Although this is not a SOAP Theatre production, SOAP is providing financial sponsorship, on-line exposure and some use of its faciliities to support the independant production of Double D Diner, written and directed by Jim Dinwoodie of Osoyoos BC.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be part of a live theatre production? To hear the roar of a crowd as you take your much deserved bows? To feel the excitement of standing backstage before the curtain rises? To desperately hope you remember the next line?
A brief synopsis of the play is listed below. Jim is looking for two young male actors (20-30 years of age) to join his motley crew of colourful characters.
After spending over 30 years working and living in various ‘tourist towns' throughout British Columbia, local playwright Jim Dinwoodie has discovered that they all have one thing in common; the local coffee shop. These places are often the heart and soul of a town and the gathering spot for some of the community's most interesting characters. Characters who names may change from town to town but are all basically the same people. Characters who have frequently solved all sorts of problems, ranging from World Peace to what's wrong with Silly Hall. Jim has brought all these people together for one night in the “Double D Diner”. So order a large Mocha, maybe a fresh baked muffin or scone, grab a corner table and see what happens when our beloved locals (maybe someone you know or even yourself) meet the New City Guy. Will he be accepted into their community or be run out of town?
