See Seven announced its 13th season of independent theatre including five world premieres, world renowned improv, black comedy, documentary film-making, existential cabaret, award-winning theatre companies, celebrated Canadian playwrights, haute couture, gender musings, and the final hours of the earth.
Richard Wolfe, President of See Seven Performing Arts Society, says “our ongoing mission is to make independent and alternative theatre accessible to audiences who love a little fire in their diet. We encourage theatre lovers to spend some time with this year’s line-up of companies and shows. Experience some of the best theatrical performances Vancouver has to offer. We promise you won’t go home hungry.”
Included in this year’s line-up is the world premiere of the Zee Zee Theatre and Screaming Weenie’s co-production of Nelly Boy at the PAL Theatre beginning on October 22nd. Though biologically a boy, Nelly is hardly male, nor female. A tumultuous teen in a family who can’t understand gender difference, Nelly takes the audience through a haunting tale of suburban life. An interrogator, in turn, attempts to put the pieces together in order to discover how Nelly was found running naked along a highway.
This year’s See Seven Theatre Season also includes the 10th Annual International Improv Festival (Sep 29 – Oct 3), House of Kosa (Oct 1-10), Nelly Boy (Oct 22 – Nov 1), The Project (Nov 4-15), After the Quake (Nov 19 – Dec 5), Demon Voice (Nov 19-28), A Beautiful View (Dec 5-13/16-19), Donald and Lenore (March 6-20, 2010), The Russian Play & Mexico City (March 23-28, 2010), Cozy Catastrophe (April 7-17, 2010), and Herr Beckmann’s People (June 10-19, 2010)
