100 SAINTS YOU SHOULD KNOW -by Kate Fodor -May 4-26
Then repent! Put your underwear on your head and say 11 Hail Marys!
IN SHORT: Pacific Theatre presents Kate Fodor’s 100 Saints You Should Know, a biting and darkly humorous story of five souls attempting the simple task of living their lives and finding how un-simple that can be. Playing May 4-26 Wednesday – Saturday at 8pm with 2pm matinee on Saturday at Pacific Theatre, 1440 W 12th Ave. For tickets ($16.50-29.50 HST not incl.) call 604.731.5518 or pacifictheatre.org.
Vancouver, BC – Oh, we of little faith. Meet Theresa, a former wild girl turned freelance maid who has been struck with the surprising desire to learn how to pray. She tries to learn how from Matthew, a faithful priest who has been struck with the realization that he is no longer able to pray, and so he runs to his long-suffering mother Colleen – a woman who can’t not be a hostess. Pack in Theresa’s daughter, Abby, a classic troubled teen whose motto seems to be apathy and shock value (no surprises there), and Garrett, the grocer’s son who likes long walks with a flask.
Pacific Theatre is proud to present its season finale, Kate Fodor’s 100 Saints You Should Know, developed by Chicago’s renowned Steppenwolf Theatre. This tale of five souls attempting what should be a relatively simple task: to live life being true to the person they were meant to be. Turns out, it’s not so simple.
Featuring an ensemble cast of emerging and newly-emerged actors, 100 Saints You Should Know is directed by the award-winning Anthony F. Ingram, who had this to say about the project: “It’s tons of fun working with actors who are at the beginning of the career and so full of talent and potential. I’m starting to realize I’m a veteran of the stage – what a thought!”
The rest of the ensemble includes Kerri Norris (Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train), Katherine Gauthier (King Lear), Joel Stephanson (Godspell), Rebecca deBoer (A Bright Particular Star), and Chris Lam (The Mystery of Edwin Drood). Stage management by Laura McLean. Design by Lauchlin Johnston.
“Kate Fodor’s achingly truthful drama discerns the faint outlines of hope in a universe of lost connections.” – Time Out
