Back in 2014, Vertigo Theatre produced the world premiere of Raymond Chandler’s Farewell, My Lovely by Aaron Bushkowsky. Vertigo Theatre was so pleased with that production that they commissioned Bushkowsky to write Chandler’s The Big Sleep for the stage. The production brings back Graham Percy as Phillip Marlowe and Stephen Hair as Detective Nulty. Combined with some cutting edge projection design by Jamie Nesbitt (which I can’t really judge, as Vertigo had projection problems on opening night), the production mixes Chandler’s rambling, nonsensical plot with a talented cast and snappy dialogue.

About a year ago, Northern Light Theatre in Edmonton produced The Good Bride, starring Arielle Rombough and it won a Sterling Award for Outstanding New Play. Rombough fell in love hard with the play and decided that she really wanted it to happen again. She approached social media to maybe get some funding for the project and had some friends who wanted to support her. Rombough approached Handsome Alice Theatre, and The Good Bride opens tonight at the Motel Theatre in Arts Commons.

I feel like words alone won’t do justice to how much adoration and respect I have for these ladies – and how much I love their styles! – so I’m really grateful for the fact that I take pictures and hopefully I was able to capture at least some of the awesome fun that I had with these two stylish beauties!
