Last week we announced our 2019/2020 season at our Launch Party, featuring DJ Softieshan. This year brings exciting collaborations with PuSh Festival and Zee Zee Theatre, as well as productions by international queer artists like d’bi young anitafrika! Check out our Artistic Director’s vision for this year as well as our full listing of shows below:
A Message from Artistic Director Fay Nass
We live in challenging times, charged with extreme polarities. In such a sensitive moment, when conservatism is on the rise and gaining power around the world, our responsibility is to find stronger connections within our communities, to create space for dialogue, and to encourage empathy. Theatre has always done this: it’s a place of gathering and reflection. While our job is to push boundaries, to challenge the status quo and shift paradigms, our job is also to shine light on what connects us and brings us closer. Our 2019/2020 programming reflects my long-term goal of bringing stories onstage that offer new perspectives and reduce the gap of misunderstanding through authentic presentation of stories that are not often told.
On October 22nd, join the Frank Theatre for wine, cheese, and tunes by DJ Softieshan as we celebrate the launch of our 2019-2020 Season! We’ll also be raffling fabulous prizes from The Cultch, Womyns’ Ware, Your Open Closet, Big Bro’s Barbershop and SmartyPantz Vancouver Escape Rooms. Come have a queer ole’ time

The Frank Theatre and Zee Zee Theatre are seeking a trans-spectrum actor for the role of Sandra in their upcoming production of the play Trans Scripts: Part 1, The Women at the Firehall Arts Centre. We want to see what you have. Trans-spectrum applicants of all accents, body-shapes, ancestries, colours, and/or levels of experience are strongly encouraged to apply. We are rehearsing and performing in Vancouver, BC Canada, so you need to be able to make it here, and to legally work in Canada.
The Frank was overjoyed to learn that our 2018 production of Camera Obscura at the Queer Arts Festival was nominated for seven Jessies, and won two awards! Camera Obscura was the most technologically ambitious show the Frank has produced, bringing together queer artists from across Canada and incorporating an innovative video design by Sammy Chien, assisted by Kanon Hewitt.
