Little Mountain Lion Productions

Little Mountain Lion Productions is a not-for-profit organization made of writers, directors, actors and designers who produce Theatre in Vancouver, BC. Our mandate is to produce plays exploring the overlap between film and literature, while also fostering the development of youth and emerging artists in all aspects of production. Our mission is to incite dialogue between mediums, to encourage movie fans, book fans, and typical non-theatregoers to experience live Theatre. We believe that by involving young artists and audiences in this process, we can create a lasting and continued growth in the Vancouver Theatre community. We invite fans of all forms of storytelling and of all ages to consider the importance of how and why people tell stories, and to experience the thrill of a good story performed live.
Our last play was Anne Washburn’s Mr Burns, a post-electric play, which ran at Studio 1398 on Granville Island April 3-21st 2018. Prior to that we ran two plays at Havana Theatre: Kurt Vonnegut’s The Euphio Question as part of the 2017 Vancouver Fringe Fest, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s holiday thriller The Mystery Plays. The haunting ensemble piece, presented in two inter-related one-acts, featured themes of fate, death and forgiveness. Not your typical Christmas Carol…
Before that was Vancouver Fringe 2016’s The Antagonist, a hilarious, biting satire by Vancouver’s Daniel Galiano about a day in the life of a comic book supervillain. The play was a cult favourite, to fan and critic alike, and was featured on the cover of The Georgia Straight.
And before that – Vancouver Fringe 2015’s Love is for Superbeasts by Mily Mumford, and 2014’s Slaughterhouse-Five by Eric Simonson, based on the timeless novel by acclaimed author, Kurt Vonnegut, adapted for the stage by the Academy-Award® winning author Simonson. The show had a sold-out run during November 2014 at Studio 1398 on Granville Island.
Other notable productions include Kurt Vonnegut’s The Euphio Question, A Behanding in Spokane by Martin McDonagh, LML’s Short Play Showcase. To find out more about these productions, click here.
