Three Aldergrove residents have lead roles in a theatrical thriller currently playing at White Rock’s Coast Capital Playhouse.
Earth and Sky is a poetic thriller about a would-be poet and part-time librarian named Sara McKeon (Lori Tych) whose lover, David Ames (Jason Dedrick), is found shot dead. It appears that David, owner and manager of an expensive restaurant, may have been involved in several illicit activities, including kidnapping, rape and murder.
Unable to believe that the man she gave her heart to was a killer, and outraged that Detective Weber (Ben Odberg) and Sgt. Kersnowski (Mike Busswood), seem to have closed the book on the case, Sara begins her own investigation. As she tries to find out what really happened the night of David’s death, she grows closer to her new co-worker Joyce Lazio (Kaity Busswood) and Billy Hart (Aaron Elliott), the owner of the bar David had been at that night.
When a comment leads Sara to Marie Defaria (Colleen Bignell) fingers are pointed to Carl Eisenstadt (Dale Kelly) and Julius Gatz (Andrew LeBlanc). As Sara digs deeper and deeper into the details surrounding David’s death, she becomes profoundly aware of the dangers around her.
To what lengths will Sara go to prove her lover’s innocence, and to what lengths will others go to stop her? Can you trust the one you love?
Earth And Sky runs Wednesday to Saturday, with an 8 p.m. curtain, until Feb. 26, at Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Road, White Rock. There is also a matinee on Sunday, Feb. 20, 2:30 p.m. curtain.
