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

Mission Statement

Multi award-winning Ruby Slippers Theatre produces provocative text-based theatre from the vanguard of the English and French Canadian canon. We further the voices of women in theatre, empowering them on and offstage, and are the only company in Vancouver whose mission includes producing the contemporary Quebecois canon in English. Our work illuminates diverse and underrepresented perspectives and social issues, inspiring independent critical thought, communion, and diversity.
