Plank Talk: The List & France Perras | July 20th, 2012
Plank sat down with France Perras and Riel Hahn. They talk about the show, the unique script, and how it got from the page to the small kitchen in the basement of The Cultch.
A Site-Specific Tale of Everyday
To be a wife and a mother living in the country is what she always wanted and what she has achieved. No longer comfortable in her situation, she rebels against her daily list of chores, only to find that she neglected to take care of one task in particular, an oversight that may have led to her neighbor's death.
Hosted by Riel Hahn. You can find out more about her amazing comedy at http://infidelia.blogspot.ca/
Inside The Cave: The List Comes to Neanderthal Arts Festival | July 10th, 2012
Neanderthal is delighted to present our first site-specific production! We've never done this before! The show is called The List. The one-woman show features the very accomplished bilingual artist France Perras as a woman who, through her neglect of a friend’s request, inadvertently becomes responsible for her death.
Written by Jennifer Tremblay and translated by Shelley Tepperman, BoucheWhacked! showcases the daring contemporary works of the Anglophone and Francophone artist cultures, bringing together the thriving talent of two communities. Director Jack Paterson is the recipient of the Ray Michal Award for Outstanding Body of Work, along with four Jessie Richardson Award nominations.
Winner of the 2008 Governor General Award, The List will be the West Coast English language premiere. Seating is limited to ten seats per show for this intimate production -- so, don’t wait too long to pick up a pair for yourself.
