Our Summer Productions

July 11 - 20, 2014


Criminals in Love

by George Walker

directed by Erin Maxfield


Our July comedy is a rambunctious, deft and hilarious work about destiny, love and the classes. It is one of five plays that Walker has written about the slums of East Toronto. He was a cab driver in Toronto until one day in the early seventies when he say a flyer seeking new plays and decided to respond, a move that set him on the path to becoming one of the most frequently produced playwrights in Canada

Junior is a goofy post-adolescent in love with the smart Gail. Junior, however has a father in prison who blackmails Junior into committing a crime. Soon Junior finds himself hooked up with an unlikely set of accomplices including his girl friend, a drunk turned hero-of-the-hour, a mad, pseudo-revolutionary who kisses everyone(kiss of death? Judas kiss? lust?) and a young woman who has tried prostitution as legitimate carrer choice. It can't possibly end well.

Criminals in Love is a comedy with overtones of seriousness. Which makes it about perfect if you like to be able to laugh, but but also like to have something that lingers, something to think about later.

Enchanted April

by Matthew Barber

directed by Judi Wilson


Enchanted April is set in London, 1922, soon after the Great War. Two proper, unhappily married British women spot an advertisement for a castle for rent on the Italian coast in April and decide to rent it. To help cover the cost, Lotty and Rose recruit the younger and more modern Lady Caroline and the Victorian Mrs. Graves to share the castle and the experience. There, among the wisteria blossoms and Mediterranean sunshine, all four blossom again, rediscovering themselves in ways that they - and we - could never have expected.

Enchanted April is based on the 1922 novel The Enchanted April by Elizabeth von Arnim. The novel was the basis of an earlier stage adaptation and a film released in the 1990s. Matthew Barber's play premiered in Hartford, Conn., in 2000 and opened at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway in 2003, and was nominated for a Tony Award.
