The Arts Club Theater of Vancouver lineup will have a Peninsula flavour this season. They’ve chosen North Saanich author M.A.C. Farrant’s My Turquoise Years as part of its 2012-2013 season.
Just a year away from the golden anniversary, the theatre group will hold 14 diverse and entertaining productions in three venues this season including the Stanley Industrial Alliance stage, the Granville Island stage, and the Revue stage.
Based on Farrant’s memoir of her 14th summer, My Turquoise Years is a comic coming-of-age story set in 1960, a time of postwar optimism, when plastic reigned and the colour turquoise was the height of chic.
Farrant, raised by Aunt Elsie in sleepy Cordova Bay, grew up hearing tales of her glamorous, globe-trotting mother, Nancy.
Just as Farrant is blossoming into womanhood, Nancy suddenly announces a visit to Canada, throwing everyone into a tizzy.
My Turquoise Years will debut at Granville Island April 4 to May 4.
