YAGA

By Kat Sandler
Directed by Ann Hodges
Audio described performance Wed April 19 2023, 7:30 PM at the Tom Hendry Warehouse - book AD tickets here by selecting Audio Description from the drop down menu or contact the box office.

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 conjures a twisted fairy tale for a new age. Beware the wicked witch – her secrets are best left buried.

LET’S RUN AWAY 

Written and performed by Daniel MacIvor
Directed and dramaturged by Daniel Brooks
ASL-interpreted performance Tue December 13, 7:30 PM at the Tom Hendry Warehouse - book ASL section tickets here!

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 So now Peter is putting on a show, using his most treasured possessions as props and an unpublished memoir as a kind of script.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.

 

BURNING MOM

Written and Directed by Mieko Ouchi
ASL-interpreted performance Sun May 14, 2:00 PM at the John Hirsch Mainstage - book ASL section tickets here!

At 63, Dorothy expected to jump into the RV and take off with her husband at the wheel. Now facing life without her co-pilot, she makes a terrifying decision. She’s going to Burning Man. In the RV she’s never driven. To join thousands of revellers in the Nevada desert at the world’s largest art festival. Based on the playwright’s mother, Burning Mom follows one woman’s exploits as she sheds the pain and grief of the past so she may fully embrace the future. Told with bittersweet humour and hard-won courage, Dorothy’s story will have you rooting for her all the way. Burning Man or bust. Who’s coming along for the ride?
