A Lie of the Mind

LIE OF MIND

A LIE OF THE MIND 
by Sam Shepard

May 3 – May 21

Sam Shepard’s A Lie of the Mind is a play filled with enormous vitality, and humor. Prior to the play’s opening, the action is set in motion by a severe domestic beating that leaves Beth, a young wife, brain damaged; at the hands of her husband Jake. The story is one of shifting focus between the two families – that of the victim and that of the abuser – as we experience how family members cope with the aftermath of Beth’s injury. This is a play that does not shy away from taking a gritty look at an issue all too commonly ignored.

“Creative use of the small space….With the focus on acting he [director David MacPherson] solicited strong moments from the company…  For anyone who admires Sam Shepard’s plays… this is a wonderful chance…” Monica Prendergast, CBC Radio

Anyone who has ever loved or lived in a family will understand the primordial tug to the heart of ties that entwine and cannot be loosed…   A Lie of The Mind is rich and rewarding theatre—with an excellent script and direction, experienced actors and a devotion to the moment.”
Janis Lacouvee – I Have My Own Life to Live  – For full review

Mating Dance of the Werewolf

MATING DANCE

MATING DANCE OF THE WEREWOLF 
by Mark Stein

Sept 27 – Oct 15

Ken is a detective who suspects he is being stalked. Oddly enough, he thinks he likes it. When finally confronted by Abby, a painfully shy young woman with a disarmingly forthright manner, he is unable to resist his profound attraction to her. Despite warning signs, he soon finds himself deeply involved in the most terrifying relationship he could never have imagined. Mating Dance of the Werewolf is an unorthodox romance that looks at how infatuation influences our willingness to suspend disbelief. This is a play that will nudge you into the Halloween spirit.

“A refreshing take on the werewolf genre… everyone has their moments… Fraser-Buchanan steals every scene with an intense, wild, feral, wantonness… I was hooked… quirky, humourous.”  CBC On the Island  David Lennam

 “A giant theatrical mystery, charged with danger from the get-go… the cast of Mating Dance of the Werewolf fully embrace a world where darkest desires and urges run amok… take a walk on the wild side with them and experience the exhilarating thrill of the hunt.”  I Have My Own Life to Live  Janis Lacouvee
