Nelson Wong Stars in Falling in Time
The Fishies are on a mini-hiatus until the New Year, but on Sunday, three of us caught the matinee performance of Falling in Time, C.E Gatchalian’s new play starring fellow Fishie Nelson Wong. The play is a powerful portrayal of the hidden traumas of the “forgotten war.” Top-notch performances from the entire cast and in case you think we’re just a little bit biased, The Vancouver Sun‘s Peter Birnie calls Nelson “a gifted Chinese-Canadian actor whose strengths are so considerable that they give Falling in Time its true heart.” Catch Falling in Time before it’s too late!
Warning: Nudity, sexuality and mature themes. Minimum age: 16 years.
FALLING IN TIME
The world premiere of a new play by C.E. Gatchalian, featuring Allan Morgan, Manami Hara, Kevin Kraussler and Nelson Wong
Epic in its scope, raw in its emotionalism and bold in its theatricality, Falling in Time is set in Vancouver in 1994 and 1950s Korea, and tells the story of four individuals, across two continents and over a span of more than forty years. The lives of these characters miraculously intertwine in Vancouver playwright C.E. Gatchalian’s uncompromising meditation on war, masculinity, sexuality, personal boundaries, and love. Falling in Time asks the question, how do we let go?
