After Hours: Winter is coming, and so are these fun shows and events in Vancouver

'Tis the season for dark comedy productions and crafty holiday markets

Disaster Artist

Talking frogs, wrecked police cruisers and public nudity probably don’t scream climate crisis to you. But Hurricane Mona, a new absurdist dark comedy written by Vancouverite Pippa Mackie, is no regular production. The play, presented by Touchstone Theatre and Ruby Slippers Theatre, serves up intergenerational conflict and climate catastrophe in an unexpectedly hilarious package. On November 18 to December 3 at the East Van Cultural Centre’s Historic Theatre.

Christmas Countdown

Holiday season is somehow creeping up on us: time to get your gifting on before the panic sets in. The annual Got Craft holiday market features nearly 100 makers (plus a mini makers area with vendors under 16 years old—30 Under 30 material, if you ask us). This is where to get that small-batch artisanal chutney your mother-in-law is obsessed with. Admission is $5. November 18 and 19 at the Croatian Cultural Centre.
