The Number 14The Number 14 is a Canadian success story extraordinaire! In an amazing theatrical tour-de-force, six of Vancouver’s finest performers strut, swing, sing and talk their way in and out of adventures aboard Vancouver’s #14 bus that is part Monty Pythonesque, part Mr. Bean and wholly engaging.

The Number 14 earned a 1998 New York Drama Desk nomination in the Unique Theatrical Experience category. The production has also garnered four Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards, and a Dora Mavor Moore nomination.

The Number 14 originated in Vancouver as the brainchild of founding Artistic Director Wayne Specht along with Roy Surette, currently the Artistic Director at the CentaurTheatre in Montreal. Stemming from a series of improvisational skits and showcasing the talents of some of Vancouver’s most loved physical performers, this slice of urban city life has been wowing audiences around the world since its debut in 1992.
