Chair Series Theatre back at The Point
Friday, April 28
The Chair Series, written and directed by Vancouver playwright, John McGie, is theatre at its most fundamental level. There are no large props, costumes or elaborate sets. The only prop is a chair for each actor and some sound to augment the story. The actors rely solely on their craft and the script that McGie has written specifically for each player. The pieces stand on their own, but also flow into one another to create an overall arc to the show. The performance at The Point will feature actors from Whistler, Squamish and Vancouver.
Doors are at 7pm with an opening set of live music. Cash bar and light snacks available at the Cypress Point Cafe.
The performance begins at 8pm. Adult themes and some coarse language.
Tickets available online at www.thepointartists.com
