Us & Everything We Own is my second collaboration with Twenty-Something Theatre. It premiered at the Performing Arts Lodge (PAL) Studio Theatre in Vancouver on April 5, 2013 after two years of development – which included a City of Vancouver-sponsored staged reading at Carousel Theatre in May 2012.
The story is focused on a young couple whose hunger for meaningful careers and home ownership threatens to tear them apart. The cast of the premiere included Adam Lolacher, Julie McIsaac, Genevieve Fleming, and Jason Clift. I did a lot of press leading up to the premiere (linked below), bringing my writing career under the spotlight in a whole new way.
Reviewers say …
“It really speaks to the issues confronting twenty and thirty-somethings in an entertaining and meaningful way.”
“This is a disturbing play meant for the youth of today, especially here in Vancouver.”
