2021/22 Productions

In the 2021/22 season, the UBC Players Club delighted audiences with their outstanding productions, and they expressed their gratitude to all those who supported them with their talent, time, and dedication. Kicking off their first in-person show since Festival Dionysia 2020, from November 16th to 20th, 2021, they presented the dynamic and meta-theatrical masterpiece, Six Characters In Search of An Author, adapted by Steve Moulds, which showcased their exceptional skills. Four months later, they continued their success by presenting the much-awaited Festival Dionysia, held in person for the first time since the UBC campus shut down in 2020.

UBC Players Club presents Festival Dionysia 2022, March 9-12

From March 9 to 12, 2022, the UBC Players Club broke their hiatus of in-person productions due to COVID-19 with Festival Dionysia 2022. The festival showcased six original one-act plays, all written and performed by UBC Players Club members. One of the interesting highlights was the introduction of the magical phoenix, whose story explored the intricate world of ancient Greek mythology. This addition marked the first reference to Greek culture in the history of the festival, adding a new dimension to the already diverse plays.

November 16–20, 2021 – Six Characters In Search Of An Author, adapted by Steve Moulds

Six Characters in Search of an Author

The UBC Players Club returned to in-person productions after a COVID-19 break with a dynamic and meta-theatrical play called Six Characters In Search of An Author adapted by Steve Moulds. The play features six fictional characters who interrupt a rehearsal and demand to be brought to life by a new author, leading to a collision between their existential agenda and the lighthearted ambitions of the theatre artists. This adaptation of Luigi Pirandello’s absurdist classic explores the contrast between melodrama and contemporary sensibilities, while challenging the audience’s perception of reality.
