#CdnCult Times; Volume 4, Edition 7


PuSh plots a move to less-cramped quarters in 2015.

Welcome to 2015. After many years of ‘snopesed’ FB posts exposing hoax images implying this is the year of the hoverboard from Back to The Future, we can finally revel in incredulity. We have arrived at an era that will unsurprisingly not meet the collective expectations shaped by 1980s Hollywood films.

But there is good news: There are many new and exciting developments in Canadian theatre that did not involve Michael J Fox and this edition highlights three: Two new homes for theatrical creation in Kingston and Vancouver and a new home for indie creators in TO. The future’s so bright we’ve gotta wear shades?
