January 31, 2013 Dinner
6pm | Merchant's Oyster Bar, 1590 Commercial Dr Performance
8pm | The Cultch, 1895 Venables
The PuSh Festival pairs a delicious three-course prix-fix meal at Merchant’s Oyster Bar with a performance of I, Malvolio on The Drive during the 2013 Dine Out Vancouver Festival! Tim Crouch re-imagines Twelfth Night through the eyes of Shakespeare’s most pent-up steward. I, Malvolio is a wild, hilarious and unsettling rant from a man ‘notoriously wronged.’ After falling victim to a forged love letter—leading to accusations of madness, a pair of ridiculous yellow stockings and ultimately no recompense for his sufferings—one of dramatic literature's most misunderstood characters will finally have his say. Part abject clown, part theatre-hating disciplinarian, Malvolio asks his audience to explore the pleasure we take in other people’s suffering. Post-show talkback with the artist included!
Please arrive at the restaurant by 5:45pm, dinner will be served at 6:00pm.
Ticket price includes three-course prix-fix meal and show ticket for one person. Drinks and gratuity extra.
