Win Tickets to Realwheels Theatre Re-Calculating

Comments 8 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Realwheels, an award-winning, disability-based professional theatre company, presents Re-calculating from Thursday, January 22nd until Saturday, January 24th at CBC Studio 700 in Vancouver. This new play by Lucas Foss and Liesl Lafferty is a one-man show featuring quadriplegic drummer Dave Symington (drummer for Spinal Cord, Bodi Rose, and co-founder of Vancouver Adapted Music Society).


Re-calculating will take you on one man’s personal journey as he navigates his way through identity and relationship struggles, a drum kit his constant companion. Directed by Jeffrey Renn, Re-calculating will give audiences a rare glimpse into the lived experience of disability. Audiences are also most likely to leave the theatre doing some ‘re-calculating’ of their own. “Able-bodied actors typically portray characters with a disability; this is a rare opportunity to experience a stage character played by a person who has lived with disability for twenty years,” says director Renn.

There will only be three performances of Re-calculating, at 8:00pm on January 22nd, January 23rd, and January 24th, 2015. Admission is by donation on the 22nd and tickets are $15 for the 23rd and 24th.

If you would like to experience this unique local show, I have a pair of tickets to give away to the performance either on January 23rd or January 24th (winner’s choice). Here’s how you can enter to win:
