Spirits of Brewery Creek

A heritage walk-of-discovery, written by Vanessa Lowe, was JPP’s second play of 1991. Listeners were directed through the Brewery Creek and Mount Pleasant area of Vancouver by their cassette guide and narrator —  the ghost of a vaudeville entertainer who lived in the area during its heyday.

The ghost-guide combines history and fiction to anecdotally explain the sites and past events of the area to create for the audience the feel, mood and appreciation of what the Brewery Creek area was like when it was the original centre of Mount Pleasant. SPIRITS OF BREWERY CREEK premiered as part of the 1991 FRINGE FESTIVAL. The play continued to run, as a rental from the Western Front then as a mail order purchase, until 1995, when too many of the buildings referred to in the play were torn down .
