Theatre group kicks off season

NANAIMO – Western Edge Theatre opens the season with the production of Making Tracks on Friday (Sept. 25).

A Nanaimo theatre company is ready to kick off its 2015-2016 season.

On Friday (Sept. 25), Western Edge Theatre will open the season with the premiere of Making Tracks, a production about a young woman who returns to her hometown with her boyfriend.

Making Tracks is the debut play by playwright Mary Froughton, a former Vancouver Island University student.

Frank Moher, Western Edge artistic producer, says Making Tracks is a family drama wrapped inside a mystery that is worth seeing.

“I think it is one of the most extraordinary first plays I have ever read, much less had the privilege to produce,” Moher said. “Mary is an extraordinary  talent.”

In recent years Western Edge Theatre has been unable to produce a full season of shows due to a lack of financial support.

However, this season, the theatre company will be running a full season as it will stage productions of Venus in Fur and His Greatness next year.

“We have sort of got all the pieces back in place and that is why we are able to present a full season,” Moher said. “I anticipate that will be back even with an even larger season in 2016-2017.”

Making Tracks runs from Sept. 25 to Sept. 26 and again on Oct. 2 until Oct. 4 at the Harbour City Theatre, 55 Victoria Rd. For more information, including ticket prices and ticket purchases, please visit www.westernedge.org.arts@nanaimobulletin.comTwitter: @npescod
