SURREY — Royal Canadian Theatre Company’s season in Surrey continues next week with “Love, Sex & the I.R.S.,” a farce that focuses on two out-of-work musicians who live in a New York City apartment. Jon does his buddy Leslie’s taxes, and claims him as his wife. Laughs result when the tax man arrives, and Leslie is forced to dress as Jon’s “little woman.”
Also in the picture are a two-timing fiancée, a nosy janitor, a horrified mother, a confused girlfriend and a shady Justice of the Peace.
The play, written by Billy Vandt and Jane Millmore, hits the main stage at Surrey Arts Centre for three show times on Friday, March 18 and Saturday, March 19.
Director Ellie King originally planned to stage the play in 2006 as part of the Burr theatre season in New Westminster – “but that was not to be,” she said, and now she gets her wish, 10 years later.
The eight-person cast features Julian Legere (as Leslie), Katherine Alpen (Kate), Kurtis Maguire (Jon), Pat McDermott (Jansen), Sam Gordon (Floyd), Jane Mantle (Vivian), Elyse Raible (Connie) and Kevin Sloan (Arnold).
The play is also staged at the ACT theatre in Maple Ridge from Thursday to Saturday (March 10-12).
