Wyrd Sisters

Wyrd Sisters

By Terry Pratchett and Stephen Briggs
Directed by Liz Delahunty

Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare’s Macbeth and then turns it up ’till the knob comes off. It’s all there – a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril. And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three witches. Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies).

Falling: A Wake

Falling: A Wake

BY GARY KIRKHAM
DIRECTED BY DANI ROSENBAUM

Harold and Elsie are a retired couple living on a chicken farm in a small, isolated Ontario town. One night, a plane explodes in the sky above their home, and litters their field with debris, including the body of a young man, still strapped in his airplane seat. Elsie refuses to leave the boy alone outside, and Harold spends the night trying to keep her comfortable while she keeps the boy company. Harold and Elsie find themselves confronting their own past experiences, trauma, and grief while watching over the stranger in their field. The play is unexpectedly light and funny in parts, and it deals with the themes of grief, loss, and acceptance in a truly touching way.

Zastrozzi, Master of Discipline

Hover Box Element

BY GEORGE F. WALKER
DIRECTED BY MATT WALSH

For three years, the master criminal Zastrozzi has been consumed by a quest for revenge. His target Verezzi has lost touch with reality and believes himself a messiah; only the tireless efforts of Verezzi’s “tutor” have kept the artist alive and free. Zastrozzi and his cohorts have tracked Verezzi to a small French town, at last launching a plot to satisfy Zastrozzi’s thirst for vengeance. Structurally a melodrama, Walker’s sparkling dialogue turn this into what’s been called a dark comedy of immoral ideas.

Pippin

Pippin

BY STEPHEN SCHWARTZ AND ROGER O HIRSON
DIRECTED BY SHANNON BROEKHOVEN

In this musical, heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin, is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power. Throughout the play, Pippin is guided and manipulated by a group of players lead by the Leading Player, who may or may not have his best interests at heart. After it’s revealed that the players intend for Pippin to set himself on fire in “one perfect act”, Pippin rejects the glory-seeking and finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
