Outside Mullingar

by John Patrick Shanley

July 15-August 7, 2021

Anthony and Rosemary are two middle-aged, introverted misfits. Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, a state of affairs that—due to his painful shyness—suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door watching the years slip away. With Anthony’s father threatening to disinherit him and a land feud simmering between their families, they both have every reason to fear catastrophe. In this very Irish story with a surprising depth of poetic passion, these yearning, eccentric souls fight their way towards solid ground and some kind of happiness. Their journey is very funny and ultimately deeply moving. Outside Mullingar is a Tony Award nominated, compassionate, delightful work about how it’s never too late to take a chance on love.

This show contains adult themes and some coarse language. It is recommended for persons aged 13+.

Where You Are

by Kristen Da Silva

September 2-25, 2021

This romantic comedy opens with retired sisters, Suzanne and Glenda, sitting on the porch of their shared island home. While the retirees’ conversation covers ordinary town gossip, it also ventures into much saucier territory - in fact, no topic seems off limits. A visit from Suzanne’s daughter, Beth, highlights a strained mother-daughter relationship. The sisters are keeping an important secret from Beth that they can longer contain, and Beth also hasn’t been forthright with life-altering news. Hilarious scenes follow featuring the handsome next door neighbour, a wild wedding, and some medicinal experimentation. Intermingled throughout are candid conversations about love and life, and the conclusion will leave you wiping tears from your eyes. This production will be the Nova Scotian premiere of this new comedy by award-winning Canadian playwright Kristen Da Silva.

This show contains some coarse language and mature themes. It is recommended for persons aged 13+.

Charles Dickens Writes A Christmas Carol

by Richard Quesnel

December 2-11, 2021

In 1843, 'A Christmas Carol' became one of the most popular books in the English language and has been credited by some as “almost single-handedly reviving the Christmas holiday.” In this adaptation of the holiday favourite, the audience sees the struggles faced by Charles Dickens in his writing of this classic novel. As Dickens creates the story, using only the power of his imagination and the inspiration gleaned from a small choir of wandering carolers, we not only see the beloved tale unfold of Ebenezer Scrooge and his amazing night of ghostly visitations, but find out why a Christmas Ghost-story was written in the first place. Infused with beautiful Victorian carols, dance, lots of humour and tender moments, this play by Canadian playwright Richard Quesnel will delight and inspire this Christmas season. 

This production is perfect for the whole family and is suitable for persons aged 7+.
