For the remainder of our season, we will present two productions that are fully rehearsed, staged and filmed at the John Hirsch Mainstage for a digital audience, as well as our annual Lawyers Play streamed live for one evening only.  

THE (POST) MISTRESS
Book, Lyrics & Music by Tomson Highway

Directed by Simon Miron
Starring Krystle Pederson

April 8 – 25

Back when life was simple – if life was ever simple – people wrote letters. In the small town of Lovely, Ontario, every letter passes through the hands of postmistress Marie-Louise Painchaud. Cheeky and cheerful, Marie-Louise delights in living vicariously through the stories shared in letters mailed from all over the world. Featuring piano and saxophone, the musical stylings evoke these faraway places – samba, bossa nova, tango, Dixieland and Berlin Cabaret rap. Uplifting, funny and poignant, this one-woman musical tour de force by Tomson Highway (Dry Lips Oughta Move to Kapuskasing, The Rez Sisters) reminds us that in life, you should never mail it in.

TINY PLAYS, BIG IDEAS
Directed by Kelly Thornton
May 7 – 23

We’re thrilled to work with commissioned artists Waawaate Fobister, Primrose Madayag Knazan, Jordan Sangalang and Liam Zarrillo to bring this innovative and deeply relevant new offering to audiences.

Previously envisioned as an in-person event at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Tiny Plays, Big Ideas will now be shared digitally. A series of short plays give voice to four dynamic playwrights who explore human rights in the world we're living in right now. Dare yourself to be challenged, captivated and inspired by these formidable artists and their call for change.
