MY FUNNY VALEN­TINE

- Entertainment · Arts · Movies · California

Writ­ten by Dave De­veau and di­rected by Cameron Macken­zie, this play looks at how one small ac­tion in a com­mu­nity can have a rip­ple ef­fect. In this case, the work was taken from the 2008 head­line story of the shoot­ing death of 15-year-old Cal­i­for­nia stu­dent Lawrence King. Star­ring An­ton Lipovet­sky play­ing a num­ber of dif­fer­ent roles, the play tries to tell the story of the im­pact of this event on a host of char­ac­ters mak­ing up a small and tightly-knit com­mu­nity. The play won the Syd­ney Risk Prize for Out­stand­ing Orig­i­nal Play by an Emerg­ing Play­wright, and was nom­i­nated for three Jessie Awards. When: Un­til Feb. 18, var­i­ous times Where: The Dance Cen­tre Tick­ets and info: From $22, the­atrewire.com
