The Full Light of Day
by Daniel Brooks
Director/Dramaturg Kim Collier
Dramaturg /VR Filmaker Kevin Kerr

I was a long time subscriber and  financial supporter of the now defunct Vancouver Playhouse Theatre Company and an early on-line local theatre reviewer. (Check out Great Mischief from 2006, in the archived posts of this website, Review From The House). I was  saddened by the abrupt demise of the company in 2012, and the resulting absence of an ongoing, regular series of stimulating theatre in the Vancouver Playhouse venue. It was therefore a good feeling to be back at the Vancouver Playhouse, eagerly anticipating the Electric Company’s inaugural production of The Full Light of Day. On the acting front and  technical aspects the production lived up to my expectations.
