The upcoming 2017-2018 season looks promising.  Now in rehearsal for its October opening is Peter Shaffer’s LETTICE AND LOVAGE which the company bills as a hilarious satire centered around a flamboyant countryside tour guide who likes to embellish the facts on her tours.  During one tour she meets her counterpart, a fact obsessed, London based official in desperate need of distraction. The winter production of SISTERS by Wendy Lill, is a devastating, intense and provocative Canadian play which follows a horrific event to occur in a residential school.  There you have it – two engaging plays offering comedy, drama and an opportunity for audiences to laugh, to think, to ponder and to reflect.

Performance dates for LETTICE AND LOVAGE are October 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 2017 at 8 pm with matinees at 2 pm on October 14 and 21, 2017.  Performance dates for SISTERS are February 15, 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24, 2018 at 8 pm with matinees at 2 pm on February 17 and 24, 2018.

From the playwright who brought us Equus and Amadeus, comes an uproarious comedy that can only be described as, “Extremely British”! Originally written for the incomparable Maggie Smith (who won the Tony award for her performance in 1990), this hilarious satire is centred on a flamboyant countryside tour guide who loves to dramatically embellish upon British history. Her life is forever changed in an instant when she meets her surprising counterpart: a fact-obsessed, London-based official who is in desperate need of distraction.
