The Shadow in the Water

This play by local award-winning playwright David Elendune – and directed by award winning-director Ian Case – was a recent sold-out hit at the Victoria Fringe Festival. It is a highly personal and poignant tale of love, loss, and sharks… for the event that simmers under the surface of the play, and drives its themes, is the 1916 Jersey Shore shark attacks (long reputed to be the inspiration for the movie Jaws).  As Mary nears the end of her life, she immerses herself in a retrospective journey, guided by Sharon; a mysterious presence, and necessary witness.  The Shadow in the Water reminds us that our experiences, for better or worse, are what have made us who we are.  Will Mary embrace her experiences and come to terms with a life full of both rewards and regrets?  David Elendune – with great empathy – helps us to understand the complexity of life lived.

“So, smile in the room, and cry in the corridor, for it’s another beautiful day in Hell.” (from the play)

David’s play,  Good Night Uncle Joe is playing in England and Sweden this year, and his play,  The Day Before Tomorrow has recently be awarded mentorship at the Belfry Theatre.

East of Berlin

In 2007, Hannah Moscovitch burst upon the Canadian theatre scene with this, her first produced full length play. Governor General award-winning playwright Moscovitch questions redemption, love, guilt, and the sins of the father in East of Berlin. This is one of her most emotionally gripping works. As young Rudi uncovers the mystery of his father’s past, his own present and future are forever altered. Sarah, the young daughter of a Holocaust victim, enters the Rudi’s world, and the growing closeness between them is challenged as Rudi uncovers the role his father played in Sarah’s tragedy.

“touches the soul and brings the past to life… Theatre Inconnu has outdone itself”

Commencing & Subway – 2 one-act plays by Jane Shepard

Tickets for Commencing and Subway will go on sale online in early September.

Jane Shepard has crafted two wonderfully entertaining one-act plays that explore with humour and empathy the need to share the human experience with another. Expect laugh-out-lout moments interspersed with heart warming insights and edge of your seat suspense. In Commencing, a misunderstanding leads to a highly comical situation in which two women find their notions of gender identity challenged by an intense personal connection. A similar theme, with more serous undertones, is explored in Subway, as a chance encounter between two women pushes them to weigh expectations against vulnerability.

“I’ve seen two great one-acts in my life, [Edward Albee’s] Zoo Story and this one [Commencing].” –NYTheatre.com
“Edgy, original, and with a darkly comic humanity… Jane writes incredibly rich and truthful female characters not often seen on stage.”  theatermania.com

The Black Rider – The Casting of the Magic Bullets

Tickets for The Balck Rider will go on sale shortly after the close of Commencing and Subway.

A few years ago Theatre Inconnu mounted the Tom Waits’ musical Alice. Since then we have been eager to once again bring the oh-so-wonderfully-eclectic music of this master back to our stage; this time his tunes being supported by the deliciously poetic and sensual script of the great beat poet, William S. Burroughs. Theatre Network aptly describes the work as such:
“It is a wickedly sensuous world where nothing is what it seems: the devil sings, the animals laugh and the walls are painted with blood. A poetic and fantastical folk-tale comes to life in the form of a bizarre and macabre musical, created by rock icon Tom Waits, beat poet William S. Burroughs…  To win the hand of his true love, Wilhelm makes a dangerous pact: a pact with the devil himself. He eagerly accepts the devil’s enchanted bullets, taking aim for a shot that just can’t miss!” Theatre Network
