Langley actor cast in diverse youth show

‘Home’ runs May 3-6 at Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre

When a favourite local hangout is threatened with a corporate takeover, two young First Nations female managers rally the regulars to save the place they call “home.”

In doing so, they passionately showcase the importance of their community by giving those within it a voice. Through a journey of brave disclosures, original music and transformation, they discover their individual and collective power.

Home, presented by Some Assembly Theatre Company, is a new and original Canadian production that shares a powerful vision of hope from local diverse youth in the search for a healthy home, both within oneself and one’s community. Cultural representation includes Ojibway, Chinese, Greek, French, Kurdish, Serbian, and the Kwakwaka’wakw Nation.

The show, which runs May 3-6 at Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre in Vancouver, is written and performed by youth, including Langley’s own Nicholas Roe.

Other cast members include: Sophie Elder-Labrie, Laurel Trueman, Brogan Ho, Christopher Rahim, Joe Baker, Latisha Wadhams, Elodie Doumenc, Parker Phelan, Una Spasovski, Haley Christenson and Sian Kilpatrick. They will work in collaboration with Some Assembly Theatre artists Valerie Methot, Ken Lawson, Jeremy Baxter, Anna Talbot, Athena Ivison and Allen Morrison.

Some Assembly Theatre Company is now in its 16th year of creating and producing original, collaborative plays that promote awareness, wellness, and dialogue about issues facing teens.

Audiences are invited to participate in talkback sessions after each performance.

Performances run May 3 at 1:30 p.m., May 4 at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., May 5 at 7:30 p.m. and May 6 at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is free.
