Fresh off a nomination at the Herman Voaden National Playwriting Competition, Aaron Bushkowsky’s dark comedy Satellites is set to take centre stage at Performance Works this week. It’s the latest from multiple award winning theatre company Solo Collective Theatre. This play about the Vancouver housing market stars local talents Mason Temple and Sharon Crandall and is directed by award winning director Bill Dow. Interested in taking a look? Here’s what some excited audience members had to say about Aaron Bushkowsky and Solo Collective Theatre’s other hit productions.
“Simultaneously heartbreaking and beautiful.” —Vancouver Presents’ Mark Robins on the 2014 production of Small Parts
“After Jerusalem is a banquet of pleasure. A fantastic creation, [After Jerusalem] is playfully metatheatrical […] about the nakedness of truth and the uncertainty of where it will lead.” —Colin Thomas on the 2011 production of After Jerusalem for the Georgia Straight
“Vancouver playwright Aaron Bushkowsky has a real knack for splattering his Philip Marlowe plays with chuckles and even some big laughs all the while his characters are disposing of one another right before our eyes.” —Louis B. Hobson on Aaron Bushkowsky for The Calgary Herald
“As a regular theatre-goer in Vancouver, it was a thrill to watch actors delivering a literate, intelligent script by someone who knows how to write.” —Plank Magazine on The Project
“A funny, energetic, open-hearted performance […] with a nice edge. [Green Lake] is a bright light in a dark November.” —Jerry Wasserman on the 2016 production of Green Lake for the Vancouver Sun
