Twenty Something Theatre is a Vancouver based award-winning, independent theatre company dedicated to producing contemporary theatre that is provocative, edgy and relevant.
We are committed to providing Vancouver’s next generation of emerging artists and young professionals with opportunities to hone their craft and we strive to enhance Vancouver’s theatre community with productions that entertain and evoke the lives of today’s young people.
About to enter into our 8th season, Twenty Something Theatre has featured some of the city’s best up-and-coming artists in such highly acclaimed works as Tough! by George F. 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
