“THIS”: Canadian House of Cards Writer’s Un-Romantic Comedy Comes Home to Vancouver

“It’s the best new comedy I’ve seen in many a season……They’re us.” – The New York Observer

Kindred Entertainment, an ensemble theatre company where great plays meet fresh design ideas, is pleased to present THIS, an original play written by Vancouver raised Playwright and House of Cards Showrunner Melissa James Gibson.

THIS is a smart, sexy play with crackling humor about contemporary and complicated people.

THIS is a thrilling ride about the messiness of heading face first into middle age.

THIS rides the edge between comedic and deeply painful.

“This” may sound disconcertingly vague. But it actually evokes something that feels quite right about the characters Gibson so intelligently conjures, and their belief that their own mess is the only one that matters.” – Washington Post

Directed by Bill Dow with Barbara Pollard as his Assistant Director, THIS stars some of Canada’s most in demand actors, Loretta Walsh (When Calls the Heart), award-winning actor Benjamin Ratner (Wonder, Da Vinci’s City Hall), Zak Santiago (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, The X-Files), Brad Dryborough (Prodigal Dad, A Christmas to Remember), and Karen Holness (Make It Pop, Chicago).

THIS runs from April 28th to May 5th, 2018 at Studio 16, 1555 West 7th Ave, Vancouver.

Updated (4/11): Opening night date from April 26 to April 28
