Off the Page takes pride in featuring local playwrights, and we’re thrilled to announce THE CHINESE STUDENT.
THE CHINESE STUDENT is the story of three teachers with very different views of a new student at their school. The play questions our perceptions of new immigrants – even if they aren’t new immigrants. There is tension among the characters as they try to make sense of our growing multi-cultural society, and it challenges us to examine our own assumptions.
Playwright Peter Hill taught high school English in Vancouver for thirty years before teaching English Education at UBC for ten years. His doctoral thesis was on creative writing in the high school classroom. He is a songwriter, and performs in the local band Corner Table; he also played guitar with Off the Page founder David King in the duo Foolish Man. Peter has lived in Gibsons for 6 years.
Featured readers are Patrick Visser, Tara Fynn, Henry Mah, Stephanie Wong and Ginny Blattler.
