Ruby Slippers Theatre and Zee Zee Theatre present the North American premiere production of 5 @ 50 by Brad Fraser. When Olivia loses control at her fiftieth birthday party, her three best friends decide to intervene once and for all, much to the irritation of Olivia and her long-term partner Nora. But is she the only one battling a demon or does each of these women face an addiction of one kind or another? 5 @ 50 is a raw and darkly comedic portrayal of women in mid life. It is also a bold examination of addiction and intervention, and of the friendships we can’t live without.

May 13 – 28, 2016 at PAL studio theatre #300-581 Cardero Street, Vancouver, BC

The List, Ruby SlippersTheatre

In this moving translation of Jennifer Tremblay’s play La Liste, we experience one woman’s struggle as she fights through the memories leading to her friend’s death. A woman constantly making to-do lists so as not to forget anything, she overlooks one item that leads to a tragedy. This causes her to question: “Could I have done more?”
