Event description

Description

Created by industry professionals in collaboration with a diverse group of Metro Vancouver youth, REWIRE is a new and original multi-media theatre production that speaks to both youth and adults. On the night of a symbolic lunar eclipse and a major video-game event, youth come together to bravely tackle root causes of stress including poverty, grief and sexual assault. Directed and written by Valerie Methot, in collaboration with youth from the Roundhouse Youth Theatre Action Group (RHYTAG), REWIRE highlights integrity, positive action, community support and inspires positive change in the face of stress, anxiety, and social isolation. It is a bold, must-see production full of truth, tragedy and comedy, along with original music and spectacular visuals.

Some Assembly Theatre Company is now in its 18th year of collaboratively creating and producing original plays that promote awaress, wellness, prevention and dialogue about issues facing youth. The company was recently honoured with the Deryck Thomson Award for exceptional contribution to community building and well-being.

If you are with a community group or school group and would like to see a matinee performance on May 1 @ 1:30pm, or May 2 @ 11am or May 2 @ 1:30pm, contact: info@someassembly.ca
