apr 4-14 | stationary: a recession-era musical | delinquent theatre

If you missed STATIONARY in its hugely popular run last summer at the Neanderthal Festival, here's your chance to check it out. Witty, fun - kind of a musical version of "The Office" when it was still good. PT connection? Well, Laura McLean, the director, has stage managed a ton of our shows, and designers Jess Howell and Lauchlin Johnston are PT regulars. In fact, our Artistic Director Ron Reed is such a fan of Delinquent Theatre, he's on their board of directors. So… Go!

Under the fluorescent lights of real life, obligations and social niceties loom large. But in the world of day-dreams, all things are possible. STATIONARY: A RECESSION-ERA MUSICAL explores the lives of 9 young people at a moment when big dreams meet reality checks. “The baby boom is just an echo now,” and STATIONARY gives voice to the generation left behind. Just trying to get by in a “yoga and sushi-swilling succubus of a city,” they’ve stepped out, bachelors degree in hand, to find out not everyone can be a winner. In STATIONARY the actors are the orchestra, pulling a wide and whimsical array of instruments from their desks to orchestrate their own emotional life. Real life is disappointing. Singing about it definitely takes the edge off.

April 4 to 14, 2013 at Presentation House Theatre (333 Chesterfield Ave, North Vancouver). Tuesday through Saturday at 8PM, Saturday and Sunday at 2PM. Tickets $14-28, available at or at 604-990-3474.
