Mob

Written by Catherine-Anne Toupin
Translation by Chris Campbell
Directed by Andrew Shaver
With Susan Bain, Matthew Kabwe and Adrianne Richards
Dates: March 3 to 29, 2020

A brilliant psychological thriller that keeps the audience in suspense to the very end.
“theatre [...] is a space where you have to explore disturbing things.” – Catherine-Anne Toupin
“d’une troublante réalité dont il a été peu question jusqu’ici” – La Presse

SOPHIE: When I spoke out against what was happening, that was when the real fun started.

Sophie, a professional with 20 years’ experience in her field, loses her job under questionable circumstances. Confused and hurt, she heads out of town looking for a way to assuage her humiliation and rage, eventually arriving at a quaint B&B run by the matronly Louise and her warm and welcoming nephew, Martin. After a few well-watered evenings, tongues loosen and a disturbing complicity develops between Martin and Sophie. Was her distraught drive to the country and unexpected arrival at the B&B as random as we think? A brilliant psychological thriller that keeps the audience in suspense to the very end.

Fences

Dates: April 21 to May 10, 2020

In this 1950s snapshot of blue collar America, a former convict fights to be a better husband and father to protect his family at the risk of tearing them apart.
“emotionally unmatched among all of Wilson’s works, a moving tribute to American men of every skin color” – Talkin’ Broadway

When the sins of our fathers visit us, We do not have to play host. – August Wilson

In this snapshot of 1950s America, the turbulence of the coming Civil Rights Movement is reflected in Troy Maxson’s household. Unlike his own father, Troy works hard to be a faithful husband and reli- able provider but the more he tries to protect his family, the more he tears it apart, and building a fence around them isn’t the answer. Wilson’s resilient and passionate characters are so alive we feel their blood course through our veins, their cares and frustrations become our own, and the warmth and laughter that buoy them, open our eyes.
