      SHIFT Festival 10: Passion Projects, the event’s 10th annual ode to the one-act play, boasts a new solo work by veteran Vancouver stage actor Allan Morgan (shown here).

      Called Pride, it traces his own coming of age and coming out, looking at his generation’s wider role in bringing LGBT rights to the fore, standing up to bullying and taunts with the “small acts of courage” Barack Obama once referred to. There are several other shows as the fest runs Thursday to Saturday (June 1 to 3) at the Firehall Arts Centre. And did we mention the postshow live music on the back patio each night?
