Red Birds makes it’s world premiere this November as a co-production between Solo Collective and Western Gold Theatre. This play is a bittersweet comedy about three generations of dirt-poor women whose lives are thrown into chaos when a birth mother is revealed who is both incredibly wealthy and ready to marry a charming gold-digger. Red Birds features three fantastic roles for women over the age of 50. It’s also a poignant look at relationships between women from radically different backgrounds and ages.
This production is directed by Scott Bellis, with set by Stephanie Wong, lighting by John Webber, sound design by Ben Elliott, and costumes and props by Alaia Hamer. The cast is Anna Hagan, Christina Jastrzembska, Gerry Mackay, France Perras, and Gili Roskies. Christine Reinfort is the producer working with Solo Collective Theatre.
Red Birds is at PAL Studio Theatre, Nov 2 – 18. Shows are Tuesday to Saturday at 7:30pm, Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $27/$32 available in advance from redbirds.brownpapertickets.com, or call 604.363.5734. For more information: Ellie O’Day, firstname.lastname@example.org, 604.731.3339
