Almost Live | Night Passing

Wednesday August 4, 2021 at 6:30 pm Pacific Time via Zoom

We hope you can join us for this special presentation of Night Passing in partnership with the Arts Club Theatre Company.

Ottawa, 1958. A young man moves from a rural town to the big city, hoping to reckon with his emerging sexuality—and comes face to face with the horrific, oppressive acts against the queer population there. Night Passing is inspired by the true stories of LGBTQ+ Canadians who endured brutal harassment at the hands of their own government, and the vital resistance that followed.

The playwright, Scott Button, will join us for conversation and Q and A with Amy.

Night Passing is part of Listen to This, an audio play series from the Arts Club that features entertaining, thought-provoking works created by Western Canadian playwrights who are affiliated with the company’s Emerging Playwrights’ Unit or Silver Commissions Project. VocalEye will feature the remaining shows in the series as they become available.

The VocalEye virtual lobby opens at 6:30 pm Pacific Time for some socializing and community updates with host Amy Amantea. The pre-show introduction will begin at 6:45 pm with Amy and Scott. The show begins at 7 pm with a running time of approximately 2 hours minutes, followed by conversation, Q and A and a prize draw.
