The 2019 Lineup

Can You See Me?

Written and Performed by Stephen Lytton

A tour de force by one of Canada’s most compelling First Nations actors. Stephen Lytton blends powerful narratives to leave audiences more deeply resonant with what it means to grow up aboriginal and disabled and yet flourish in Vancouver’s infamous downtown east side. This riveting performance uplifts through its intimacy and, ultimately, its embodiment of hope.

Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind

Directed by Rob Mason-Brown
Fred Skeleton Theatre Company

Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind opened in 1988 and is still playing today, making it the longest-running show in Chicago history. It is a highly entertaining ensemble experiment in presenting “30 Plays in 60 Minutes.” The two-minute plays are performed in random order with an interactive audience. An onstage 60-minute timer keeps everyone honest.

May be adult themes

Directed by James Bowlby
Salmon Arm Actors’ Studio

The Lone Rider travels from one adventurous situation, to another. First from being arrested for murder (she’s innocent, of course) to being tracked down by the One-Eyed Man on a moving train, to finding out from Chen that the White Dog is not a dog but a Guardian Lion, to being hunted down by Lloyds of London investigator, and much more. All done on a bar stage through the magic of mime.

An Intriguing Title

The Saucy Fops

As always, the Fops will present a series of short, comedic plays – lots of movement, music and lots of funny …

The Saucy Fops write, create and produce all of their own work.  They have toured across Canada with the Canadian Fringe Festival to much acclaim, earning themselves 3 different Best of Fest Awards. They are proud to call Kamloops, BC, their home base and have been doing productions there for 16 years.  The Fops have been a crowd favourite at all four previous Theatre on the Edge festivals . We’re delighted to have them back again. 

Some mature content.
