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

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR RON REED

Pacific Theatre occupies a distinctive place in Vancouver—not only because its home is in the historic Chalmers Heritage Building, nestled just off the busy South Granville neighbourhood, or even because of its one-of-a-kind, alley-style theatre, with the audience sitting on each side of the action like flies on the wall. Pacific Theatre was dubbed “theatre that matters” by local critic Colin Thomas because of its special mandate: exploring the spiritual side of the human experience. Because of this, every play, from the whimsical and utterly charming Almost, Maine to the intriguing historical drama Tolkien to the gut-wrenching drama of Ruined, gets to the heart of what it means to be human: how we forgive, redeem, and love one another.

“I went into this year’s season selection resolved to stretch our limits, to find ways to make certain shows happen. And…we got lucky. Everything lined up, and we got everything we wanted,” says Founding Artistic Director Ron Reed on the outlook for the coming season. “You’ll be delighted, challenged, entertained, provoked, and moved by what I think is the strongest season of plays we’ve offered in many a year.”

Beautiful stories that just get into you through your cracks and remind you what it is to be human.
–Julia Siedlanowska, Pacific Theatre Patron
