…and I didn’t even know it.
Two weeks ago the Langley Advance ran an article about You Still Can’t at Pacific Theatre, talking about the connection between it and Trinity Western University. From the article:
A Langley contingent is collaborating to bring a wickedly hilarious comedy to the stage in Vancouver this month.
Many theatre lovers will be thrilled to hear the Vanderhofs are back; they’re an eccentric family first brought to life in the comic classic You Can’t Take It With You. Well, playwright Ron Reed has revived this family in his homegrown sequel called You Still Can’t, which opened last week on the stage of Pacific Theatre.
Reed is an award-winning playwright who founded Pacific Theatre in 1984 and serves as the group’s artistic director. He has also been teaching advanced acting classes at Trinity Western University (TWU) for the past 20 years, and in 2006 took on the designation as TWU’s artist-in-residence.
But he’s not the only one with a tie to Langley. Reed is joined by five actors, current TWU students or recent graduates, as well as the resident stage manager Lois Dawson, who is also a TWU alumni.
My mom called me today, having googled me this morning and found the article. I love that my mom googles me
