THE RED PRIEST (EIGHT WAYS TO SAY GOODBYE)

By Mieko Ouchi
Directed by Keltie Fosyth

In 1740, Antonio Vivaldi is commissioned to teach a woman to play violin before the King of France…in six weeks’ time. Is such a performance possible? And why would either agree to this? In this lush and resonant play by Canadian Mieko Ouchi, the challenges of teaching and the beauty of music are laid bare.

Run time 80 minutes, no intermission. Please note that due to physical distancing, in-person seating is very limited, so early booking is encouraged. To learn more about our online viewing option, please click here.

SHE SELLS SEA SHELLS

By Helen Eastman (North American Premiere)
Directed by Sarah Rodgers

When she was twelve, Mary Anning discovered the first ichthyosaur, and she became an important, if forgotten, paleontologist. Known primarily from the children’s tongue-twister that she inspired, Anning’s life challenges us to see the beauty buried in the stones beneath our feet.

SILENT SKY

By Lauren Gunderson

THE HERE AND THIS AND NOW

By Glenn Waldron (North American Premiere)
Directed by Lauren Taylor

Four pharmaceutical reps work on their pitch for the miracle drug they are asked to sell. This play lays bare the ethics of marketing medications, where style and substance must compete with each other. Things take a darkly comic turn when it turns out the drug could have saved the world.

Matinées: All Sundays (June 6, 13, 20, 27)
