“Slumming” is a new work by Barbara Ellison; Ellison also directs. The show introduces us to the complex lives of recently fallen from grace, middle-class Grace, played by Terri Anne Taylor, and a young sex worker Brittany, played by Stevie Jackson. The program notes tell us the play had its genesis in the Downtown East Side (DTES) as Ellison observes a sex worker at work from the rehearsal hall at the Firehall.

One of the 14 onsite shows at Granville Island, Pirates? features a lively cast of seven performers from Quimera Collective. Their program includes helpful instructions on how to fold the paper into a sailor hat... which should tell you a great deal about the tenor of this performance which takes place at the Kids Tugboat near the Kids Market.
