Strangers Among Us

By Aaron Bushkowsky

Directed by Maureen Dwyer
Produced by Penny Oliver

This is a drama with humour to break the seriousness of the plot.

“Gabrielle and Michael meet by accident, fall in love, part, meet again and fall in love all over again. The problem is, every time they meet, they forget each other’s names. They can’t help it; they suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. Complicating things are family members who have difficulty with the changes and challenges Gabrielle and Michael experience, as they become more and more entangled in the debris of memory and language. Eventually, Gabrielle and Michael end up in a long-term care facility where they meet other people suffering from the same malady, extraordinary people who live and die with courage and hope. In the end Michael and Gabrielle find love again and, in the process, change the lives of the people around them”.

Greatly feared and poorly understood Alzheimer’s disease hardly seems fit fare for the theatre but Buskowsky puts a gentle spin on it.

Waiting For The Parade

Written by John Murrell

Directed by Sondra Learn
Produced by Penny Oliver

A touching drama that speaks honestly and directly to the heart.

Waiting for the Parade by playwright John Murrell, is an award winning Canadian play which takes place in Calgary in the 1940s during WWII.  With music and costumes from the era, it captures life back home as people rallied to support the war effort amid shortages and personal loss.

They are the women who also served during World War II, providing munitions and knitted socks, battling food shortages and devastating loneliness, who were expected to “keep smiling through” until the boys came home.

Dates: September 14-15, 21-22, 28-29, 2018
