THE SHIPMENT


Wednesday, October 9 - Saturday, October 12, 2019

Presentation House Theatre
333 Chesterfield Avenue, Vancouver BC


A SpeakEasy Theatre Production

Biting satire at its very best, The Shipment is a subversive modern minstrel show about Black identity meant to wake the world to the ridiculous narratives in dominant media. Five Black actors play a roster of characters that reads like a bad b-list of Black iconography: Video Ho, Crackhead John, Bad Cop, Standup Comedian, Drug Dealer Mama, Grandma from Heaven, and Record Company Executive, to name just a few. The brazen mash-up of these stereotypes with clichés, distortions, and brilliant sleights of hand all force us to go beyond the lampoon and shift the lens through which we perceive race in order to confront our own bias.

Vancouver Presents calls it “Bold, honest and hilarious” and Colin Thomas declared it “a surrealist collage.” Originally nominated for five Jessie Awards including Omari Newton’s Best Actor win.\

Limited number of half-price tickets available. Once we are sold out please visit phtheatre.org for regular priced tickets.
