Featuring: Pat Dorval, Julian Alphilbert, Pam Girone, Karen Webb, Jeanne Sommerfield, and Crystal Chong.
The play SRO Stars is a play that was written by five members of Vancouver’s Motivation, Power & Achievement (“MPA”) Society about their lived experience with mental health issues. MPA is a Vancouver society whose mission it is to inspire hope and support recovery for people who live with mental illness, in part by providing recreational and creative opportunities. Lenore Rowntree is a writer who volunteers with MPA and works with members in a writing workshop format. A group of MPA members wished to learn about playwriting and Lenore conceived a project for the members using documentary theatre as basis from which they could write. SRO Stars is a five-scene play, each scene written by a different MPA member, and each portrays a personal aspect of the situation in which the writer finds him or herself. The scenes are linked in their world view but not in their storylines. Each is a mini-play in itself.
