2004 - 2005 Season

Generation Gap

By Keith Slater (Canadian)

Directed by Keith Slater

A young woman wants to use the money her grandparents have put aside for her to start a business with her fiancé, instead of for a college education. When she has a fight with her grandfather (a stroke victim, unable to speak) she leaves in a temper and suffers a traffic accident. As a result, she needs a kidney transplant and he is the best match. Against the grandmother's wishes, the girl's mother persuades him to donate the organ,

but he dies after the surgery. The grandmother becomes bitter and, in the ensuing recriminations, the family learns a long-hidden secret, explaining why the girl's father left them after a crime committed years ago.

Performances: September  16-18, 23-25, 2004

Julius Caesar

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Rob Card

Julius Caesar is one of Shakespeare’s most captivating plays, blending the historical and tragic genres into a masterwork of intrigue, betrayal, deception, revenge and war.  This is the tale of the rise and fall of two great men: Caesar – a powerful general, tested in battle, and one of Rome’s most aggressive conquerors, and Brutus – a servant of the people and a believer in the greatness that is Rome.  Tragic figures, fatally flawed, yet both rise to the highest power in Rome. . . if only for a brief instant.

Performances: November  18&19, 25&26, 2004 7:00 pm
November 20&27, 2004 2:00 pm

Melville Boys

By Norm Foster (Canadian)

Directed By Gail Tako

Two brothers, anticipating no more than a weekend of fishing, beer and fun at a lakeside cabin, get more than they bargained for when they meet two sisters.   Their plans quickly get changed when the girls stay overnight and become catalysts for a very funny, tender and unsentimental look at what happens when four lives in transition touch common ground.

Performances: March 17-19, 24-26, 2005 8pm

The Dining Room

By A.R. Gurney

Directed by Angela Yeates

Six performers portray a wide array of diverse characters in a mosaic of interrelated scenes—some funny, some touching, some rueful—as they delineate the dying lifestyle of wealthy WASPdom from the point of view of the now neglected room which was once a vital centre of family life: the dining room of a well-to-do household, the place where the nuclear family once assembled daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions.

Performances: June 16-18, 23-25, 2005 8pm
