A Christmas play

During Christmas 2015 War For The Holidays delighted audiences with its tale of family drama set in WWI Vancouver. We’re taking a break this year, but plans are afoot to bring the Gregson Family back to life in the future. The play was staged at the beautiful Roedde House Museum, a fully furnished and authentic Edwardian house, situated in Vancouver’s historic West End.

The Gregsons

Three years after it began, war is still raging in Europe and our Canadian soldiers are still overseas. Two years ago it was discovered that Michael, the Gregsons’ beloved son, went missing in mysterious circumstances while fighting in France. Rumours of desertion still shroud his disappearance. Has he been found? And is he dead or alive?

Has daughter and budding Suffragette Gretchen defied her parents’ wishes and gone to study law in Montreal? And what of Chang, the Chinese Houseboy? Have his dreams of marriage and prosperity come to pass?

Where has the year taken the Gregson family and who will return to the holiday party this year? Your invitation awaits and there’s only one way to find out…
