Christmas Presence (Dec 9-23, 1997)

A memorable theatre event unfolds before your eyes in the unslickest Christmas show ever to take place outside of a living room. These magical evenings of readings, music, sketches, monologues, short stories and reminiscences have become an essential part of the Christmas season for many. No two nights are the same. This year various musicians are featured with local singer/songwriter Michael Hart, joining Ron Reed in a celebration of the birth of Christ.

REMNANT (Dec 5-20, 1997)

by Ron Reed

Five generations have passed since The Plaguing suddenly destroyed most human civilization. Now, in the ruins of that devastated world, in what used to be a theatre in the heart of Vancouver, a remnant gathers to hear the lost tales of their clan, to celebrate The Christ Mass for the first time in memory. Filled with hope and startling flashes of humour, this powerful evocation of light in the heart of darkness premiered at Pacific Theatre in 1989, and has gone on to win acclaim with subsequent productions in Detroit and Edmonton.
