Arts Club Theatre Company presents Bed & Breakfast

Granville Island Stage04 Apr '19 to 04 May '19 @ 7:30 PM - 12:00 AM

    Bed & Breakfast, a charming comedy about being out and finding home, is up next at the Arts Club's Granville Island Stage.

    The play follows a gay couple in their 30s living in Toronto. When Brett (Mark Crawford) inherits a family estate, he and his partner, Drew (Paul Dunn), move to a quiet little tourist town to set up a B&B. Once they arrive, however, they’re greeted by some of the residents with outright homophobia that makes them reconsider whether they made the right decision after all. With dozens of hilarious characters all portrayed by two actors, Bed & Breakfast is a heartfelt comedy about “being out,” skeletons in the closet, and finding a place to call home.

    Mark Crawford is an actor and a playwright. His first play, Stag and Doe, premiered at the Blyth Festival in 2014. Stag and Doe has quickly become one of the most-produced Canadian plays of the decade, with nine professional productions since its premiere. Bed & Breakfast premiered in 2015 at the Thousand Islands Playhouse, where it broke box office records. Bed & Breakfast had productions at the Centaur Theatre and Belfry Theatre in 2017.

    Artistic Director Ashlie Corcoran directs this production, and was the dramaturg and director for the premiere at the Thousand Islands Playhouse. She says, “The form of this play is really exciting—both actors play about a dozen roles each. They use a form of theatre called vocal masque, an athletic and physical form of theatre where actors make sharp shifts in voice and body to help differentiate between different characters. It’s an exciting thing to watch, especially combined with the 300 sound and 300 lighting cues that fly along, supporting the actors’ specific gear shifts. I am thrilled to bring this piece—a show I deeply love—to our audience here in Vancouver.”
