“THE CHURCH @ THORNDALE” (1244 W THORNDALE AVE—less than two minute walk from Thorndale Red Line)
After her husband is killed, a transit cop finds herself mixed up in Vancouver’s criminal underground. A fast-paced twister of a play that keeps you guessing until the end. Come with us into the dark and let your imagination run wild…
An 80-minute noir mystery set completely in the dark, the actors play nearly a dozen characters including cops, priests, journalists, and grifters in a theatre experience critics have called “innovative,” “elaborate,” and “viscerally compelling”!
Beatrice, a Vancouver transit cop, discovers both her husband’s dead body and his history as an undercover police officer working deep within Vancouver's criminal underground. In search of the killer, she recruits her late husband’s last known informant, a drug runner who carries secrets of his own. The two embark on a hair-raising investigation through the city's colorful characters in search of justice… and revenge.
