The Art Of War

Now Not Showing! but will someday

A New Play by Yvette Nolan

Director's Message

Making a play during a global pandemic about making art during a war has been illuminating, inspiring, and nourishing.  The artists have had to grapple with why we would risk our lives and adapt our craft to come to the room every day and tell a story.  What could be so important?

We have spent the last three weeks talking about art, about the war artists who made art under the most punishing conditions, to try and achieve some understanding of what they were seeing, what we were doing overseas.  As Magda says in the play, "the work reflects only the human spirit, attempting to speak of something larger than itself."

I am sorry that we are not able to share this production with audiences this go round.  As I write this, COVID cases are spiking in Saskatchewan, British Columbia has just gone into a circuit breaker lockdown, and a key scientific advisor has declared that the pandemic is now completely our of control in Ontario.

But when we have done our private preview, opening, and closing this weekend, we will package up the set and props and costumes and store them carefully, in anticipation of the day when we can sit together in a theatre and celebrate the human spirit.
