Slow dancing and wild abandon are the essence of Last Night by Shaelyn Johnston. In the premiere staged production directed by CJ McGillivray, the memories become delicate and rough around the edges. Reality fades in and out of focus when a college freshmen finds herself stumbling into open arms and unfamiliar territory.
The directorial vision for Last Night is defined by a gentle, acoustic soundscape and visually dramatic multimedia projections to complement and illuminate the story as it unfolds on stage. The production was featured among a selection of short plays as part of the Sacred Space Festival at Capilano University. The incredible ensemble was lead by Lara Emily Foley and Gavin Langelo alongside Anita Topolka, Sarah Gusten, Ben Pilger, Michael Dean Henderson and Sarah Jane Fogel. The creative team was comprised of CJ McGillivray as director, Diego Arias Montoya as photographer, Alexa Houle as production manager, Luke Wawzonek as stage manager and Jocelan Jansen as set decorator.
One behalf of the cast and crew, much appreciation is extended to Blake Mattson, Sunny Mohajer, Max Morrow, Shanique Kelly and Jill Zavazal for their kind contributions to the production.
