    WINTER 2021 PRODUCTIONS

    Mere Mortals

    March 16 - March 18
    Mere Mortals & Others
    Plays by David Ives

    Directed by Kathleen Duborg

    "Mere Mortals and Others is a collection of six short plays written by David Ives. It includes Sure Thing, Words, Words, Words, The Philadelphia, Variations on the Death of Trotsky, Mere Mortals and English Made Simple. These plays swerve into the human comedy and cosmic chaos tossing people into and out of relationships and the meaning of it all. It is the possibilities and frailties of connection that each short play exposes. Ives' dialogue is electrifying, funny, honest and illuminating with each play asking us to look under the absurdity of it all-it might be surprising what you find.

    WARNINGS: Coarse language and mature content, fog and haze effects used.

    Zastrozzi

    March 24 - March 26
    Zastrozzi
    by George F. Walker

    Directed by Thrasso Petras

    Zastrozzi is always a work of genuine imagination. Walker's razor-sharp sense of irony pushes the moral statement over the top, and we're left with a bundle of imagery that burns a hole in the brain. Sometimes, it looks outrageous. You can laugh. But sooner or later, you have to stop. And the peril hasn't passed. Then. perhaps, you find you want to stop and think. It's hard to do better than that, in the theatre." (William Lane. Toronto, 1979)

    Blue windows are everywhere in Craig Lucas' 1984 play — as scenery, as plot, and as metaphor. In this up close slice of urban life, we listen in to the living rooms of 7 individuals, the conversation is languid, layered, staccato — indeed, musical. Each of Lucas’ characters are so real they compel you to think about their existence beyond the play. But the wider view through the blue window  reveals a collision of seven individuals whose sharp angles and disparate fragments fit together to form a picture of our lives today.
