  1. hapax theatre is a small organization. We run all administration/producing/etc. with just 2 people and we rely heavily on the support of Victoria audiences and artists to keep us going. Currently our entire revenue stream (the only way we can produce theatre) is through ticket sales, which means we are concerned about how we move forward. Our mandate is to provide opportunities to emerging Victoria-based artists and recently had built the teams for our entire season with extremely talented, enthusiastic young artists and we stand beside the commitment that we made to them. So, really, what's keeping us going is that promise. We know that when we are able to be together again, when we can celebrate our closeness and resilience as a community, we will fulfill the promise that we made to these artists and our community. Even though we have taken on an incredibly challenging season, especially for a young company, we were and are adamant that by announcing our season we promised to be here. We promised to present these beautiful works utilizing and showcasing the talented designers, stage managers, and directors that have generously offered to share their work with us. Which is all a very long-winded way of saying that what keeps us going and keeps us hopeful is the trust that these young artists have put in us. We have to keep going and we have to keep hopeful for them. https://hapaxtheatre.com

    hapax theatre’s 2020 season begins with the world-premiere of Castle On The Farm by Alaina Baskerville-Bridges. It’s the first year of high school and 14-year-old Layla planned to crush it in the best-friend and boyfriend department. But then her dad is arrested and charged with attempted murder, leaving Layla struggling with a tidal wave of emotions. At home, her older sister Amber Ray fights with her mom about everything. To find refuge, Layla holes up in her room with her most prized possessions: her Christine Sinclair poster, a Demi Lovato album, and the book, The Four Agreements. With these supports in her grip, Layla is able to explore her pain and maybe, just maybe, find healing in the process. Winner of Theatre BC’s best one act play of 2019.
