The Meal is coming to Pacific Theatre, April 11-14
Commissioned by Theatre Conspiracy and a sold-out success at Club PuSh 2011, The Meal returns for a four-day run at Pacific Theatre, April 11-14. 2012. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST CONCERTS OF 2011!
Four singers swig wine and break bread while anxiously awaiting a late guest of honour. It’s the Last Supper – in a funky, theatrical new song cycle inspired by the Gospels of John, Thomas, Judas and Mary Magdalene, and Luis Bunuel’s provocative film The Exterminating Angel. Fresh from its debut at the PuSh Festival, this encore performance features musicians from a host of Vancouver’s top indie bands.
Tickets are nearly sold out! Best availability for the 10:30pm late-night performance on Friday. Click here for tickets: The Meal Tickets
