Stock Characters: The Cooking Show is a hilarious, hard-hitting, campy Iron Chef (Japanese television cooking show) parody set in East Vancouver – but it’s an apocalyptic East Van of the future. Using the framework of “a hardcore cooking contest at the end of the world,” Artistic Director Elaine Carol and a cast of young people ages 15 to 26 take a raw, honest look at the challenges facing youth in the community: poverty, racism and other forms of stereotyping, gang violence, addiction, abuse.
