As the largest theatre in Western Canada, the Arts Club Theatre Company has attracted millions of people to celebrate artistic talent during its impressive fifty-year history. An integral part of Vancouver's theatre scene and Canadian theatre history, the company helped launch the careers of many Canadian talents and introduced the city to tremendous playwrights such as Carol Bolt and Michel Tremblay. This anthology celebrates that history by collecting six of the most unique and cherished plays that have premiered at the Arts Club Theatre over the past five decades.
