VCDS is delighted to present our next show of the season – Oscar Wilde’s, “The Importance of Being Earnest”!!
Written by: Oscar Wilde
Directed by: Rachel Bannerman
Lovers. Mistaken identity. Metaphors drawn from bees. All this and more in The Importance of Being Earnest! Come join us as we follow Jack and Algernon, two young people who create fake identities for themselves so they can travel at will as they wreak havoc across the English countryside – and steal a few hearts along the way! A LGBTQ+ centered re-imagining of Wilde’s classic play, Earnest promises to delight, to shock, and to romance you – all in a tight two hours.
Dates: October 25-27, @ 8pm
Location: Isabel Bader Theatre, 93 Charles St W

VCDS is hosting our first show of 2018 to ring in the new year – David Yee’s “lady in the red dress”! More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/780001078876006/
Written by: David Yee
Directed by: Jasmine Cabanilla
“The turmoil in Max’s life was set in motion by Sylvia, an elusive figure who enters his life and charges Max with the task of finding Tommy Jade, a Chinese immigrant from the 1920s. Dragged further into the history of the Chinese-Canadian struggle for redress and into the lives of those involved, Max discovers that not only is his life in danger, but also his son’s.
A modern-day noir that draws from both Haruki Murakami and Frank Miller, lady in the red dress is a darkly comic story about the skeletons in our closets and the consequences of our inactions told by one of Canada’s most-promising young playwrights.” (playwrightscanada.com)
