by Peter Shaffer

Matinees October 14 and 21 at 2pm

Presented by Borelians Community Theatre

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.

Friday October 13th is also the show’s GALA PREMIER CELEBRATION. Before the show, starting at 7pm, there will be free wine; free desserts, and after the show you are invited to tour the stage and meet the cast and crew. This is a great opportunity to experience local theatre like never before!

After Mary, a young nun, burns down the residential school she teaches at, her path from faith to disillusionment plays out before her eyes. Haunted by her youthful hope, transformed by the nuns and students she works with, Mary does the only thing her smoldering soul will allow her to do: confess.

Devastating, evocative and forthright, this play will take audiences on a cathartic journey that may never be forgotten.

SALT-WATER MOON
By David French

Performances: July 11, 12, 20, 21, 22 – 8pm
Matinees July 8, 15 – 2pm

Presented by Theatre 3×60

The First World War is over and every day, the villages of Newfoundland are abandoned for a new life in the big city. Under the light of the moon, two former lovers meet to confront their past choices and contemplate a possible future. Salt-Water Moon is the story of a young man, Jacob Mercer, returning to Colley’s Point to win the heart of Mary Snow. Truly romantic, it is a glimpse of Eden caught in the moonlight over Newfoundland and Labrador. Salt-Water Moon is one of the Mercer Plays (along with Leaving Home, Of The Fields, Lately, 1949, and Soldier’s Heart) and is a Dora Mavor Moore Award winner. It is the gentlest play in the cycle, and answers many of the questions audiences for Leaving Home and Of the Fields, Lately may have had about the relationship of Mary and Jacob. It is considered by many to be the best of the Mercer Plays and, perhaps, of the entire David French canon. Direction by Carey Nicholson

Mary’s Wedding by Stephen Massicotte is a moving, lyrical play that illuminates the relationship between a young farmer and a recent English immigrant to Canada in the early part of the 20th century. It begins on the evening before Mary’s wedding in 1920, and tracks back to show her first meeting with Charlie, their growing attraction, and his departure for the war. Mary’s Wedding shows how memory informs the present, and how it becomes a means of survival.

Mary’s Wedding won the Alberta Playwriting Competition in 2000, and has since been produced many times in theatres across Canada, including the National Arts Centre, and in the United States, England, and Scotland. Direction by Carey Nicholson.

Coming Soon… Neil Young Tribute Show

The Neil Young Show 220x220NEIL YOUNG TRIBUTE SHOW

Performance: Saturday Nov. 11, 8pm

Presented by Ultimate Artists Live

Neil Young is an iconic Canadian singer-songwriter and musician who began performing in a group covering Shadows instrumentals in Canada in 1960, before moving to California in 1966, where he co-founded the band Buffalo Springfield, and later joined Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1969. He released his first album in 1968 and has since forged a successful and acclaimed solo career, spanning over 45 years and 35 studio albums, with a continuous and uncompromising exploration of musical styles. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website describes Young as “one of rock and roll’s greatest songwriters and performers”. Young’s music is characterized by his distinctive guitar work, deeply personal lyrics and characteristic alto or high tenor singing voice. While Young has experimented with differing music styles throughout a varied career, including electronic music, most of his best known work is either acoustic folk-rock and country rock or electric, amplified hard rock (most often in collaboration with the band Crazy Horse). Musical styles such as alternative rock and grunge also adopted elements from Young. His influence has caused some to dub him the “Godfather of Grunge”.
