22/23 WAREHOUSE PLAYBILL

 

NEW

By Pamela Mala Sinha
Directed by Alan Dilworth
In association with Necessary Angel Theatre Company 

November 3–19, 2022 (Preview November 2)

An inspiring story of risking it all and finding yourself, New tells a coming-of-age story of a group of immigrants from India in Winnipeg, 1970. In torpedo bras and skinny ties, and set against a backdrop of social upheaval, a doctor, a dancer, a professor, two students and a bride are all in search of freedom. But what they find is much greater than what they had expected. Written by Winnipeg-born playwright Pamela Mala Sinha, New grapples with the complexity of love, marriage and belonging, and shows us that it’s never too late to begin again.


Let’s Run Away

Written and performed by Daniel MacIvor
Directed and dramaturged by Daniel Brooks

December 1–17, 2022 (Preview Nov 30)

Peter is trying to tell us his story. He has lived “a colourful life”, not that he’s bragging about it. It’s just the way it is when you’ve been abandoned as a child (twice) and you end up living under a bridge or in a motel with a circus carney. So now Peter is putting on a show, using his most treasured possessions as props and an unpublished memoir as a kind of script. He’s not necessarily a major player in the memoir – definitely not the main character – but he doesn’t mind improvising. A raucous, heartbreaking and slightly unhinged performance of love and abandonment from celebrated Canadian theatre artists Daniel MacIvor and Daniel Brooks.


SEXUAL MISCONDUCT OF THE MIDDLE CLASSES

By Hannah Moscovitch
Directed by Cherissa Richards

March 2–18, 2023 (Preview March 1)

If trouble comes knocking, you don’t have to answer. But if you’re a star professor, “writerfamous” and in between wives, the door swings wide open. Even when the faculty handbook makes it pretty clear: thou shalt not enter into a relationship with a student. Annie is young but old enough to know her own mind, so it should be fine. And it is, until the relationship runs its course and their version of events clearly differ. The end of their affair is definitely not the end of the story. Acclaimed playwright Hannah Moscovitch received the Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama for this provocative response to the #MeToo conversation.


YAGA

By Kat Sandler
Directed by Ann Hodges

April 6–22, 2023 (Preview April 5)

A cocky private investigator teams up with a small-town detective to find a missing person. The victim – if he’s missing at all – was a bad dog who left a trail of conquests in his wake. Top of the list is Kath, an older professor with a reputation for bedding students. Is she a woman scorned? Is she a suspect? Or is she something more sinister? As the case unravels, predator and prey become indistinguishable, and no one is safe. In this murder mystery-revenge comedy, inspired by Baba Yaga folklore, Kat Sandler (Bang Bang) conjures a twisted fairy tale for a new age. Beware the wicked witch – her secrets are best left unearthed.
