World War II has ended, and the inhabitants of Vancouver are recovering and reorganizing. In film noir style, Helen Lawrence combines theatre, live film, art, and computer-generated visuals to tell the story of a community’s power struggle that rose from the ashes of war.

To the delight of those who fell victim to ticketing website crashes last year, The Book of Mormon is back! The brainchild of South Park‘s Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez, this expectedly crude musical follows two 19-year-old Mormons as they travel to Uganda in hopes of converting the inhabitants of a small village. As one might imagine, hilarity ensues (with the help of some pretty catchy songs).
