Thanks for Giving

"The set was wonderfully west coast. The strong First Nations story was great - identical problem to all families. The spirit bear was great."
—Doug, North Vancouver
"I am very familiar with First Nations issues. The play hit every one which made it feel like that was its purpose greater than as entertainment. I thought it was billed as a comedy but it was very dark, i.e. very real."
"I am impressed by the calibre of the actors and sets. Immensely enjoyable."
"The acting was great as always, and I left the show not talking about how amazing it was, but opening up discussions with my friends about what they learned from it. It was really moving. All-in-all, it was an incredibly accurate portrayal of a typical small town family. This show hit home for me, big time. I laughed and cried equally."
"Very interesting production that brought up numerous issues our world faced and is facing. I appreciate the effort to put in a little humour in such a heavy play loaded with so many issues."
—Sharon, North Vancouver
"I am in love with the work that Arts Club is doing, and have a great experience every time I come for a play. I like a versatility of topics that are being expressed through the play and a great actor performance, that make you fully absorbed into the story."
—Irene, New Westminster
