Hi! I’m Sally Stubbs.
I’m so glad you stopped by.
Honestly, I was beginning to think this day would never come, but here it is folks.
Right now I’m busy getting ready to produce my play–
AND BELLA SANG WITH US–in the up and coming Vancouver Fringe Festival.
The inimitable Sarah Rodgers is directing a stellar cast and creative team. You can read about them here.
This production is ridiculously important to me. The script is the result of extensive rewrites of an earlier– and very different play– Kid Gloves. The new production will be part of the Dramatic works series at the Cultch.
I’ve posted some production photos here so come have a look.

And thanks again for visiting.
I’d love to hear from you, so please leave me a note in ‘comments’ and say hello.

Hi Sally. Looking forward to the new play. Getting Sarah to direct is a guarantee of success. Plus, of course, what is bound to be a terrific script!
Jo, I just found this! How embarrassing. Well… thank you for being in touch…. 3 years ago! And, yes, getting Sarah involved is always a smart move. Sally
Nice website, Sally, and congratulations on the Fringe play!
Hey David, I just found this message and a few others. Good grief, how embarrassing. Thanks though! I hope all is well with you and yours. Sally
Sally, I saw the ad for your show when I was at the Waterfront Theatre. I’m hoping to bring my English 12 class to see the show. I don’t know if you remember me, but we taught together at UHill. Maggie
Maggie, this is really embarrassing! I just now found your message. I’m so sorry. I got rather distracted as my Mom was ill for a long time and then passed away. I simply didn’t think to look for comments or posts. Of course I remember you. You taught all Math when you were at UHill though, didn’t you? How are you now? Still teaching? Thanks for being in touch. Take care, Sally
I am a friend of Catherine Lee. I am planning one woman show in March at Granvilee Island Studio 1398. My name is Yayoi Hirano I am a artistic Director of YAYOI THEATRE MOVEMENT Society, dance and movement company. I am looking for the lighting designer and CLee let me know you recommend Kyla Gardiner. I would like to make a contact with her. Is it possible to let me know her e-mail address and telephone #?
Thank you so much for your time.
Dear Yayoi, I just found this message. I’m so sorry. I got very distracted for a while as my Mom was ill and then passed away and I didn’t realize I had any comments on this website. I hope you managed to get hold of Kyla. I haven’t been in touch with her for some time, but if you are still interested after all this time in making contact with her I will look for her contact information and be in touch. Please let me know. Again, my apologies for not getting back to you. Sally
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed And Bella Sang With Us. I thought the story and production were fabulous. I am so grateful for your hard and persistent work.
I am a born in Vancouver person and love the history that goes with our city. So I really wanted to see the play from that perspective but especially because it women and women’s issues were at the center.
I had just started reading a book called, Rise Sister Rise by Rebecca Campbell which begins with the idea that femininity and women’s intuition have been lost in many of us as we take our place in the work force. In this present day book, the author talks about how many women who want to rise up the ladder or to take on leadership must develop male characteristics – or be one of the boys. I was blown away when I found myself witnessing that exact topic and struggle between and with the two woman.
For me, I found so many layers of intrigue with the characters and situations in the play. It was good that I was with four other girl friends because we had lots to discuss afterwards.
I just wanted you to know how much your work was enjoyed and talked about and learned from.
Hello Pat, I can’t believe I just found your comment here today. Two years later! I’m so sorry, but very happy I found it. I went through a long period where my Mom was ill and then passed away and then I just got busy and forgot about the website. I didn’t even know there were any comments here. Thank you for your interest in the play and for taking the time to get in touch with me. It means a great deal to me. That script had a very difficult journey – it went up too early the first time and flopped – and I was determined to do it again and get it right. Reading this makes me feel that I may have done that. Wishing you all the best. Sally
What a special day today. Richard, Fred, my Mother and I, Marion got to see your play,”And Bella Sang with Us.” Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I wonder if you remember us? Richard had the pleasure of being your student at University Hill Secondary, and I helped run the concession stand. Remember Mid Summer Night’s Dream – Richard was Bottom. We look forward to seeing more of your plays. You are an amazing teacher and an exceptional writer. Thank you
Marion! Of course I remember you and Richard and Fred. I don’t know if I ever met you mother. How are you all? I’m so sorry that this reply took so long. I have been away from the website as my Mom was very ill for a long time and then passed away then I just go busy. I’m finally getting back to the site now. Thanks so much for being in touch and for your lovely words. It means a lot to me. Please give Richard and yourself a big hug from me. Sally
Hey Sally! I just spent a lovely few days in Vancouver and explored the Fringe 2018. And — to my delight and surprise — I stopped by “Spinning You Home.” What a beautiful script and story. You did an amazing job calling up these ghosts, and the production was so well done. Loved the acting (both of them!) and the live sound design.
Congrats all around! And then — I could not but explore your website. What a line up of really exciting projects. Great to see you SOOO alive and thriving, and doing theatre and things creative in Vancouver.
PS: You really might not remember me but this goes years and years and years back when I was studying at UBC for my MA. We did a show together (for my directing course) and then took it to the FRINGE — “Who was Hilary Maconachie?” (An absurdist farce with a huge British Flag in the back…….) ;o)
Cordula! I haven’t been on the site for ages as I’ve been so darn busy with life and work, too. Thanks for your lovely comments about Spinning You Home. Of course I remember you! ‘Who was Hilary Maconachie?’ was a blast. I loved working on it. We had so much fun. I ran into Mrs. Drudge about a year ago in a line up for the Vancouver Film Festival. The terrible thing is that right now I can’t remember her real name. Lovely woman. So good to hear from you. Where are you these days? Still involved in theatre or academia? I’m so glad you were in touch. Take care of yourself. Sally
