sep 9-18 | lucia frangione | leave of absence | fringe

Lucia developed "Leave Of Absence" with us at Pacific Theatre, but in its original full-length form it was just too big a project for us to afford to produce. She's been working on a new treatment that we'll be considering for our 2012-13 season. But meantime, Cia's pared the piece down to its essential core to be staged by ACTivist Theatre Collective as part of a trio of short plays marking the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International, which will be shown as part of the Vancouver Fringe Festival.

Short and Sweet: Small Plays for Big Ideas
September 9 - 18
Fridays and Saturdays 7 & 9:45pm
Sundays 7pm only
Photohaus Gallery | 14 W7 Ave

Amnesty International and ACTivist Theatre Collective have joined together to present this evening of socially-engaged theatre, live music, fresh art, and sweet justice (along with a cocktail bar and a host of tasty treats). It’s an experience not to be missed.

Short and Sweet: Small Plays for Big Ideas is an event that showcases three entertaining short plays all based on human rights issues: The Possible Lives of Dolores Maria Garcia Rodriguez by Zoe Green & Jordan Hall, and the winners of the ACTivist Theatre Collective & Amnesty International short-script playwriting competition, The Apartment by Trina Davies, and Leave of Absence by Lucia Frangione

We invite you to take part in our event at Photohaus, a photography gallery just off Main Street. There you will enjoy live music, perhaps a cocktail, fresh-baked treats, and you’ll have the opportunity to view the art that we have selected for the Event from our Amnesty/ACTivist Art Competition.
