A site-specific piece featuring four intertwining plays which took place at a house party in East Vancouver. Audience members became “party-goers” who followed the leads around and experienced the night’s events from their point of view; each lead had a complete story arc but to understand the full night’s events, party-goers would need to see all four shows. I wrote the storyline for Vivian (Maggie Ma), one of the leads. Vivian is, was and remains fly as fuck. I also wrote some social media-focused promotional materials. Party This Weekend is being developed as a choose-your-own adventure style series of web videos and is currently in post-production.
