Hearts Like Fists

Oct 3-5, 10-12
  • By Adam Szymkowicz
  • Directed by Robin Nichol

The city’s heart beats with fear: Doctor X is sneaking into apartments and injecting lovers with a lethal poison. Now that Lisa has joined the elite Crimefighters, maybe she can live a life with meaning. Every beat of Peter’s wounded heart brings him closer to death, but he’s designing an artificial replacement that will never break. Can the Crimefighters stop Doctor X? Do Peter and Lisa have a chance at love? And who is the girl with a face like a plate?

Storied Voices

Nov 21-23, 28-30
  • By TRU AWT & storytellers of the CFBX storied voices project.
  • Directed by WES Eccleston and Christopher Weddell.

A new work of devised theatre celebrating local diverse voices. The performance weaves together verbatim texts and playback theatre via acting, movement, dance and music. A new cultural mosaic emerges with socially relevant subject matter.

The Comedy of Errors

Feb 27-Mar 1, 6-8
  • By William Shakespeare
  • Director by Catriona Leger

When two sets of identical twins separated at birth are brought to the same town by circumstance, mistaken identities abound! Antipholus of Syracuse and servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin siblings, Antipholus of Ephesus and servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, the result is a series of wildly hilarious mishaps which challenge the notion of truly knowing one’s friend, spouse, neighbour or self!
