Developed during the pandemic with support from the Canada Council for the Arts, Echo Vocal Arts Alliance and the Nelson and District Credit Union, the 55 minute drama will star Pat Henman as the Narrator along with Rachel DeShon as the Singer, while the Musician role will be shared by two accomplished pianists, Robyn Lamb from Nelson and Sue Gould of Golden, BC. Beyond the Legal Limit, with original score and songs by Calgary based composer and Musical Director, Konrad Pluta and directed by Vancouver theatre actor, director and writer, Tracey Power, has had three successful streaming opportunities including the premier in April 2021 from the Capitol Theatre in Nelson, The Charles Bailey Theatre in Trail and in September of 2021 at the Rochester Keybank Fringe Festival in Rochester, New York. The tour in the Basin is supported in part by the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance. The cast is thrilled to be performing live this spring.
