Jules has spent the past four years living through Jake and Isabelle in her knock-out one-woman show JAKE'S GIFT (we hosted a two week run last season, but she's been all over the country with this production), and now she's playing her first new role since putting on Jake's snappy army coat in The Electric Company's ALL THE WAY HOME. Press release below.
In early January, Electric Company Theatre will draw the curtain on its most intimate production to date, ALL THE WAY HOME. After the immense success of 2010’s ambitious theatre/film hybrid TEAR THE CURTAIN, director Kim Collier is back in Vancouver with a new vision that brings the audience right onto the stage of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and into the world of a profoundly moving and personal story.
“This is exciting new territory for Electric Company,” says Kim, the company’s co-founder and last year’s winner of the 2010 Siminovitch Prize in Theatre for direction. “It’s an entirely lo-fi experience offering our audience an extraordinarily intimate connection to the story.”
Tad Mosel’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a beautifully crafted journey of love and spiritual transformation. In a quiet, rural town in the early 1900s, a family is shaken to its core by the untimely and accidental death of one of its own. Even as the loss is deeply felt and shared across the divide of many generations, a mother quietly clings to the promise of renewal and life.
As unconventional as it is intimate, ALL THE WAY HOME brings the Queen Elizabeth Theatre to life in a way the city has never seen before. The audience is embedded into the set design, entering the stage from the wings and sitting in the midst of the action. Some of Vancouver’s most celebrated talent have rallied around the Electric Company to take on this challenge and bring Kim’s bold vision to life.
