WHERE IT ALL STARTED IN VANCOUVER "I did theaterat a place called the Lunch Box Theater, which was in a converteddoughnut shop. We would do a play for an hour, and then theaudience would eat lunches that the actors actually made. Therewere no dressing rooms. There were bleachers that had been cartedin from god-knows-where and a very small stage. Some days, we wouldhave like eight people in the audience and some days we would havea full house."
