Support Rumble

Here at Rumble we’re overjoyed. We’ve just finished up the World Premiere of Indian Arm, by Hiro Kanagawa – and what a premiere it was! Critics and audiences raved about the show. In Vancouver Presents, David C. Jones wrote: “Indian Arm will sneak up on you and rip open your heart”, while Colin Thomas of the Georgia Straight said: “InIndian Arm, actress Jennifer Copping pretty much skins herself alive. Her performance is one of the most astonishing of the season.”

We ask for feedback after every performance and our audiences are asking us to create more shows like Indian Arm.  Plays with a uniquely Canadian perspective, that challenge people to think, while shaking them to their core. We’re going to make this happen and we’re writing today to ask for your help. Please join us in creating moving, intense, Canadian plays by making a donation to Rumble today.

Indian Arm, an adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s Little Eyolf, is the first play to come out of a new program for Rumble where we commission Canadian playwrights to adapt classical plays for Vancouver audiences. We are beyond excited about our next commission, A Wilderness of Tigers, an adaptation of Shakespeare’sTitus Andronicus by Governor General award winning playwright Colleen Murphy.

We’re elated about collaborating with Colleen on this project and she’s equally enthusiastic about working with us. “Rumble Theatre is an exciting company…” Colleen says, “So I was thrilled with Artistic Director Stephen Drover invited me to radically adapt Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus.” With its exploration of the brutality of war and the inescapable nature of vengeance, Titus tells a story as old as humanity and as fresh as today’s evening news. Over the next two years, we will workshop and develop A Wilderness of Tigers, before giving it its World Premiere in spring of 2017.
