Poverty Cove Theatre Company, an innovative theatre company known for pulling off first-rate plays in atypical ways (like in bars!), are having a fabulous fundraiser party Wednesday night, at Quidi Vidi Brewery. For only $20, you can have yourself the finest Wednesday evening you could ask for.

All proceeds from the event will support PCTC’s upcoming spring production of Rabbit Rabbit, a play written by one of Canada’s most promising new voices: the award-winning Amy Lee Lavoie. Rabbit Rabbit has received rave reviews from critics across the country, and you’ve never heard this story before: it tells the story of an encounter between a pedophile birthday clown and an underage prostitute. Show casting and venue location will be announced at the fundraiser.

“The funding environment for an emerging theatre company is extremely challenging. Poverty Cove has been very fortunate in the past to have co-producers (RCAT & ACC) who were established companies with well respected leadership. As a result, we have been able to compensate our cast and crew appropriately for their talent and time. We’re holding this fundraiser so that we can continue to do so.” – Shannon Hawes

“An individual doesn’t wake up one morning a fine actor or inspired designer. It takes years of study and pursuit to acquire the level of skill we are looking to hire. We are a professional company and very serious about contributing to arts and culture in Newfoundland and Labrador, and the remuneration we offer should reflect this level of commitment. We value talent in our community and want to continue to further support its development.” – Megan Coles
