Buy Tickets to see “lady in the red dress”

VCDS is hosting our first show of 2018 to ring in the new year – David Yee’s “lady in the red dress”! More info:

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.” (

Location: The Cat’s Eye at Vic’s Goldring Student Centre

2016-2017 Season

Our 2016-2017 season was exciting indeed! We started with the classic Peter Pan, then moved on to the black comedy The Goat, or Who is Sylvia. To end 2016, we saw love begin and end in The Last Five Years, and the touching drama Afterlife: A Ghost Story began 2017. For the U of T Drama Festival, our submission – A Perfect Bowl of Pho – won Best Submission! Ending our season, Sondheim’s sensational musical Assassins took to the stage. Next year is VCDS’s 100th season – hopefully you’ll be celebrating with us!
