Stories From Hogan's Alley

Hogan's Alley

Hogan’s Alley was famous for its fun, food and music. Vancouver’s African Canadian community was concentrated in this multi-cultural Strathcona neighbourhood from the 1920s until the 1970s. When the Georgia Viaduct was built through the middle of the neighbourhood, part of Vancouver’s history was lost. This lost history plays a central ‘character’ in the Arts Club’s upcoming world premiere, Helen Lawrence. Created by acclaimed visual artist Stan Douglas and screenwriter Chris Haddock (Da Vinci’s Inquest, Boardwalk Empire), Helen Lawrence is an intoxicating mixed-media spectacle set in the Vancouver of 1948. For Winterruption, the Arts Club celebrates Hogan’s Alley with stories, songs and games from the era.
