Last Thursday, August 1, Ceilis Irish Pub held the celebration of the Fringe Festival’s Dear Life ticket sales launch at a pirate themed fundraising event, Party for Dear Life. Dear Life is a part of the Fringe Onsite Program in the 2013 Vancouver Fringe Festival produced by The Seicho Sisters, written by Sophia Woodward and directed by Sachi Lovatt.
Both Woodward and Lovatt are co-producers and Charlotte Newman is Stage manager of Dear Life, which will be playing on Granville Island from September 5 to 15.
Two sisters trapped in the realm between life and death battle a fearful darkness that holds them there. Will they take grasp of the life they let slip through their fingers, or be ferried prematurely to their death – or worse, be condemned to limbo for eternity? Sibling angst and sword fights ensue.
September 5 to 15, 2013 at 8 p.m. at the Granville Island kid’s waterpark. Prepare to be on your feet.
The Seicho Sisters is a theatre production company founded in 2013 by Sophia Woodward and Sachi Lovatt. “Seicho” means growth. We are all about personal growth and development!

To celebrate the launch of Dear Life ticket sales, and to raise money for the production, a pirate themed party/fundraiser took place at Ceilis Irish Pub and was hosted by Mariam Riad’s Holy Moly Events. The event included performances by Sons of Granville and the Carnival Band, and sword fighting by Acadamie Duello.
