Event Description

This year's festival features plays from the Powerhouse Theatre (Vernon), S.O.A.P. Theatre (Oliver) and Shuswap Theatre (Salmon Arm). Wednesday May 24 “Concord Floral” by Jordan Tannahill (Shuswap Theatre) The hulk of Concord Floral, an enormous abandoned greenhouse, dominates the wild space as well as the imagination of the teens who live nearby. It’s a place of refuge, transformation and of freedom. It’s also a dangerous place that remembers their past deeds. When one of their buried secrets comes back to haunt them, ten teenagers must make a choice in order to save themselves. Thursday May 25 “7 Stories” by Morris Panych (S.O.A.P. Theatre) 7 Stories is a Canadian dark comedy that features a character generically named “Man”, who stands on the seventh story ledge of an apartment building, contemplating suicide. While attempting to muster the courage to jump, Man suffers constant interruption by residents of the apartment building, each of whom have a story to tell. Can Man find anything in their seven stories to convince him to get off the ledge, or is the human race too far gone? This timely play recognizes that mental health plays a role in everyone’s life, and can impact us all in different ways. Friday May 26 “Butterflies Are Free” by Leonard Gershe (the Powerhouse Theatre) Butterflies Are Free is a full-length comedy about a young man leaving his over-protective mother to live in Greenwich Village. When he starts to fall for his off-the-wall neighbor, his mother’s controlling instincts go into overdrive with hilariously touching results. A funny, touching and thought-provoking play that takes the audience on an emotional ride while confronting fears of self confidence, personal responsibility and the risks that go along with loving someone. All shows start at 7:30 PM; Doors open at 7PM Location: Mary Irwin Theatre Rotary Centre for the Arts, Kelowna Tickets $25: $5 for students with valid I.D.
