An inspiring story of risking it all and finding yourself, New tells the 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.

A Pulitzer Prize finalist, The Wolves takes us to the pitch for a teenage soccer team’s weekly warm-up. During pre-game rituals, we eavesdrop. Their preoccupations cover a mind-boggling range of topics: boys/girls, scholarships, Cambodian dictators, social hierarchies and, of course, kicking their next opponent. Label them at your peril – they’re tough to pin down. They want to fit in but need to stand out. They’re feral and fierce but soft at the core. Featuring fast-paced dialogue and fancy footwork, The Wolves is a refreshingly candid look at one of society’s most dismissed groups: teenage girls. They have a voice. They will only get stronger. They are The Wolves.

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 on 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.

“That’s all that matters. Kindness. An act of kindness.” When Jacob, a ZAKA volunteer in Israel, makes a split-second decision to save the life of a suspected stabber, instead of the soldier they may have killed, his world is changed forever. Based on a real-life rescue and recovery ZAKA member, the play urges us to consider the value of human connection in a world so profoundly divided. A powerful thriller from Toronto’s Human Cargo and winner of the 2019 Dora Mavor Moore Awards for Outstanding Production, Outstanding Direction and Outstanding New Play.
