You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. She finds it hard to be happy. You start a list of everything worth living for. You leave it on her pillow.

Inspired by letters from the playwrights’ grandfather (a member of the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders Infantry), A Soldier’s War follows the journey of five young Canadians from basic training in Nova Scotia, through to D-Day, and the return home.

Monday Night by Todd Devonshire

Produced by Highway 55 Productions

Jan. 10-13 & 17-20, 2019

The night John Lennon died in New York City the announcement was broadcast to the world by Howard Cossell on Monday Night Football. Some have only heard about it through stories. For others it feels as though it happened… well, yesterday.

Monday Night makes its world premiere as part of the Live Five/SPC play development partnership.

March 7-10 & 14-17, 2019

In 1967, Valerie Solanas wrote a manifesto suggesting that in order for women to be truly liberated, they must overthrow the government and exterminate the male sex. Juxtaposed with the story of two women navigating the trendy world of modern feminism, SCUM takes a playful look at radicalism, feminists, and the wild life of the woman who shot pop-art legend Andy Warhol.

Stifled by pressure from her mother and neighbors to fit in, she escapes to the outdoors and develops a unique relationship with the crows in her suburban neighbourhood. But when a crow begins to speak to her, events take a dangerous turn. She always thought the world had more malice than magic…
