Comments 26 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Directed by Kim Collier, this suspenseful and compelling hybrid of theatre and film is a modern allegory in which a terminally ill woman confronts the choices that brought her family privilege; and then, with great courage, takes a risk to secure their ultimate redemption. Utilizing 14 live-streaming cameras, state-of-the-art projections and film, The Full Light of Day immerses audiences in rich cinematic cityscapes, intimate inner lives, and invites them to reimagine the limitations of live theatre.

The Full Light of Day

Where: Vancouver Playhouse (600 Hamilton St, Vancouver)
When: January 7-12, 2019
Tickets: Available online now

Part theatre, part film, The Full Light of Day highlights the tough moral choices facing Canadians today and forces audiences to confront their own complicity in the systematic corruption and ethical conundrums that underline modern society. With the pacing of a thriller, the work brings the audience into the swirling world of high finance and corporate intrigue set in Canada’s urban centres.

The Full Light of Day unites an A-List cast and production team that includes some of Canada’s most luminary and award-winning talents. Award-winning film and stage actress Gabrielle Rose, who has appeared in The Sweet Hereafter, Maudie, and the recent TIFF film Kingsway, plays the ailing Mary. Jim Mezon, an ensemble member of the Shaw Festival since 1980, plays the corrupt patriarch, Harold.

Dean Paul Gibson, known to Vancouver audiences as a mainstay actor at Bard on the Beach, plays the arrogant (yet anxiety-prone) David–one of Mary and Harold’s sons. Genie nominee Jillian Fargey (Protection) plays the no-nonsense wife of David. Jonathon Young, star of the Olivier Award-winning Betroffenheit, plays Joey– another of Mary and Harold’s sons, whose mysterious disappearance fuels much of work’s action. Also featured in the ensemble are John Ng (Kim’s Convenience), Jenny Young (Saving Hope) among others.
