We produced Milner's play LEARNING TO LIVE WITH PERSONAL GROWTH back around 1992, with Ron and Judy Buchan Robinson in the cast, Morris Ertman directing at the Gateway Studio Theatre. Now United Players are bringing another of his plays to Vancouver! Email from him below.

Dear western friends,

I’m pleased to inform you about the United Players production of Facts, in Vancouver, opening November 7.

Facts is a murder mystery, set in the Palestinian West Bank. It opened in Ottawa in 2010, and has since been performed in Toronto; Palestine and Israel (in Arabic); London, U.K.; and Istanbul (in Turkish).

A few reviews from London …

Time Out — four stars, Critics’ Choice
— tensions rise until ideologies and resentments pour out like sweat ... a deservedly brilliant UK premiere ... striking in its lucidity

Financial Times — four stars
— taut and volatile … a pressure cooker ... a powerful piece that digs deep

Middle East Monitor
— refreshing ... lightening humour

Theatre Guide London
— An intense psychological drama, a meticulous police procedural, a history lesson ... all these in a high-energy ninety minutes.

Looking forward to seeing you …
