VANCOUVER, B.C. - Blackbird is a new Vancouver theatre company, formed under the artistic leadership of John Wright to perform classic works from the “great playwrights of the ancient and modern world”.

TORONTO, ON – Despite the title of my column, my week in Toronto left me with nothing to rant about (theatrically speaking) since I thoroughly enjoyed all the productions I saw, including The Government Inspector, Home Child, and Our Town.

TORONTO, ON - I have never thought that Vancouver rain would be something I would miss, but a week spent walking about downtown Toronto, alternatively freezing any exposed extremities and then being baked in overheated buildings, has made me actually miss Vancouver’s weather. However the weather vagaries have been more than compensated for by the range of theatre experiences available in Toronto
