Above The Hospital - Presented by Midtwenties Theatre Society & Red Gate Arts Society
(WARNING: This play contains strong language, depicted alcohol & drug-use, sexual content, non-toxic smoke effects, and a brief scene of violence. Viewer discretion is ADVISED for those under the age of 19.)


Newly formed Vancouver theatre company Midtwenties Theatre Society, along with Red Gate Arts Society, is thrilled to present the world premiere of their first original theatre production, Above the Hospital, from Friday, January 12 to Sunday, January 21, 2018 at the Red Gate Revue Stage.

In 2018 Trudeau-era, two lower-class Vancouver Millennials  the rational nursing student, Lauren, and her older, aspiring, musician-boyfriend, Cameron  live together in an overly priced, tiny apartment above a hospital. One night, a poor experience at a restaurant forces them to come back to their dingy abode earlier than expected. A casual evening of sex, pot and talk turns into a casual night of drinking, arguing, and reminiscing about the past, until unexpected guests arrive at their door and disrupt their stable existence, forcing them to re-examine themselves in the face of an unknown future.

Written and directed by Midtwenties Theatres Beau Han Bridge, Above the Hospital features performances by Tristan Smith (Posh) as Cameron, Zack Currie (This Is Our Youth) as Bo, Nadya Debogorski (A Game of You) as Abbey, Aaron Paul Stewart (The Flick) as Michael and debut performances from emerging artists Mira Maschmeyer as Lauren, and Emma Young as Natasha. Above the Hospital is Beaus first original theatre production.

I am beyond excited to debut this first-ever world premiere of Above the Hospital for Midtwenties Theatre Society, says Beau Han Bridge, who has penned and directed the production. Being a non-profit with the intention of creating theatre about millennials and coming-of-age themes, this original piece serves as a perfect chronicle of thoughts and societal challenges that one faces under the guise of no direction. There comes a time in your mid-twenties when the roads become nonlinear and one must make a decision as to where to go, forcing us to look back on our mistakes and plan out a future in a world that is beyond our control  the conflict that arises from this moment in time is where the drama is born, and what will be presented to audiences.
