Theatre Under the Gun, the annual 48-hour play creation challenge finds six Vancouver theatre companies race the clock to create an original work for the stage. The companies will receive an inspiration package and then have just 48 hours to create their original piece of theatre. In this year of physical distancing, they are facing the additional challenge of not being able to be in the same place. The audience is invited to tune in April 21 to see the inventive ways in which this year’s companies creatively overcome these unique limitations for 2020.
Producers Monster Theatre, who co-present with the Vancouver Fringe under Artistic Direction by Jeff and Ryan Gladstone, have stated that this year’s Theatre Under the Gun tickets are pay what you can via Theatre Wire, including an option for $0 tickets, to keep the event accessible to all during these trying times.
Since its beginnings over 20 years ago, many of Vancouver’s hottest theatre companies have participated, including The Electric Company, Neworld Theatre, The Virtual Stage, Hardline Productions, Contingency Plan, and many others.
The 2020 participating companies were chosen by our selection committee Chris MacGregor (Artistic Director – Axis Theatre, Founder of Theatre Under the Gun) and Tai Amy Grauman (Arts Club, Savage Society, Axis Theatre).
The one-night only event will be hosted by brothers Jeff & Ryan Gladstone.
And the companies competing in Theatre Under The Gun 2020 are:
