A Burnaby director-performer is back in action as part of the team for a new production at the Havana Theatre.
Backbone Theatre Collective is presenting Spine, by Clara Brennan, onstage at the Havana (1212 Commercial Dr.) from Jan. 29 to Feb. 8. It’s also offering up three performances at the Peninsula Theatre in White Rock on Jan. 24 and 25.
The play is directed by Wendy Bollard, with assistant director Sandra Medeiros of Burnaby. (Medeiros may be familiar to some local theatre lovers as one of the founders of Naked Goddess Productions, which has been featured in the NOW in the past.)
The one-woman play features Kate Besworth in a story that charts the explosive friendship between a ferocious, wise-cracking teenager, Amy, and an elderly East End widow, Gloria – with both roles being played by Besworth.
Tickets for the Havana Theatre shows are $20, with two-for-one performances on Jan. 29 and Feb. 1. Buy through www.showpass.com.
For the Peninsula Theatre shows, tickets are $26.25; buy through www.brownpapertickets.com.
