Cast and crew look forward to presenting SOAP’s production of this dysfunctional comedy dealing with love, death and dependencies… but most of all, about family and the influence family has on all of our lives.
Set in her once-charming East Vancouver home, we encounter a peculiar relationship between Denny and her “fur-son” Jack, a very senior Jack Russell Terrier. Denny’s siblings, Mike and Fanny, each carry their own baggage; and after meeting their mother, Dolly, we realize the apples have not fallen far from the tree. Mike’s long-time friend, Chuck, shows up for Dolly’s birthday party because…. well let’s just say it’s not to visit with Mike. Rounding out the family tree is Fanny’s son Danno. Although we can hardly blame Danno for having run away, it seems he really was “lucky to be born into this family.”
Vancouver playwright, Susinn McFarlen’s, Since You Left Us is definitely a comedy, farcical in parts, dark at times and touching at others; it promises to be be an entertaining evening for anyone with a family, good or bad!
