After stunning reviews and a sold-out extended run, Horseshoes & Hand
Grenades Equity Co-op is back with a remount of the Fall 2004 hit, You
Are Here. For those who made it on the waiting list but not into the
theatre... for those who were urged to see the show but couldn’t... or
for those who want another dose of the play that made both The
Vancouver Sun and The Vancouver Courier’s “Top Ten theatre productions
of 2004” lists... here’s another chance. You Are Here is an
unsettling, daring, intimate, funny and profound theatrical experience.
“Theatrical Gem of 2004 ... so hot that those who see Vancouver’s
theatre scene as too staid are urged to see this show.” (Peter Birnie,
Meet Alison, a once-idealistic writer turned celebrity journalist
trying to figure out how she ended up middle-aged, in the film
business, in front of an audience and not at all sure why. Has she
died? Is she supposed to entertain all of these people? Smiling
nervously, Alison sits in the spotlight and re-examines her life as her
memories, insights, hopes and rationalizations fly across the stage. In
this remarkable and beautifully simple play, Alison’s life spirals into
chaos and tragedy: a failed career, a failed marriage, the loss of a
pregnancy, addiction, her own death. With poignancy, bitter humor, and
an appreciation for the glimmers of light and friendship that kept her
afloat along the way, Alison rediscovers love that fades, hopes that
die, and enduring friendship that offers the promise of redemption.
"The superb Colleen Wheeler delivers the performance of the year."
