Screwball Comedy written by Norm Foster – Presented by Royal Canadian Theatre Company – Directed by Ellie King

May 17, 2022 - May 22, 2022

It’s 1938 and Jeff Kincaid, star reporter, is falling down on the job of writing for a major newspaper.  Plucky young Mary Hayes arrives in the editor’s office to apply for a job.  Bosco, the crusty editor, sends her and Jeff out together to report on the upcoming weddings of a society dame and her very strange son. If Jeff writes the better story, he gets to keep his job. If Mary wins, she will replace the ace newshound.
But all is not as it seems, and Jeff and Mary find themselves constantly at odds as they try to solve the mystery, all while dealing with a succession of highly eccentric and very funny characters.

Hilarious Hollywood stereotypes, sizzling, super-fast dialogue plus a strange murder mystery colour this affectionate and brilliantly realised spoof, written by one of Canada’s own most successful and popular playwrights.

United Players – Vietgone by Qui Nguyen, co-directed by Keltie Forsyth and Louisa Phung

June 3, 2022 - June 26, 2022

Meet Qui. He describes two Vietnamese refugees who fall in love in a camp in Arkansas. A story of what it means to lose everything in a way – family, language, country – and yet find the strength to build a new life in a foreign land. Prejudice, immigration, ninjas and hip hop can’t stand in the way of the playwright’s parents getting together.

What the Buddha Never Taught

June 30, 2022 - July 10, 2022

A ROCK OPERA!

Stage Play by Martin T. Adam

Music by Marc Atkinson and Martin T. Adam

What the Buddha Never Taught is a musical celebration of the western encounter with Buddhism. Based on the book by Tim Ward, our story is set in a fictional international monastery populated by an assortment of western practitioners. The play takes audiences on a high-spirited musical ride through uncharted philosophical and spiritual waters. Eastern and western horizons fuse and open into silence.

A suspicious suicide greets an idealistic Canadian philosophy student upon arrival at an international Buddhist monastery, upsetting his plans for a life of quiet meditation. Intimations of murder, romance, and religious fascism wreak havoc in the young seeker’s mind as illusions are shattered and enlightenment achieved.
