Denise and RJ moved into Room 5 at the Suburban Motel from the small town where they were trying to clean up their drug-ravaged lives. RJ was in prison, Denise was turning tricks, and Social Services took their daughter away. Now they are back in town because the judge ruled they have met the conditions to get her back. All they need is for Helen, the social worker, to approve. Helen has been trying to call, but the phone in the room is broken and the maintenance man, Phillie Phillips, is passed out drunk. Then something really, really bad happens. Oh, yeah, it’s a comedy. Part of B. Someday’s season of “Comedies about things that aren’t funny” at Walking Fish Theatre.
B. Someday Productions brings the entire cycle of George F. Walker’s Suburban Motel to its theatre home, Walking Fish Theatre, over the course of three seasons. It began in June 2012 with the two plays Featuring Loretta and The End of Civilization, both directed by B. Someday Co-Artistic Director, Stan Heleva, and starring Co-Artistic Director, Michelle Pauls.
Last evening at Vancouver Community College (Clark campus), about 130 people celebrated the launch of the book They Called Me Number One, which is currently in second place on the BC Bestsellers list.Wednesday May 22, 2013 in Meta-Talon

Joanne Arnott interviews Wanda John-Kehewin about her new book In the Dog House:
I can’t really say there were many poets of the past that influenced my writing. I think when I really started to be inspired was when I heard that there were other Native writers, and that wasn’t until I moved to the West Coast in 1991. For some reason I didn’t think it was actually something an “Indian” could do. There weren’t any books in the library that were by First Nations people when I was growing up.
