Recently at the Havana Cafe, I was having lunch with David Bloom (Artistic Director, actor, writer, fight master - all-round Renaissance Man of Vancouver's alternative theatre scene). To arrange this meeting was an exercise in perseverance. Why? Bloom is a dervish of activity - just finished a role in Three Sisters, already gearing up to teach at Capilano University and now plunged into rehearsal for his next appearance in Brief Encounters.

At that my mind reels. Brief Encounters?! I cry out, “Why would you do a Noel Coward play?! Is there an  audience for that in small theatre? Isn’t...
