Stanley Park by Timothy Taylor, dramatized by Betty Quan

Young chef Jeremy Papier believes strongly in sourcing local ingredients for his small restaurant located on the edge of Vancouver's Chinatown. What could be more local than Stanley Park pigeons, ducks, raccoons and squirrels? Add a greedy coffee shop magnate, a bunch of homeless people and a decades-old murder and you've got a recipe for entertainment.

I listened to a BTC audiobook dramatized by playwright Betty Quan. The production is only two hours long, but the full cast plus music by The Colorifics go a long way to compensate for what's been cut from the original.
