Live On The Drive: Theatre In The Raw Takes Big, Raw Step

I had a chance to sit down with the Artistic Director of East Vancouver's Theatre In The Raw, Jay Hamburger and Serge Saika, one of the cast of its "2008 Rolling Stock Prairie Theatre" troupe, which heads out late in May for parts East with three original one-act plays (two of which were written by Hamburger and Downtown Eastside playwright Patrick Foley.
Our conversation concerned the plays' issues around encroachment, the environment, and aging.

The cast members, which also include zi paris, Maria Lakes, Roger Howie and Michelle Richard will all play various roles in the different plays and Richard starts each evening with a selection of traditional French-Canadian, jazz, and original songs, in both French and English.

Some folks may not realize that Hamburger is a bit of a living legend, having written lyrics for the legendary Broadway musical, Godspell. As this interview shows, Jay Hamburger is truly a Commercial Drive original!



The tour launches in Vancouver at the PAL Lodge Theatre, 581 Cardero St. on May 20 (Preview), 21, 23, 24.
