Nov 12-14: Hello I Must Be Going

Shannon Lythgoe is a long-time, long-range Soul Foodie. She was closely involved with Pacific Theatre fifteen years ago and more, before moving to Nelson. But she keeps in touch, plays the occasional game of Scrabble with our Head Chef, and now sends word about...

Hi Folks - I'm letting all my Lower Mainland family and friends know about this show, which will be playing at the Shadbolt Centre in November. Bessie Wapp, who co-wrote and stars in this one-woman show is not only a dear friend, but also an actress and musician of prodigious talent. I saw this show last year here in Nelson, and was deeply moved. Bessie was invited to perform a showcase at Pacific Contact last spring, and as a result has been very busy touring this show to all parts of the province. I highly recommend you see this show, if you can!
Cheers - Shannon

Twin Fish Theatre presents
Burnaby: Nov 12, 13 & 14

“An exceptional production… astonishing transformations… hilarious recollections… Bravo!” Stephanie Dawson, NDN

Equal parts humour and pathos, HELLO, I MUST BE GOING tells the true stories of five generations of Jewish Lithuanian women (relations of performer Bessie Wapp) struggling to protect their families from invading armies: Russian, Soviet, Nazi, and Soviet again. Those that flee to the USA face World War II and Vietnam, while another lands in the tumult of Israel. HELLO, I MUST BE GOING celebrates women's resistance to war through the stories that don't make the headlines - stories of courage, sacrifice and love.

Nov 12-14 thurs-sat, 8pm
Shadbolt Centre, Burnaby
Tickets: $25/20 (under 12: $5), 604.205-3000
