The Knave of Hearts
In this renaissance themed farce, Captain Jack Hawkins discovers a golden opportunity to earn some much-needed cash by convincing an English lord's daughters to agree to their father's wishes and wed. But Jack's plan works too well, as the girls both decide to wed *him*. Suddenly, Jack finds himself in a desperate struggle to win the gold, stay one step ahead of bodily harm, and most of all, hold on to his prized bachelorhood.

A Doll's House
A Doll's House traces the awakening of Nora Helmer from her unexamined life of domestic comfort. Ruled her whole life by either her father or her husband, Nora must question the foundation of everything she believes in when her marriage is put to the test. Henrik Ibsen's classic is a representation of how women throughout history have been subjugated to an inferior level.

Death comes to us all. When he came to Mort, he offered him a job. After being assured that being dead was not compulsory, Mort accepted. Getting good help can be difficult, but for the anthropomorphic personification of death, it can be more trouble than it's worth. KWLT’s amateur production of Mort is a look into the personal life of Death's apprentice, Mortimer, as he finds a career, leaves home, falls in love and shoulders more responsibility than is due any young lad.
Terry Pratchett's "Discworld" is alive in 29 novels, and thanks to Stephen Briggs, six of those novels can be seen on stage. This will be the Ontario Premier for Mort, so join us as we stalk into History and talk in CAPITAL LETTERS.

Fourteen killings, nine of them on stage, six severed members, one rape, one live burial, one case of insanity, and one act of cannibalism. That’s an average of 5.2 atrocities per act, or one for every 97 lines. What’s not to love?
One of Shakespeare’s most violent plays, Titus Andronicus speaks volumes to a current society obsessed with violence and violent images. Both disturbing and darkly comedic, Titus is sure to entertain.

New to KWLT in the 2001-2002 season, the Popcorn Plays instantly became a favourite that started a new tradition. Popcorn Plays are a collection of even shorter plays than those found in the One Act Week Ends. A collection of 5 - 15 minute long plays are put together to fill an evening. Often funny, sometimes touching or "deep" these tiny plays make for an enjoyable night at the theatre. For more information please contact us at info(at)kwlt.org

One Act Play Weekends
We have a long tradition of mounting some of the "smaller" plays. What happens is 2-4 one act plays are performed on a single evening at a single low price. This has proven quite popular with our audiences as they get the opportunity to see shows that are not often performed, and see a range of acting and directing all on a single night out! For the theatre community, the "One Acts" (as they are often referred to as) provide an excellent opportunity to experiment and try something new. Whether it's getting up the nerve to go on stage for the first time, to play something that is more of a stretch, to try your hand at directing, to see what its like to help back stage, or just coming out to show your support and enjoying an evening as an audience member, the One Act Play Weekends provide a nice bite size taste of the community theatre scene.
