Mending Fences

By Norm Foster
Directed by Graham Clements
Produced by Chuck Learn

Mending Fences portrays human drama that is relevant to anyone who has ever been a parent, a son or a daughter, which includes us all. It tells a story that spans two generations but takes place over a few days. It is a powerful play that uses hockey as the symbol of a powerplay between father and son. Foster’s magic is in his ability to weave pathos with humour without ever confusing the audience about whether it’s time to laugh or cry. An excellent script supported by superb acting makes this a powerful play and a must-see for everyone who appreciates the magic of live theatre.

“Norm Foster is our most-produced playwright for a reason: he’s very, very funny.”
– Montreal Gazette

September 16-17, 23-24, 29-30, October 1, 2016

Banner-Papers

Papers

By Allan Stratton

Directed by Tom Mackan
Produced by Michelle Spanik

This comedy is about the lives and loves of the highly learned in the halls of higher education. With wicked wit and finely tuned dialogue this will appeal to your love of theatre.

Here’s a comedy about the lives and loves of the highly learned in the halls of higher education, or as one lecturer describes it, “an endless stream of intellectual toads, known as the academic faculty.” Charles is an accomplished writer beginning his post as Lakeside U. as Writer-In-Residence. He is writing a new novel. Myra is on the Faculty and is writing a book on Charles. Both are in their prime and both are priming. The situation is set, the plot develops and a relationship lurks. Also lurking is Bobbi, a delicious undergrad with aspirations to poetry and to Charles. The wit is wicked, the dialog is finely tuned comedy. Stratton’s play sparkles with a writer’s love of fooling around and he has a clever ending that will tickle your love of theatre.

“Stratton’s love of theatre and of people illuminates his work… Packed with crisply funny lines, Stratton has almost certainly conjured up another hit.”
 – Robert Crew, Toronto Star
