GOOD-FOR-THE-SOUL THEATRE ON A TRAVERSE STAGE

It’s world premiere time at Pacific Theatre! The 2016-17 season begins with not one, but three brand-new scripts right off the top, telling stories set in our backyard and around the world.

The season kicks off with A Good Way Out by Cara Norrish, which offers a close-up view of life inside a Surrey biker gang. Next comes Maki Yi’s Suitcase Stories, a charming one-woman show about her journey from South Korea to Canada and across the country, with only one carry-on sized suitcase in tow. For Christmas, local legend Lucia Frangione brings three of her most beloved characters to life with Holy Mo! A Christmas Show!, an irreverent re-telling of the Nativity story.

After that series of new beginnings, take some comfort in the familiar, albeit with a twist. The title, Corleone: The Shakespearean Godfather says it all—a well-known mob story re-imagined as if written by Shakespeare.

Next on the PT stage comes Valley Song, a story of resilience and change in South Africa. Finally, the season closes with the performance of Outside Mullingar by none other than John Patrick Shanley.

In addition, our Artistic Director’s Series offers Testament, an original creation that explores the life of Jesus with music and readings by the likes of Bruce Cockburn and Tom Waits.

Finally, the season wouldn’t be complete without old favourites. Christmas Presence returns with new holiday season songs, stories, and poems, and Sideshow Comedy Improv returns with its signature brand of family sketch comedy.
