Cocktails at Pams

“Something could always go wrong…”

Pam was always the perfect hostess, until the night there were more floral arrangements than suitable vases, the divorcée no longer desired her canapé, and her guests formed charade teams in the name of cheap, competitive fun.

Cocktails at Pam’s, directed by Stephen Heatley, boasts some of Vancouver’s finest talent, including Anousha Alamian, Sebastien Archibald, Yoshie Bancroft, Georgia Beaty, Daniel Deorksen, Brent Hirose, Stefania Indelicato, Shauna Johannesen, Liz Kirkland, Maryanne Renzetti, and Joanna Williams.

Being the perfect hostess is a fine balance between pearls and gowns and knowing the difference between the maid and the cook. Pam believes she has everything under control – until the unthinkable happens. Will she hold it together? Will her brother successfully pick up the cute, young actress? Will her best friends, Sara and Virgil, actually make it through the night without a full make-out session in the middle of the party? Come check out Cocktail’s at Pam’s to find out!

“Stewart Lemoine is an original. There’s simply no one who writes like this Edmonton playwright.” – Colin McLean, CBC
