“…sexy, sassy, two-fisted fun.”- Time Out NY
 
In this stylish mash-up, Qui Nguyen uses everything from hip hop to kung fu to tell the story of his parents’ escape to America after the fall of Saigon. Quang is a badass pilot who saved lives during the war, but was forced to leave his family behind. Sexy and strong, Tong is excited to write her own story but finds America isn’t exactly as advertised. Nguyen smashes stereotypes as he shares the pain and triumph of two warriors forced to find a home in a temporary world.
 
 
A DOLL’S HOUSE
By Henrik Ibsen
Translated by Joan Tindale
January 31 – February 16, 2019 (Preview January 30)
 
"…I came away spiritually recharged by confrontation with Ibsen's masterpiece." - The Guardian 
 
Henrik Ibsen’s realist masterpiece resonates more than a century after the debut of Nora Helmer, whose bourgeois illusions are shattered by the realization that she’s merely a doll in her own home. Nora is so hopelessly devoted to her husband Torvald that she will do anything to save his life. When the blackmailer threatens to reveal all, Nora must decide how far she’ll go to protect her family. A story of great love, deceit and discovery, A Doll’s House broke ground and caused widespread scandal when it was first produced.

It's Rocky meets Saturday Night Fever” - Edmonton Journal
It’s the 1970s and Francesco is the only kid in his Jasper school with a three-piece suit and a lunchbox full of cured meats and aged cheeses. Torn between his father’s deep Italian roots and the desire to adapt to his new country, Francesco Mantini fights his way to a new identity, with John Travolta as his model. Will the family bond survive Francesco’s rise to fame as Frank Martin? In this funny and charming one-man play, the journey from Abruzzo to Alberta is rife with twists and turns.
 
 
JOHN
By Annie Baker
April 4 – 20, 2019 (Preview April 3)

“…so good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light.” - The New Yorker 

Jenny and Elias are taking their crumbling relationship on a tour of Civil War sites, in the hope that a few days in a Gettysburg bed and breakfast will bring them together again. Their quirky hostess is a collector of countless fondly displayed objects, each representing some ghost or memory. The old dear’s treasures may soothe or haunt, depending on one’s state, and the player piano can take on an alarming life of its own at 2:00 in the morning. Annie Baker has done it again with this insightful reflection on human relationships. John illuminates the distance between what is seen with the eyes and what is simply understood, and asks how well we can really know the people we love.
