MARY'S WEDDING

By Canadian playwright Stephen Massicotte
Directed by Stephen Tobias

A love story set against the backdrop of World War I, Mary’s Wedding is an epic, unforgettable story of love, hope, and survival. 

When Mary and Charlie unexpectedly find one another sheltering in a barn during a thunderstorm, a tentative love is born. But the year is 1914, and they must surrender their fates to the tumultuous times of the First World War. Their love story extends from the fields of Canada’s Prairies to the battlefields of France’s Moreuil Wood, as the playwright weaves time, dreams and memory together to remind us that the heart is beautifully resilient. Mary’s Wedding is a moving memorial to both the Great War and great love.

THE WOLVES

By Sarah DeLappe

In this contemporary slice-of-life play, The Wolves, a girls’ indoor soccer team, practice drills as they prepare for a succession of games. As they warm up and talk about life, the girls navigate the politics of their personal lives as well as the politics of the larger world, gossiping about things like war, menstrual products, genocide, sports, pop culture, and their relationships. Each team member struggles to negotiate her individuality while being a part of a group. They bond over a bag of orange slices and personal traumas. The team seems as if it may disband after the sudden death of one of the girls, but they manage to come together. In the end, the surviving team players prepare to play yet another game together – closer, stronger, wiser, and fiercer.

May 7 & 8, 2020.
