Walker, Nocturne by Adam Rapp, Blue Surge by Rebecca Gilman, Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love by Brad Fraser, Suburbia by Eric Bogosian, The Fever by Wallace Shawn, The Shape of Things by Neil Labute and This Is Our Youth by Kenneth Lonergan. In 2011 Twenty Something Theatre presented the critically acclaimed World Premiere of Prodigals, a new play by Vancouver playwright Sean Minogue, as the company’s first original production.
Most recently The Bomb-itty of Errors by Jordan Allen-Dutton, et al – a co-production with Temporary Thing – was nominated for 4 Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards including Outstanding Production & Outstanding Direction and won for Outstanding Costume Design & Significant Artistic Achievement – Outstanding Ensemble Performance with Music & Live DJ.
“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
