Pi Theatre presents...
The Canadian premiere of Anders Lustgarten’s Lampedusa at The Annex in the heart of downtown Vancouver!
Stefano follows in the footsteps of generations of Lampedusa’s fishermen. But in the 21st century the catch is very different: the fish have disappeared, and his new job is to pull drowned bodies of migrants out of the Mediterranean. Meanwhile in the bleakest corners of the UK, Denise goes from door to door collecting payday loans, witnessing crippling hardship, and hearing violent complaints about a country being destroyed by immigration.
Written by award-winning playwright Anders Lustgarten and directed by Pi Theatre’s Richard Wolfe, Lampedusa brings us the story behind the headlines of two strangers finding hope and connection where they least expect it.
