The following is from my friend, Joyce Lam, founder and executive director of Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre.
If you have this Sunday or Monday night free (December 5th and 6th) during this busy holiday season, come by the Cambrian Hall at 215 East 17th Avenue (off of Main Street) and see my directorial debut of a radio play called A Car Ride.
I also wrote it and my niece, Jessica Wong, plays the 10 year old girl. Tom Chin, Grace Chin, Alfred Lui, and Cyril Redillas round out the cast. A Car Ride is a live (and lively) radio play performance that confronts the Chinese Canadian cultural and generational divide through realistically recounting a young family’s Chinatown grocery trip—slimy fish scales, flying chicken feathers, and all.
It has played on Co-Op Radio and has been performed at City Fest and at The Heart of the City Festival.
This time, A Car Ride is one of more than a dozen plays and musical acts set to take the stage at Theatre In The Raw’s upcoming two-week Festival of One-Acts and Radio Plays (Nov 25 – Dec 9). A Car Ride plays November 27, and December 5, and 6 at 7:30 pm only!
Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors, with “two for one” admission on Thursday, December 2, and Monday, December 6.
