Last year our friends at Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Theatre (co-producers of RE:UNION) produced THIS STAYS IN THE ROOM, featuring PT artists Alexa Devine and Robert Salvador, plus stage managed by long-time PT stage manager Lois Dawson. They're remounting next month if you missed it last time.

This Stays In The Room returns to Vancouver following its 2014 Critic’s Choice Innovation Award for a limited engagement that will see both actors and audience on the stage of the Waterfront Theatre.
“This Stays in the Room is simultaneously one of the humblest and most ambitious shows of the season. It is also one of the very best.” Colin Thomas, Georgia Straight
The play is a bold exploration of what it requires to face ourselves and others as we grapple with shame, forgiveness, vulnerability and hope. Originally produced in an art gallery, this remount moves it into a traditional theatre space in an entirely non-traditional way. Seated on stage, in the midst of the action, the audience will be enveloped by the true life stories of its cast and creative team. Each scene pushes the public/private boundaries of what is socially acceptable to talk about and reveal to others. The stories ultimately invite us to act as witness to the disquiet of other people' s internal dialogue and struggle, while inevitably demanding us to reflect on our own thoughts and potential uncertainty in the face of morally ambiguous behaviour.
Written by the entire creative team, This Stays in the Room is directed by Mindy Parfitt, and features Alexa Devine, Allan Morgan, Manami Hara and Robert Salvador. Set & lighting design by Andreas Kahre. Video projection design by Cande Andrade. Sound design by Noah Drew. Choreography by Amber Funk Barton. Dramaturgy by Heidi Taylor. Stage management by Lois Dawson.
