Nov 1-25: "Life After God," Touchstone Theatre / UBC

Yup, that's Bob Fraser floating (drowning?) in that there pool. The Gentleman Caller in Liffey's staging of THE GLASS MENAGERIE that Ian Farthing produced on our stage a couple years ago. The hockey-playing brother and lover-of-the-main-character in PRODIGAL SON this past spring, our co-production with Touchstone Theatre, who are producing this upcoming stage version of Douglas Coupland's amazing novel. This is the show I've been looking forward to more than anything else in this year's theatre season - the novel is a personal favourite (call that extreme favourite), and Touchstone's work is so fine, I can't wait. Katrina Dunn is directing, and ain't nobody better.

Here's more...

Touchstone and Theatre at UBC, with Playwrights Theatre Centre, have been developing Life After God over the past two years. Visit the LAG website and click "On the Subject" to read more about the process and inspiration for the play.
