Hello Off the Page friends
We are determined to carry on with our December programming, and first up is DITTO by Vancouver playwright Melody Anderson, featuring Colleen Elson, Jeanne Sommerfield, Patrick Visser, Ivy Lock and Wanda Nowicki.
A live audience is not an option so we hope you will join us from the safety and comfort of home, on Zoom this time, at 1:00 pm on Sunday, December 6th. Melody, our playwright, will be present online for the usual talkback session, to talk about the development of this play.
So….Off the Page is inviting you to DITTO on Dec 6, 2020. We will start at 1:00 pm but you may join us as early as 12:45.

Please consider a donation, as you would if you came to the theatre, as our expenses have not gone down. Thank you so much.
About DITTO: Cat has resigned herself to a life of solitude and childlessness — that is until she meets Norm,who awakens in her a fierce desire to become a mother. When her attempts to get pregnant are thwarted by a series of unexpected pitfalls, her grandmother weighs in with a unique and surprising perspective. Set in the near future, DITTO is a wry exploration of the nature of individuality and the ramifications of unbridled reproductive technology.
Melody Anderson shifted her creative focus to play writing In2012, after thirty-five years as a mask-maker. Joining Wet Ink Collective was instrumental in facilitating thattransition. Her play, Me and You, about the relationship of two sisters over the course of a lifetime, was produced at the Arts Club Theatre, April 2018. Melody is a member of the collective that created The Number 14, which toured internationally for Axis/Touchstone, and co-wrote The Emperor’s New Threads (with Peter Anderson) which toured nationally for Axis Theatre. She is the recipient of six Jessie awards and five nominations for both design and collective creation. Her masks are used for actor-training across North America. She lives in Vancouver, B.C. with actor/playwright Peter Anderson.
Hope to ‘see’ you on December 6th!
