Playland at Pacific Theatre, Win Tickets and Dinner

Comments 53 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Pacific Theatre presents Playland on their mainstage at 12th and Hemlock from November 5th until the 27th.

Directed by recent Jessie Award winner Anthony F. Ingram, Playland stars Michael Kopsa and Tom Pickett. It is “a powerful and explosive exploration of guilt, condemnation, and the possibility for redemption during apartheid in South Africa, Playland is intensely dark, yet optimistic.”

I have two tickets to give away to the performance Saturday November 6th at 8:00pm as well as a $50 gift card for Sweeney’s in Yaletown. My winner and their guest will be able to enjoy Sweeney’s new fall menu before taking in the show.

      Pacific Theatre is such an interesting venue. I saw The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe there last year, and it was just such a great theatrical experience. I’d love to go see Playland.

      PT is one of the best theatres in Vancouver. I’ve never been disappointed in a production and i am always amazed at what they can do in that little space. I’d love to see this play!
