This Season's Past Shows


The Crackwalker September 8-10
By: Judith Thompson
Directed by: Michele Gossett

Theresa, a mentally challenged woman, and her dysfunctional boyfriend Alan struggle to find love and the security of a home but make disastrous decisions which result in tragedy. Sandy and Joe love each other in a battling way. Theirs is an abusive relationship based on sex, beer, battling and low expectations. The Crackwalker is a dark portrait of four marginalized people of the underbelly of Kingston Ontario, where playwright Judith Thompson had been a social worker, and their efforts to eke out a place in society.

California Suite September 1-3
By: Neil Simon
Directed by: Betty Karlen

This delightful Neil Simon comedy features four one act plays and four different sets of guests all staying in suites 203 and 204 of The Beverly Hills Hotel. From bickering best friends from Chicago, sparing over the results of a violent tennis match, to the man from Philadelphia, awakening to find an unconscious woman named Bunny in his bed and his wife on the way up, this show is never short on laughs.

Stags & Hens August 25-27
By: Willy Russell
Directed by: Amir Korangy

Unknown to each other, Linda and Dave have decided to have their respective hen and stag parties in the same tacky Liverpool club – or more accurately, in its toilets. Both parties are out on the prowl, after a night (or even just a few minutes) of passion – except for the groom, who is throwing up curry, and the bride, who is having second thoughts. Willy Russell’s raucous, coarse, and very funny play is a brilliant depiction of what passes for courtship, and the squeals, jeers and flings considered a necessary prelude to getting married.
