…from the Artistic Director

Welcome back to the Belfry! 

I would like to extend my gratitude to every audience member who attended Serving Elizabeth—either in person at the Belfry or via live stream in your home. You brought this theatre back to life—! Welcoming you back before the performances was an incredibly emotional experience—and I thank you again for your incredible support over the past two years. 

I now have the pleasure of welcoming you to Kevin Loring’s “Trickster play” Little Red Warrior and His Lawyer. In doing so, I must also extend my gratitude to the cast and creative team—and welcome them back as well. The members of this cast and these designers were meant to begin rehearsals in September of 2020. That production was, of course, cancelled—but I am thrilled that they have all been able to return to this exciting project. 

And finally—welcome back to Kevin Loring. Many of you will remember Kevin’s beautiful and moving play Where the Blood Mixes, which began a cross-country tour at the Belfry in 2010, directed by Glynis Leyshon. Since that time, Kevin has won the Governor General’s Award for that play, appeared on the Belfry stage in our verbatim play on homelessness, Home is a Beautiful Word, written Thanks for Giving, which he directed at the Arts Club Theatre in Vancouver, and been appointed the first Artistic Director of the Indigenous Theatre at the National Arts Centre. 

This is quite the reunion of artists, audience members and volunteers—!  Thank you to each and every one of you—! 


From the Executive Director

It has been over two years since we had two back-to-back openings – and while every opening is an exciting event, each opening in these times seems an even greater reason to celebrate. We are here because of the dedication of artists who have remained resilient and hopeful throughout the pandemic.

The Belfry has been in the fortunate position of being able to fund projects that have engaged professional freelance artists. Those moments of employment for artists provided some financial support, but perhaps more than the money, the work we can provide those artists reinforces the value of their chosen career; a value assured by your love and need for art in our community.

So – here we come to the opening of our second full production of the season, one that has engaged 5 actors, a director, an assistant director, 4 designers, and 2 stage managers who each rely on the availability of show-to-show contracts for their livelihood. From all of us – thank you for supporting them and us

Have fun with this exceptional second production of our 2021-2022 Season, a world premiere brought to you by the dozens of professional freelance artists who made this show and our theatre possible.

About the Belfry

The Belfry Theatre is on the land of the Lək̓ʷəŋən People, known today as the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. The Lək̓ʷəŋən people have been keepers of this land for millennia and we offer our respect and gratitude for our uninvited presence on their territory.

These lands are within the disputed Douglas Treaties territories, treaties that were negotiated verbally, signed to blank pieces of paper by the Indigenous leaders and then had text added by the colonial government. The colonial perspective on the treaty is one of a sale of land, while the Indigenous perspective is a sharing of territory.

The Songhees are members of the Te’mexw Treaty Association seeking a modern treaty with the Crown on their rights, territory and self-government.

The Belfry Theatre is a registered Canadian charity, 11921 5549 RR0001.

The Belfry Theatre is a member of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, Destination Greater Victoria, and the Professional Arts Alliance of Greater Victoria.

About Savage Society

About Savage Society

Telling our own stories based on myth, tradition, and the contemporary Indigenous perspective, Savage Society was created in 2004 for members to produce their own stories as practising Indigenous Theatre and Film Artists. Artistic Director Kevin Loring is a member of the Nlaka’pamux Nation from the Lytton First Nation in British Columbia.

We develop work that reflects our world view, sourcing traditional stories and cosmologies and our contemporary realities as Indigenous people for both professional and community settings.

The word Savage carries a negative connotation in western society which has historically abhorred the natural state of the world, endeavouring to dominate, confine and exploit it rather than to live with or in support of it. We see Savage as meaning humanity in its natural state, humanity in nature. Savages are angry that the modern society is in fact brutal and barbarous, with a history of fiercely attacking The People as we seek to live in our natural state. Savage Society seeks to attack fiercely ignorance and preconceived notions.

Savages are strong; unafraid of the animals or elements, we recognize them as allies, relations and gifts. This is also true of urban Savages. Savages are cunning and quick to adapt to new environments, we are survivors, warriors, hunters and nurturers. Savages succeed by living in relationship with our dynamic world. In our natural state, regardless of race, wealth or status, we are equally human; we are all a part of The Savage Society.

Savage Society operates on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), S’ólh Téméxw (Stó:lō), sq̓əc̓iy̓aɁɬ təməxʷ (Katzie), Qayqayt, kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem ), Kwantlen and sc̓əwaθenaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsawwassen) Nations.

What to Expect – Live in-person attendance

British Columbia requires proof of vaccination to attend all indoor events. Proof of vaccination will be verified at the door and must be supplied by each ticket holder.

We are required by the Government to deny entry to anybody without a valid vaccination certificate.

No refunds will be given if you are denied entry.

Before you arrive, you’ll be receiving an email confirming your seat location. This email will also have a suggested arrival time. We are encouraging patrons with seats in the centre of each row to arrive earlier, and those with aisle seats to come closer to the start of the performance. If you miss your suggested arrival time, don’t worry – you’ll still be able to get your tickets and be seated.

Your email will also have a link to our digital programme and Upstage magazine.

As you come into the theatre, a volunteer will remind you to please have your proof of vaccination and matching ID ready. When you get to the Box Office, you’ll need to show these to one of the two clerks, who will then give you your tickets. If you’re part of a group, each of you will have to show your proof of vaccination & ID, and you’ll only be able to pick up your own ticket – sorry, we can’t let people pick up on behalf of others.

Once you have your ticket, we encourage you to take your seat. The theatre auditorium will be open for seating, starting one hour in advance of showtime.

You will be asked to stay masked throughout your theatre visit.

Concession will not be open during Little Red Warrior & His Lawyer, and outside food items will not be permitted in the theatre.

Our self-service water station is available for anyone who wants to fill their own water bottle; the public drinking fountain has been disabled.

When you’re ready to take your seat, you’ll show your ticket to a volunteer usher. Our ticket-takers are now equipped with touchless ticket-scanners. You’ll also find your ticket now indicates the auditorium entrance closest to your seat.

The theatre is currently seating audiences at 50% capacity. When you’ve taken your seat, you should find one seat on either side of your party has been left empty, so you don’t have to worry about sharing an armrest with someone outside your social/household bubble.

Our recently upgraded HVAC system will be providing a constant flow of fresh air into the theatre whenever we have an audience. The air will be heated as it comes in, but if you are sensitive to drafts, you may want to keep your coat on or wear a sweater.

You are welcome to use the washrooms or step outside for fresh air, but we ask that you please refrain from mingling in the lobby.

At the end of the performance, all exit doors will be opened for you. Please leave by the closest available doors, and give your fellow patrons time and space to exit without crowding.
