et ready for an intimate view of modern human relations when the
University of the Fraser Valley Theatre department mounts its
second performance of the 2017/18 Season of Theatre this
February. Intimacy is a “bare it all” play that explores
the relationship between intimacy, orientation, sexuality, and
from the curiosity of one inspired student, Intimacy will
present authentic stories and conversations that investigate
what intimacy is, how humans relate to each other physically and
emotionally, and how relationships shape our identity.
Intimacy is verbatim theatre, a form of documentary theatre
which is based on the spoken words of real people.
This half-hour performance,
written and directed by upper-level student Des Hale, is a deep
and genuine look at the black, the white, and the various shades
of grey of real experiences of intimacy.
Intimacy runs Feb 7–9, with performances Feb 7 & 8 at
4:30 pm and Feb 9 at 1 pm & 4:30 pm. Performance dates and times
can be found at
All performances of Intimacy are
“pay-what-you-can,” cash only at the door. Seats can be reserved

the 2017/2018 Season of Theatre at UFV
UFV Theatre’s 2017-18 “In Transit” season celebrates the
department’s move to newly renovated facilities at the
university’s Abbotsford campus. This season offers a diverse
selection of original, classic, and contemporary plays,
featuring characters in the midst of transitions.
The season opened with The Bear, directed by upper-level student
Noel Funk, and caught audiences by surprise with its farcical
commentary on human nature, sudden change, and strong emotions
in this refreshingly fast-paced one-act play.
Next, UFV Theatre will stage Problem Child, a dark comedy by
renowned Canadian playwright George F. Walker, from March 7–17.
In this comedy, Walker straddles the line between humour,
desperation, and anger to depict a “fiercely struggling family
in a dysfunctional world.”
The season will conclude April 25-27 with public performances of
final projects from the 2017/18 directing class. Watch the
department website and social media this spring for more details
about these edgy, experimental, and environmental student works.
