RIP Lorena Gale

I just learned that Lorena Gale, local actress and playwright extraordinaire, lost her battle with abdominal cancer at the end of June. This is a devastating loss to Vancouver's theatre and film community and what seems most unfair is how quickly the disease progressed (Lorena was only diagnosed this past February.

A memorial service is being held at Heritage Hall (3102 Main Street), from 12-2 pm on Friday, July 31st.
