Espresso - Theatre Club Meetup

Espresso at Pacific Theatre

Tickets can be purchased by phoning[masked]-5518. **Please tell them you're purchasing with our meetup group! They will try to sit us together as best they can, depending on seat availability.**

We'll watch the show together, and following that have a discussion in the lobby around the themes, questions and issues brought up by the play. Discussion guides, refreshments, coffee and tea will be provided by Pacific Theatre.

Show Info:

Espresso by Lucia Frangione.

Three fiery women – Vito’s estranged daughter, his pit-bull of a second wife, and the family’s wrinkled matriarch – find humour and grace in the aftermath of a violent car crash that threatens to take from them the one man they all love. “The espresso – she’s life. Quick, black, bitter in the mouth. Don’t expect sweet.” Pacific Theatre’s most acclaimed original creation.

Directed by Sarah Rodgers
Featuring Lucia Frangione and Robert Salvadore

“One of the best scripts ever produced by a Vancouver playwright. And you know what? The show is really funny too.” Colin Thomas, The Georgia Straight

    I have a hearing loss and tinnitus. I called the theatre yesterday, and was informed that they do not have a hearing assist system. My hearing aids cannot compensate for a large room when my tinnitus noises (six) are loud, as they are today. I have decided to cancel my attendance. With regret.

      I'm so sorry that you weren't able to attend. You're right, unfortunately the theatre does not have a hearing assist system. Thanks for letting us know and I'll pass on this feedback to the theatre.

    Thanks all! It sounds like it was a great discussion. Yes, Sari - a chance to meet each other would be a great idea. I'll think about how we can accommodate that in the future. Big thanks again for coming out and to Pippa for hosting.

    Wonderful play and interesting discussion afterwards. I also enjoyed meeting the actors and would have appreciated hearing more from the playwright. Thanks for coordinating this event.

    didn't really get to meet the others of our group at the discussion.
    perhaps that should have been arranged?
