2023 - 2024 SEASON
Early Spring 2024
This play explores identity, family, place, connection, and estrangement, the act of being a stranger in a place of belonging, and the mixing of many cultures in the economic shift between the fur trade and the forestry and rail industries.. It is about a mother and her daughter, their lives through massive shifts. Their positions and identities throw them into a crushing sense of time towards starvation. This play is also about resourcefulness and resilience. It is a play about Indigenous success and capability.
A Coproduction with Hiraeth Collective, Written and Directed by Terre Chartard
Presented at The Village – Canadore College
January 25 – 27, 2024 & February 2 – 3, 2024
Hamlet Cha, Cha, Cha!
May 1-5, 2024
Totally insane. And totally hilarious. You all know the story of Hamlet - but never has a plot line been followed by such gleefully drunken footsteps, singing all the way! Picture the soliloquy don by Prince Hamlet with a back up male chorus chanting "Doo Waaah" at inappropriate intervals. And how about Queen Gertrude, backed up by the female chorus [the "Elsinoritas,"of course], telling Laertes about Ophelia's dreadful death in a hand clapper called "Down, Down, Down the River!"? Believe us, if you've always hated Shakespearean plays, you'll love this show, but paradoxically, if you've always loved Shakespearian plays, you'll love this show despite yourself!
Written by Monk Ferris - Directed by Scott Vander Waal
