Celebrating our 5th year of production, Twenty-Something Theatre has featured some of the city’s best up-and-coming artists in such highly acclaimed works as This Is Our Youth by Kenneth Lonergan, The Shape of Things by Neil Labute, The Fever by Wallace Shawn, Suburbia by Eric Bogosian and last summer’s sold-out production of Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love by Canadian playwright Brad Fraser.

This year Twenty-Something Theatre is pleased to present the Vancouver premiere of Blue Surge by acclaimed American playwright Rebeccan Gilman running from August 24th - September 5th, 2010 at Studio 16.

Auditions for this production will be held:

Blue Surge tells the story of Curt, a small-town cop and Sandy, the 18-year old prostitute he meets in a raid on a massage parlour.
