THIS FRIDAY – Interpreted Performance: Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson:

“Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson”


Friday November 10, 2017 – Special ASL (American Sign Language) Interpreted Performance for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Audience Members

Where: Performance Works (1218 Cartwright Street), Granville Island

Tickets: Link 

Performance Summary:

Follow America’s seventh president from his early days as a child on the wild frontier to his controversial reign in the White House. With the country divided into rich and poor (and with continued skirmishes with the Native Americans upsetting pieces of the world), Jackson begins his steady climb from military strategist to populist rabble-rouser to President of the United States. Is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect him? What if he’s really, really hot? A raucous blend of outrageous comedy, anarchic theatricality and infectious rock music!

Note: Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson has crude language, sexual situations and violence. It’s not recommended for audiences under the age of 14.

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson stars Martha Ansfield-Scrase, Daniel Berube, Thomas Chan,  David De Leon, Kailea De Leon, Louis Desfosses, Karliana DeWolff, Chelsea Huang, Max Kim, Chris Roskelley, Annastasia Unger. Directed by Ben Bilodeau. Music direction by Thomas King. Choreography by Erin Michell. Set Design by Nikolay Kuchin & Sarah Sako. Lighting Design by Michael K. Hewitt.

Sign Language Interpreted Performance: UVic

UVic’s Department of Theatre presents a special performance with Sign Language Interpretation for:

The Madwoman of Chaillot 
Written by Jean Giraudoux, adapted by Maurice Valency
Directed by Conrad Alexandrowicz

Sign Language Interpretation with Deaf Interpreter Nigel Howard and Hearing Interpreters Mary Butterfield and Keith Brougham

Date: Saturday November 18, 2017
Time: 2:00pm.


Welcome to the neighbourhood of Chaillot and the whimsical world of Countess Aurelia, a flamboyant holdover from a less cynical time. She shares her joie de vivre and cryptic wisdom with everyone she encounters — until corrupt businessmen discover oil beneath Paris!  With everything she holds dear suddenly under threat, the Countess unites with a rag-tag group of local artists, vagabonds, and dreamers to fight back. This poetic and comic fable of good and evil was written in 1943 during the Nazi occupation of Paris, but the play has developed a whole new relevance in our current era of pipelines and protests.

(Recommended for ages 13+)
