2024 One-Act Play Festival tickets available now

Posted by

As we reported in our recent newsletter, we are delighted to announce that, for the first time since 2015, our popular One-Act Play Festival will be an ALL GABRIOLA show featuring three new plays by local writers.

Rehearsals are well underway and everyone involved is excited about this year’s show.

In The Care Aide Visits, Elise, a wealthy, self-centred divorcée, is annoyed to discover her cheerful young care aide has been replaced by Grace, a woman her own age, who is made of very stern stuff indeed. A battle of wills ensues, dredging up dark secrets from the past. Is it true that no one comes through adolescence unscathed?

In The Waiting Room, two men meet in a waiting room at Vancouver General Hospital. Ernie and Frank are both there awaiting news about their wives. While they make conversation to pass the time, they are unaware of being observed by a woman. As time passes, these strangers discover they have more in common than they thought.

Shades of Green by first-time playwright Carol Fergusson is a contemporary commentary on love, marriage, jealousy and social media, described by Carol as “an urban couple’s journey through accusations, heightened emotions, professed love and the harsh realities of life”.

It’s going to be a great show!
