Lucas Myers opens Tiny Lights festival with an old favourite

The actor-playwright will present, East: How Far Would You Go For Love, the very first show he ever performed in Nelson.

Nelson cultural ambassador Lucas Myers is opening this weekend’s Tiny Lights festival with a blast from the past.

The actor-playwright will present, East: How Far Would You Go For Love, the very first show he ever performed in Nelson.

The show is actually three plays in one and includes We Are Going on a Journey, which condenses a Greyhound bus ride from Vancouver to Toronto into 20 minutes, The Landlord’s Daughter, a tale of love and rental SNAFU, and The Forgetful Prince, a puppet show.

The evening will also feature special guests that are performing at the festival.

See East at The Ymir Hall on June 14 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5 with a festival pass or $10 without and are available in advance at the Ymir Store.

Festival goers can also catch Myers on the School House stage from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday where he’ll perform a medley of scenes from his more recent works.
