Coupland: What’s next, a breakfast cereal?

lifeaftergod.jpgIt’s that one Coupland book that sits awkwardly on the shelf at Chapters because of its tiny size. Life After God [wiki] is a collection of short stories that has been adapted into a play [lifeaftergod] that ran this month at UBC, the Telus Studio Theatre and the Vancouver East Cultural Centre.

Adapted from the short story Life After God by Douglas Coupland, and inspired by his bitingly funny book City of Glass, this new play takes a penetrating look at a generation raised without religion. Both funny and moving, Life After God is a free-wheeling, theatrically spectacular examination of our quest for transcendence in the city of seismic shifts – Vancouver. [touchstonetheatre]

This comes after Souvenir of Canada: The Movie, another Coupland work that made it to film [mbv].

Apologies, as this post is a little late and the play is all over and done with now. If anyone did get a chance to attend the play, feel free to write thoughts, reviews etc. in the comments, cause that would be great.

If you are a fan of Coupland’s work you might also be interested in the talk of JPod coming to the small screen. The Inside the CBC blog reports that “JPod is currently in production for a potential series.”

Or you could also enjoy the Coupland blackberry ads if you’re really jones’ing for more Doug [mbv].
