Or so says Vancouver Observer about Party This Weekend, our latest site-specific venture.  Theatre experience + house party = unmissable.  It all starts this Friday, running weekends ONLY, through August.  Our cozy venue will be filled up by those who reserve ASAP …that’s you, right?  But if you want to be on our VIP guest list for Opening Weekend (avec beer & wine), there are just a tiny handful of tickets left.  And I mean tiny, so get on that.
