Two New Westminster residents will be front and centre when Stage 43 returns to the stage with a "slightly naughty" romp.

The Tri-Cities based Stage 43 Theatrical Society has announced the second show in its 2022 season: Skin Flick, written by Canadian playwright Norm Foster and directed by Aaron Davis. It's onstage April 28 to May 7 at the Evergreen Cultural Centre.

"Don’t let the title fool you! At the core of this hilarious (only slightly naughty) romp is a heartwarming story about relationships, resilience and rediscovery," says a press release about the show.

The comedy tells the tale of middle-aged couple Daphne and Rollie and their friend Alex, who have found themselves out of work and out of luck. When they come across a mistakenly rented X-rated movie, they get the idea to make their own porno film for some quick cash.

But there's a catch: None of them want to star in it.

As if on cue, Jill, a birthday telegram messenger, accidentally arrives on their doorstep – and their cast is set.

The production features New Westminster residents John Cousins as Rollie and Caitlin Stanley as Jill, along with Michelle Berg as Daphne, Richard Wiens as Alex, and Aodhan McDonald as Byron.

Evergreen Cultural Centre is at 1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam, next to the Lafarge Lake-Douglas SkyTrain station.

Skin Flick is on Thursday, April 28 through Saturday, April 30 at 8 p.m. nightly; Sunday, May 1 at 3 p.m.; and Wednesday, May 4 through Saturday, May 7 at 8 p.m. nightly.

Tickets are $25 regular, or $22 for seniors and students. You can buy online or call the Evergreen Cultural Centre’s box office at 604-927-6555.

There's special two-for-one pricing on single adult tickets on Wednesday, May 4. Use the discount code COMEDY.
