Examines Racism and Intolerance
VANCOUVER - A Night in November - Belfast playwright Marie Jones' hit black comedy, showcases the talents of beloved Irish actor Frank Talbot.
It will be presented by MC Productions for two nights only on November 27-28 at the PAL Vancouver Studio Theatre located on the eighth floor, 581 Cardero Street in Coal Harbour, Vancouver.
A Night in November by Marie Jones is adapted and directed by Frank Talbot and produced by Laurie MacKenzie.
This thought-provoking play explores racism and intolerance with biting humour: set in 1993 Belfast, football fever was raging at the explosive World Cup soccer qualifying final between the Republic of Ireland and North of Ireland teams.
The match was simply to determine if the Republic team, who only needed to draw, would advance to the World Cup in New York the following year. The North of Ireland team, while not in contention, was in a position to beat the Republic team and keep them from advancing.
A Night in November is the dynamic story of one man's wakeup call to re-examine both his cultural beliefs and his life after having attended that now-infamous event.
The bigotry and hatred displayed throughout the match by both fans and team management alike are still talked about to this day, making this play a timeless and powerful work.
Patrons are invited to enjoy the spectacular PAL Rooftop Theatre with cabaret-style seating and candlelight. A fundraising event for the PAL Hobby Workshop project, admission is only $20. For tickets, call (604) 633-0330 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
