Do you mind if I sit here?

By James Long & Marcus Youssef

A bold new work from award-winning playwrights James Long and Marcus Youssef

Thirty years from now, three social planners visit Vancouver’s Russian Hall, long abandoned due to earthquakes and flooding, with a seemingly straightforward task: repurpose the hall for common use. But the trio soon discover the project won’t be an easy fix. An eccentric squatter, armed with a trove of Soviet industrial films on 16 mm stock, has made the damaged hall their home … and they’re not leaving.

James Long and Marcus Youssef's multimedia play Do you mind if I sit here? dares us seriously to consider the possibilities of radical transformation and to imagine a future born from our most important beliefs, fears, and hopes.
