Return Engagements

A Comedy by Bernard Slade

Directed by Tom Levely
Produced by Barb Pollard

This ingenious comedy is by the author of Same Time, Next Year, Tribute, Romantic Comedy and Same Time, Another Year. The first act is comprised of three vignettes showing separate couples: a tipsy actress and the bellboy who has bedded her the night before, a gutsy Polish woman who has survived World War II and a carpenter whom she chooses to father her baby, and an acid tonged columnist and his cool psychotherapist wife who are about to split up. In Act II, we learn much to our merriment how they ended up. And, we learn how, ultimately, their stories are all linked together.

“A packed house roared with laughter… the play is laced with great one liners and farcical situations… A ton of laughs.”

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.”

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.”
