Outside Mullingar

by John Patrick Shanley

June 25-July 18, 2020

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+.

by Mary-Colin Chisholm

Daughter Mary-Rose has moved away to Toronto. Mom doesn’t want to waste money on expensive long distance calls so she’s recording all the news on tape to send to her.

This sweet, funny and whimsical play by Atlantic Canadian favourite, Mary-Colin Chisholm, is a celebration of story, family ties and a longing for home.

Lauchie, Liza and Rory

by Sheldon Currie

August 6-29, 2020

From the author of The Glace Bay Miner's Museum comes this all-too-human comedy of unrequited love. Lauchie and Rory are twin brothers who could not be more different. Liza is married to one, but pines for the other. And they all live in a small mining community in 1940s Cape Breton Island. The play’s two actors switch characters at a dizzying pace playing parents, siblings, children, priests, and nuns to weave the tale of a warm and tightly-knit family coming to terms with the meaning of love and loyalty.

Where You Are

by Kristen Da Silva

September 18-October 4, 2020

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+.
