To Kill a Mockingbird
Revised Version, Dramatic Publishing Company
Based on the novel by Harper Lee, Feb. 4-6, 10-13, 2016

Set in the 1930’s, To Kill a Mockingbird is a story about racial injustice in a small town in the American south. With courage and compassion, lawyer Atticus Finch defends the truth. At the same time, the play traces the developing awareness of racial inequality through his feisty daughter Scout and son Jem.  Capturing the warmth and poignancy of Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, the play articulates the need for racial justice and tolerance, and the healing power the innocence of an unbiased child can offer.

Blithe Spirit
By Noel Coward, June 2-4, 8-11, 2016
At the centre of this delightful comedy is Charles, a novelist who hopes to gather material for a new book by inviting an eccentric clairvoyant to his home to conduct a séance. The scheme hilariously backfires when the ghost of his alluring, but temperamental first wife materializes. This is not good news for his second wife, who cannot see or hear the ghost. Charles’s orderly life is thrown into chaos as his two wives battle for supremacy in the witty tradition of Noel Coward.
