1995 - 1996 Season

Hertoica 2Herotica 2

Garnering much critical and popular acclaim, this production subsequently toured to Toronto's Theatre Passe Muraille, and ran for three sold-out weeks at The Station Street Arts Centre in Vancouver. In 1995 we created a sequel, Herotica2, which toured to One Yellow Rabbits' High Performance Rodeo in Calgary in 1996 after a successful run in Vancouver. Other highlights from that season included Coyote Ugly by Lynn Siefert for which Allan Morgan won the Jessie for Best Supporting Actor.

Acts of Passion

Our other ongoing series is Acts Of Passion, an annual reading series of Quebecois plays produced with Pink Ink Theatre and Theatre La Seizieme. Also initiated in 1994, Acts Of Passion has exposed Vancouver audiences to some of Quebecs' most exciting theatre work, with special guest artists being flown out for workshops and lectures during the week-long event. Some of these leading Canadian artists include playwrights Normand Chaurette and Abla Faroud, translator Shelley Tepperman, French Canadian theatre expert and teacher Paul LeFebvre and internationally acclaimed writer/performer Pol Pelletier. Acts Of Passion not only offers Vancouver audiences the opportunity to experience Quebecs unique theatrical voice, it also affords those artists the opportunity to share and disseminate their work to fresh ears and minds This creates interest and dialogue, thus providing a link between the two cultures.

Mission Statement

Multi-award winning Ruby Slippers Theatre produces provocative text-based theatre from the vanguard of the English and French Canadian canon. We are the only company in Vancouver mandated to producing the contemporary Quebecois canon in English, and have been doing so since 1990. Our work illuminates diverse perspectives and social issues, inspiring independent critical thought, communion, and diversity.
