Special callout : If you missed it yesterday, you have three more days - assuming you picked up a Pique on Thursday like you're supposed to - to catch this year's Blank Slate Theatre Festival. Done on a shoestring and an actor's burning desire to bring live theatre to Whistler, artistic director Lilli Clark is presenting two plays at the Squamish Lil'Wat Cultural Centre, Sept. 1-4.
Almost an Evening is actually a hat trick of short plays penned by Ethan Coen, an entertainingly twisted creative mind if ever there was one. Better known for the movies he writes and makes with brother Joel, Coen's work is always, well, exactly what you needed even if you didn't know you needed it.
The Big Oops is a one-woman show about a children's entertainer who unexpectedly finds herself in a pre-child dilemma: knocked up. Oops indeed.
Both shows run nightly and are cheap enough they almost define "starving actor" - $20 each or both for $35. So if you're one of those people who are always talking about boosting Whistler's arts and culture quotient, and you know who you are, it's time to walk the talk. Be entertained; be supportive.
