Rocking Out at the Neanderthal Arts Festival

Published by at 10:08 pm under Entertainment,Vancouver

I’m heading to one of Vancouver’s coolest theatre festivals this weekend (No, NOT the Fringe Festival, which is in September). The Neanderthal Arts Festival┬áthat starts on Thursday features some very cutting-edge and memorable shows, some of which have become my favorite short plays I’ve ever been to, ever. So there.

What am I going to see this year? Not certain yet, but I’ve got my eye on a few:

  • Tyumen. “July 4th, 1941: Trapped in the boxcar of a motionless train, somewhere between Moscow and Siberia, two confined soldiers guard the rousing corpse of Vladimir Lenin.” Yes, that’s “rousing corpse”. It’s political satire.
  • God is a Scottish Drag Queen. I kind of want to go just for the title.
  • The Sunday Service. “An addictive cocktail of comedy.” Two things I like (well, minus the addiction, but that’s a technicality).

Are you in Vancouver? Going to the theatre festival? What are you going to see?
