LOOKING  by  NORM FOSTER

Friday, October 4th 2019 to Saturday, October 12th 2019

From one of Canada’s most popular playwrights comes this hilarious comedy.  Val is an O.R. nurse, Andy is in the storage business, Nina is a police officer and Matt is the host of a morning radio show.  They’re middle-aged, single and looking.  Val agrees to meet Andy after answering his personal ad in the newspaper and Nina and Matt are coaxed into joining their friends for support.  What follows is hilarious, touching, and so very true to life.

TRIBES  by  NINA RAINE

Friday, January 31st 2020 to Saturday, February 8th 2020

Billy was born deaf in a hearing family.  He was raised inside its fiercely idiosyncratic and politically incorrect cocoon.  He has adapted brilliantly to his family’s unconventional ways but they’ve never bothered to return the favour.  It’s not until he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness that he finally understands what it means to be understood.

Production of TRIBES is provisional, based on receiving grants to cover the cost of production and royalties.

THE WAR BRIDES ARE COMING 

by 

GAIL WHITEHEAD

Friday, April 10th 2020 to Saturday, April 18th 2020

By Calgary author, Gail Whitehead, the play is set in Olds Alberta.  War brides are coming from Europe to join their new families in Olds after the war, but the families are not as welcoming as the girls could have hoped and they are met with tension and not exactly open arms.  Some adjustments are needed if the war brides are to live here happily ever after.
