The World Premiere of Instantaneous Blue

Mitch and Murray Productions recently celebrated our company’s ten-year anniversary with the world premiere of Instantaneous Blue from Friday, January 6 to Sunday, January 22, 2023 at The Waterfront Theatre on Granville Island. The play received an incredible reception from audiences and critics and set the all-time attendance record for our company.

Instantaneous Blue, a semi-autobiographical portrait of a family’s struggle with dementia, is writer Aaron Craven’s first full-length play. Both his parents simultaneously fell into decline with dementia and Alzheimer’s. His experience as a member of the “sandwich generation” – a generation of middle-aged people who raise children while parenting their parents – along with his experience as a curator of plays and advocacy work in the world of dementia was the catalyst for creating this new work.

L – R: Performers Patti Allan, Tom McBeath, Charlie Gallant, Olivia Hutt and Jesse Miller

Directed by David Mackay. With performers Patti Allan, Eric Breker, Leslie Dos Remedios, Charlie Gallant, Olivia Hutt, Tom McBeath and Jesse Miller.
