Movin' On Up
Featuring Christopher Cook and CJ McGillivray
Staircase Theatre and CJSF Radio presents Movin’ On Up-Staged Readings. In its second year, Movin’ On Up will feature two brand new one act plays by two local, emerging (and very talented) playwrights, Christopher Cook and CJ McGillivray. Movin’ On Up-Staged Readings takes place at the CBC Studio 700 on August 22nd, 2015.
Strip, by Christopher Cook: What better occasion to stage your daughter's intervention than the night before she marries her dream... bride? In Vegas? Cassandra is determined to give her daughter, Jena, the perfect wedding - and if the whole thing's under 500 bucks, that's an added bonus. But can she keep Jena away from the, ahem, party table? And can she keep the fiancée - who just so happens to be the most successful female Elvis personator on the strip, thanks for asking - away from the mic? No matter the budget, it's bound to be a good show.
Rogue Horizon, by CJ McGillivray: A dysfunctional runaway finds herself carelessly stranded on the side of an unfamiliar road. Every passing car could mean rescue or perhaps something vile and dangerous along the highway. Her only company is an endearing but uptight sister who cannot understand why she was dragged kicking and screaming halfway across the country. What happens when push comes to shove and the sisters undoubtedly find blood on their hands?
There will also be a silent auction with some really fab prizes (over $1500 worth and counting--more info coming soon) and of course, a BAR, sponsored by Screw It! Wines and Cariboo Brewing. The evening will be hosted by a local comedian (TBD).
