As a group of dedicated artists, our professional theatre company strives to increase, both socially and economically, the ever-growing interest for the arts in Vancouver. Producing raw, contemporary theatre and bringing classical text to a more relevant, modernized world, we seek to present fresh, exciting works to a new audience; one that is eager to consume intimate, thought provoking stories.


Currently one of the most progressive, culturally diverse cities in the world, Vancouver has the potential to also lead in performance arts . With an already booming television and film industry, the amount of professional, highly-trained artists has grown exponentially. To help expand on our enriched arts and culture of the city we can band together to create a more vibrant network of qualified, performance arts groups. VPTS plans on being at the forefront of this artistic movement.

Vagrant Players Theatre Society is a registered non-profit society.

"With an insatiable thirst to connect to provocative material, people are returning to the most visceral form of entertainment...live theatre."

-Cody Kearsley, Founder and Artistic Director



By Adam Rapp

Escaping their lives in Manhattan, former college buddies Matt and Davis take off to the Netherlands and find themselves thrown into a bizarre love triangle with a beautiful young prostitute named Christina. But the romance they encounter in Europe is eventually overshadowed by the truth they discover at home. Written with an unflinching poetic beauty, Red Light Winter is a play of sexual intrigue that explores the myriad and misguided ways we seek to fill the empty spaces inside.
