Written By: W.O. Mitchell
Directed By: Pamela Niesiobedzki-Curtis
Produced By: Richard Ouellette

When Wullie MacCrimmon, a shoemaker in the 1930s foothills town of Wild Rose, muses aloud that he would give anything to skip his curling team in the MacDonald Brier, the Devil, a traveling salesman who deals in wholesale souls and retail sin suddenly appears and makes him an offer. Wullie makes a counter offer, and one of the greatest matches in curling history is on a Black Bonspiel. When the Devil appears with his curling team-- Judas Iscariot (lead), Lizzie Borden (second), and Macbeth (third)--Wullie and his team are in for one hell of a match.

Noises Off

A play within a play about an ambitious director and his troupe of mediocre actors as they rehearse the flop "Nothing’s On”. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. Watch both on stage and back stage as everything starts to fall apart for this cast of itinerant actors. Considered by The New York Times as, "The most dextrously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy.

An Inspector Calls

An Inspector Calls Poster
Written By: J.B. Priestley
Directed By: Robin Bennett
Produced By: Liz Dennis

Set in an industrial city, a young pregnant girl commits suicide and an eminently respectable family is subject to an inquiry in connection with her death. A police inspector calls to interrogate the family during a dinner party, and in the course of his questioning all members of the group are implicated in the girl's demise. The family, closely knit and friendly at the beginning of the evening, is shown as selfish, self-centered or cowardly, and before the evening is over, good humour turns to acid, and good fellowship to hatred.
