Mitch and Murray fans,
We’re thrilled to announce our upcoming 2022/23 season.
For the first time in our history, we’re presenting a world premiere. Artistic director Aaron Craven’s play Instantaneous Blue, a semi-autobiographical portrait of a family’s struggle with dementia will receive its premiere at The Waterfront Theatre on Granville Island, January 6th-22nd.
The play follows a couple, Edward and Sara, as they navigate the journey of welcoming their child into the world while shepherding his declining parents out of it. Caught between the worlds of assembling IKEA baby cribs and visiting gerontologists, between finding time for sex and searching the city for a lost mother, between professional obligations and familial disaster, Sara and Edward are pushed to the emotional brink. Will they or won’t they make it through?
Several Mitch and Murray alumni artists are returning in the cast and crew, including David Mackay as director, after his many stints with our company over the years. Our cast includes veteran actors Charlie Gallant, Patti Allan, Tom McBeath, Leslie Dos Remedios, Jaycie Dotin, Jesse Miller and Eric Breker.
In the spring this season, we’ll continue our community building mandate by mentoring young artists via our annual Young Actors Scholarship through our Working Actors Gym.
We’ll also be offering new editions of “ACTING ATYPICAL”, a foundational exploration of acting for teens and adults on the autism spectrum. The initial pilot workshop was hosted last season. This workshop is one more way that Mitch and Murray Productions is breaking down barriers of access to the arts.
