“Twenty Something Theatre fills an important function in Vancouver’s cultural ecology: it offers edgier scripts, including original works such as Sean Minogue’s Prodigals and, even in its name, attempts to appeal to a younger demographic. Our city needs theatrical entrepreneurs like the company’s artistic [producer] Sabrina Evertt.” –Colin Thomas, Georgia Straight
