On October 7 at the Vancouver launch of Teens Gone Wired: Are You Ready? we're privileged to be previewing a segment from Green Thumb Theatre?s new play OUT IN THE OPEN. The play by Dave Deveau explores homophobia, friendship, social pressure, and navigating the complicated truths of teenage relationships. Since 1975, Green Thumb Theatre has been developing original Canadian plays for young audiences, challenging them to re-examine their beliefs and prejudices and to define their feelings and aspirations. My hero, the playwright Morris Panych, says Green Thumb is "less a theatre for young people and more a theatre for formative minds."
This will be a remarkable evening.
