The Grandkid is coming to Gateway Theatre

A play about a grandfather and her granddaughter will bring the Gateway Theatre 2013/14 season to a close in April.

The Grandkid by John Lazarus is a story about Abby and Julius. Abby starts university and moves in with Julius, forcing them to negotiate a new and difficult relationship as roommates. Over time, Julius learns that Abby isn’t a little girl anymore, and Abby teaches Julius that life’s second chapters can be the sweetest.

Directed by Natasha Nadir, The Grandkid stars Pippa Mackie as Abby and Richard Newman as Julius.

It runs April 10 to 26 on the MainStage. Tickets are $30 to $49. Limited tickets for the April 9 dress rehearsal are $18. Call the Gateway box office at 604-270-1812 or visit gatewaytheatre.com for tickets.
