THE NEW CANADIAN CURLING CLUB

A show that is sure to rock the house. Comedy abounds when 4 new(ish) Canadians sign up to learn “a bunch of foolishness that’s not even a real sport”. But when the team organizer breaks her hip, the rink’s cantankerous ice-maker is forced to step in as head coach. Trouble is, he has some strong opinions about immigrants… Will this group of unlikely athletes—facing off against prejudice, pulled groins, and slippery ice—become a true team in time to face high-pressure competition for the coveted Highlander Cup?

EVERY BRILLIANT THING
Apr 30 to May 9, 2020 - Pavilion Theatre

(1) Ice cream, (2) rollercoasters, (3) the smell of old books – as a mother battles chronic depression, a child creates a list of everything that makes life worth living. As time passes and the list grows, what began as a simple attempt to deal with childhood sadness becomes an epic and heart-warming chronicle of life's joys, both big and small. Staged in an in-the-round setting, this touching, funny, and intimate solo piece charts the lengths we will go for those we love.
