PARTY THIS WEEKEND

 

“…intimate, like hanging out with a bunch of friends… don’t miss this original concept play.”
Annabelle, Hummingbird604

“…Party This Weekend doesn’t just break the fourth wall, it kicks it over and takes the audience conga dancing into the next room.”
Andrew Fleming, Vancouver Courier

“…brilliant in its simplicity… a tremendous show that pushes the boundaries of what one can expect from local theatre.”
Jen Keiller, Granville Online

“…at times funny, at times sad, but always intriguing.”
Melanie Ewan, reviewVancouver

“…definitely not your usual sit-down-and-be-quiet play… [the] story was compelling, and I at times forgot that what was happening wasn’t real.”
Kathy Yan Li, The Ubyssey

“…I felt like I was actually at a house party… PTW is a creative invention from start to finish… I would not be disappointed if I returned to the Party.”
Samantha Jung, Inward / Onward

“…the atmosphere was fun and relaxed… if you’re looking for fun on a budget, you can’t go wrong… GO WATCH IT.”
Angela Jung, yellowrainbootz

“…the cleverest party invite this summer.”
Andrea Rabinovitch, Vancouver Observer
