★★★★★ – “The most theatrically pure show I have ever seen” CBC
Jake’s Gift was inspired by Julia’s journey to Normandy, France for the 60th Anniversary of D-Day. Her multi-award winning play is a love letter to all veterans.
Jake’s Gift is a surprisingly funny drama that tells the story of a Canadian WW2 veteran who reluctantly returns to Juno Beach to find the grave of the brother who never came home.
Coming soon this fall… Outpost 31 Victoria & Scrumpy Productions present “Cocktails With Stalin” - An evening of intelligent entertainment offering not one but two of the most critically acclaimed to have recently premiered in Victoria.
Act One consists of David Elendune’s Good Night Uncle Joe - A cold war romantic thriller set in Moscow on the night of Joseph Stalin’s death. With the world teetering on the edge of nuclear armageddon, the unexpected arrival of Anna (a pretty American journalist with a dangerous past) forces ruthless KGB enforcer, Lavrentii Beria, to choose between life, love and murder.
Act Two comprises Julian Cervello’s Canterbury Cocktails – Imagine a game of charades using purely the words of England’s finest medieval poet. This one man tour de force stands not only as great theatre but as a splendid introduction to Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and deservedly won Pick of the Victoria Fringe in 2011.
Cocktails With Stalin plays at Intrepid Theatre Club, #2-1609 Blanshard Street (at Fisgard), October 22nd - 26th at 8pm, and October 29th – November 1st at 8pm. Tickets are $20 General Admission and $15 for students and seniors – Cash at the door only. Reservations can be made by leaving a message at 250 382 1948 (Ext 5) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Pay-What-You-Can tickets are offered at the door for Preview Night on October 22nd at 8pm.
