On at the Evergreen Cultural Centre is the double bill of “Till Death” – The tale of Six Queens. Six Love stories. Six Deaths. One Actress!
It all starts in the afterlife, in a bizarre waiting room of sorts. One by one, the wives of Henry VIII arrive, much to the shock and dismay of each previous wife. What culminates is a heated frenzy of an ex-wives club where these women swap stories, toss Anne Boleyn’s head around, pick on the ugly German one, and, most importantly, fight for the right to be acknowledged as Henry’s true bride and eternal partner.
But when Henry arrives…everything changes.
And then to top off the evening at the Evergreen Cultural Centre there is “No Tweed Too Tight: Another Grant Canyon Mystery”
More belligerent than an orangutan at a monkey shaving contest. More uncaring than a potato salad at a funeral. As inexplicable as a… you wouldn’t understand.
The year is 1976. Grant Canyon is a perpetually inebriated insurance investigator. Every scene starts with him coming to consciousness on an airplane with no pilots (or getting buried alive, or on a Russian sub), and every scene ends with him either getting knocked out or drinking himself into oblivion. In his few coherent moments he leaves a wake of dead bodies, satisfied ladies, and empty bottles as he staggers toward a shocking and fiery conclusion.
The performances run from February 25-27 at 8pm in the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam.
