On Thursday, May 10, C.E. (Chris) Gatchalian launches his book Falling in Time (Scirocco Drama) in Vancouver, beginning with an event presented by UBC’s Robson Reading Series. 

Gatchalian, an Artistic Producer at Screaming Weenie Productions, will read from his newly published book – a play that stunned Vancouver theatre audiences when it premiered in November 2011. He will also read from his previous book, Crossing & Other Plays (Lethe Press), and excerpts from “Notes Towards an Essay About Maria Callas,” which has been included in Best Canadian Essays 2011 (Tightrope Books). A Q&A will follow the reading, held from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lillooet Room (301) in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.

Born, raised and based in Vancouver, Gatchalian writes drama, poetry, fiction and non-fiction. He is the author of four books of drama and one book of poetry. His plays, which include Broken, Crossing, Claire and Motifs & Repetitions & Other Plays, have appeared on stages nationally and internationally, as well as on radio and television. Gatchalian was the recipient of the Gordon Armstrong Playwright’s Rent Award in 2005 and was a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award in 2003.
