The noted actor and director William B. Davis discusses the new Western Gold Theatre production of Homeward Bound by Elliott Hayes, which runs at the PAL Studio Theatre 06-29 October 2017, with Joseph Planta.


Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, at TheCommentary.ca.

Western Gold Theatre has its main production for the 2017 season set to open this week, Homeward Bound by the late Canadian playwright Elliott Hayes. It tells the story of the Beacham family and their weekly dinner where word games and wit are overcome by circumstance and that which afflicts family relations. William B. Davis is the guest director of this show, and he joins me now to tell us about Homeward Bound and the cast assembled. We reflect too on Western Gold Theatre, and the work Mr. Davis continues in the theatre as well as in film and television. He’s shooting a new series of episodes of The X-Files, and continues directing, having done a production of An Inspector Calls last year here in Vancouver. This production runs 06-29 October 2017 at the PAL Studio Theatre. Visit www.westerngoldtheatre.org for tickets and information. William Davis was first on this show in 2011 when his memoir Where There’s Smoke… Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man was published. He joined me from here in Vancouver earlier this week. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, William B. Davis; Mr. Davis, good morning.
