Douglas College theatre students staging Subsequent Conversations

A group of Douglas College theatre students is putting on a production that delves into the relationships of men and women living in urban North America.

Subsequent Conversations, a series of one-act plays, is being presented by the Douglas College departments of Theatre, and Stagecraft and Event Technology October 31-November 7.

The production features five works written by Neil LaBute, a multiple-award-winning U.S. playwright, including Bench Seat, Land of the Dead, A Guy Walks Into a Bar, Merge and The Shape of Things.

"We are excited to present this unique collection of Neil LaBute’s one-act plays," Director Cheryl Swan says. 

"I carefully selected works from his repertoire that I hope will challenge our theatre students and engage our audience. With this production you can expect complex characters, a darkly comedic sensibility and definitely some surprises."

Subsequent Conversations runs October 31-November 7 at the Studio Theatre, Douglas College, 700 Royal Ave., New Westminster. Tickets ($8-$12) are available through Massey Theatre, 604 521 5050.
