ALPHA (Vancouver International Fringe Festival 2012)

Alpha CardNormally, every year without a hitch, I promote the Vancouver International Fringe Festival, now in its 2012 edition. However, this year I have been so busy I have not had the opportunity to promote it as much as I wanted, as I have been incredibly busy. Nevertheless, I wanted to write about ALPHA, a play that promises to rock the Vancouver International Fringe Festival 2012, opening on September 6th. Produced by Compassionate Bone Theatre, ALPHA sounds like a lovely play that will most likely make you think. ALPHA plays at Studio 16, 1555 West 7th Avenue, September 7 – 15.

Rick was born to play hockey. But it’s his final year in the minors, and he still hasn’t been drafted. With the end of high school and the pressure to win a Provincial Championship looming, Rick struggles to hold his dream in focus. Armed with only a sense of humour and a big stick, is Rick ready to face off against his fears? A semi-autobiographical slapshot to the solar-plexis.

In brief: Compassionate Bone Theatre presents ALPHA, a new play by Jessie Award winner Evan Frayne. Semi-autobiographical and completely original, Alpha tells the story of Rick, a small-town boy determined to play hockey or die trying. Part of the Vancouver International Fringe Festival, Alpha plays at Studio 16 Fri Sept 7, 22:40- 23:40| Sat Sept 8, 16:30-17:30| Sun Sept 9, 12:45-13:45| Mon Sept 10, 18:15- 19:15| Thurs Sept 13, 20:30-21:30| Sat Sept 15, 20:00-21:00. Tickets $5-12.

I do hope you will get a chance to attend. I love all the amazing talent that the Vancouver International Fringe Festival showcases and ALPHA will most likely make you think and reflect on life.
