It is National Aboriginals day and we would like to acknowledge that we rehearse, work and perform on the traditional territories of the Semiahmoo, Katzie, Kwikwetlem, Kwantlen, Qayqayt and Tsawwassen First Nations. Please take today to recognize and honour the Indigenous peoples who came before us. Thank you.

"Many cities in Canada are less than a hundred years old. But aboriginal people have lived in this land for more than a hundred centuries. . .On June 21st, this year and every year, Canada will honour the native peoples who first brought humanity to this great land. And may the first peoples of our past always be full and proud partners in our future." Governor General Roméo LeBlanc

CharacterRole Ages
BethanyA new woman. Bright, strong, independent, beautiful. But she's a locked vault, living life only for tomorrow. Unwilling to face her past; when it comes back to haunt her, she is unprepared to deal with it. Dependency - 10, self esteem - 0approx. 20-30
FloydBeth's Fiancee. The tortoise. Stable. Safe. Durable. Excitement and adventure are things he's read about in books. But he loves Bethany, and when that is threatened he is going to break out of his shell. Even if it kills him.approx. 20-30
ChanceChance: Beth's first husband. The Hare. Wild and free. Living fast and hard. Adventure was his middle name. He loves Beth as well and he's not about to let a little thing like his own death keep him from spending the rest of their life together. Not at any cost. Any.approx. 20-30
CrystalFlamboyant with a capital FLAM. Actually with a capital BOYANT as well. Cigar-chomping, vodka swilling kook, squeezing the life out of each and every moment. A psychic with a sarcastic edge that's Wilkenson sharp. But there's a darkness behind that party girl facade.approx. 20-30
