As the fires continue to rage across BC, weeks of haze and red moons here on the coast.  Please donate to the Canadian Red CrossUntil October 12th, the Province of BC will match all individual donations. My thoughts have been with all the people in my life who earn their living outdoors: colleagues at the Caravan Farm Theatre, Brian Campbell @ Blessed Bee Apiary, Kevin MacDonald's team of skilled home renovators, and all the good farmers at Trout Lake Market working their tails off to put wholesome food on my table. Thank you all for toughing it out.

And now the rain has come to turn the tide. There's a cool in the air, and my thoughts turn to old wool sweaters, roasted red squash, gently nudging my teenage daughter to hop on her bike just 5 minutes earlier to make it to school on time, warm arms to fend off the chill.  And work.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Simon Stephens goes into previews at The Stanley Theatre, on September 6th, 2018.  Currently in rehearsal,  Arts Club artistic director Ashlie Corcoran and choreographer Kayla Dunbar have been putting us through the gears. Sore muscles and brains crammed full of intricate details, this crack ensemble of artists looks forward to sharing this beautiful story about a 15 year old autistic boy, and the world he inhabits. Tickets available now through the Arts Club box office.

More Arrow episodes.  My thanks to the producers of this top notch CW show, for continuing to bend over backwards to accommodate my theatre schedule.  Not everyone does that.  These guys are a cut above.  

In research mode for the Arts Club production of The Orchard (After Chekhov) by Serena Parmar.  Rehearsals begin January 2019. Running at The Stanley Theatre from March 21-April 21, 2019.
