FALLING IN TIME
featuring Allan Morgan, Manami Hara, Kevin Kraussler and Nelson Wong
Directed by Seán Cummings
The world premiere of a new play by C.E. Gatchalian
What the critics are saying:
"In moving from theatre of the oppressed into a 'post-gay' model, the trick for playwrights will be to craft characters whose sexuality doesn't define their character so much as add to it....With his latest work, Falling In Time, local playwright C.E. Gatchalian comes as close as anyone to reaching that goal....All three male leads offer bravura performances.... Who knows how well it will hold up, but for now, Falling In Time appears timeless." -Steven Schelling, the West Ender
"Pull-no-punches, graphic sex is what Screaming Weenie Productions does, but it's more than that. Falling in Time is, eventually, an unlikely love story....Very poignant. A full house--even on a rare, sunny Sunday afternoon in November--attests to [Falling In Time's] relevance." -Jo Ledingham, the Vancouver Courier
"Strong narrative bones and lots of muscle in the writing....A powerful play....Nelson Wong['s] strengths are so considerable...[he] not only nails--to great comic effect--the nature of a student struggling with English, but turns on a dime to offer achingly genuine emotion." Peter Birnie, the Vancouver Sun
"Beyond our roles and histories, Falling In Time seems to be saying, compassion is still possible. The characters are nicely complicated...[a]nd playwright Gatchalian leavens his thematic ambition with humour. Allan Morgan delivers an appropriately operatic but still honest performance as Steve."-Colin Thomas, the Georgia Straight
And here are just snippets of what audiences are saying:
"Left me completely speechless"
"An inspiring piece of writing"
"Allan Morgan's Steve is one of the best performances I've seen in a while"
"Very memorable...I'm still thinking about it"
