BETWEEN THE SHEETS by Jordi Mand – Toronto

Directed by Kelly Thornton
Starring Susan Coyne and Christine Horne
Sets and Costumes by Camellia Koo, Sound by Richard Feren, Lighting by Sandra Henderson

What begins as a banal parent teacher interview unravels into a gripping and raw discussion between two women on the brink of disaster. One woman is fighting to protect her family. The other is fighting for the family she always wanted. An exposé on aging, fertility, marriage and midlife crisis, Mand has crafted a razor sharp, rollercoaster ride of high stakes drama.

Show Times: Wednesday November 30, 8pm; Saturday December 3, 2pm; Sunday December 4, 8pm; Tuesday December 6, 8pm; Friday December 9, 8pm

THE AFTERMATH by Lisa Codrington – Toronto

Directed by Audrey Dwyer
Starring Lisa Codrington and Ijeoma Emesowum

Sets and Costumes by Camellia Koo, Sound by Richard Feren, Lighting by Sandra Henderson

In the face of impending catastrophe and despite widespread evacuation there are simply those that shall not be moved. Inspired by Hurricane Katrina, playwright Lisa Codrington takes us on a harrowing and humorous exploration of survival in The Aftermath taking us to the eye of the storm to reveal the humanity of those left behind.

Show Times: Thursday December 1, 8pm; Saturday December 3, 8pm; Monday December 5, 2pm; Wednesday December 7, 8pm; Saturday December 10, 2pm

 

THE DEBACLE by Ann-Marie Kerr and Susan Leblanc Crawford – Zuppa Theatre, Halifax

Actor/Co-creator Susan Leblanc-Crawford
Director/Co-creator Ann-Marie Kerr

Going to scientific extremes a woman attempts to freeze memories of her dying sister and in the process learns the power of letting go. The Debacle is a sad, funny and highly theatrical portrait of a woman facing the inevitable reality of being alone.

Show Times: Sunday December 4, 2pm; Monday December 5, 8pm; Thursday December 8, 8pm; Saturday December 10, 8pm
