World Premiere Acclaimed visual artist Stan Douglas and screenwriter Chris Haddock (Da Vinci’s Inquest, Boardwalk Empire) bring you an intoxicating mixed-media spectacle set in the Vancouver of 1948.

Visit the vanished worlds of the old Hotel Vancouver and Hogan’s Alley — the city’s hot spot for gambling and vice.

Helen Lawrence is an intriguing, hard-boiled tale of loyalty and money that illuminates our city’s politics during a time of historic upheaval. https://artsclub.com/shows/2013-2014/helen-lawrence

--> On Saturday, February 15, the Arts Club celebrates Hogan’s Alley with family-friendly stories and songs.

    Hello Elena - Glad you want to join me at this show! I suppose we should start talking about a date. I'm away at the end of March, so was hoping to go somewhere in early April (between the 4th and the 13th). Are you available any time then?
