United Players – Wittenberg by David Davalos, directed by Adam Henderson

November 10, 2022 - December 4, 2022

1517. The fall semester at the University of Wittenberg finds the professors and students at crisis: Hamlet, young Prince of Denmark, has read a revolutionary scientific theory of Copernicus that threatens the order of the universe and Hamlet’s peace of mind. His professor of Philosophy, Doctor Faustus, has decided to make an honest woman of Helen, once “of Troy,” AKA “The Eternal Feminine,” but she prefers her freedom. And Hamlet’s professor of Theology, Martin Luther, is outraged at the abusive practices of the Church to which he has sworn obedience.

Davalos’s 21st-century satire explores the issues of faith and skepticism with a wickedly modern sense of humour in this prequel to both Hamlet and Doctor Faustus.

Wittenberg, stars Matthew Bissett, Misha Kobiliansky, Dylan Nouri, Deborah Vieyra and Jake Anthony. It is directed by Adam Henderson, with technical direction & lighting design by Michael Methot, set design by Emily Dotson, costumes by Julie White, sound by Christopher King, properties by Josina deBree, with stage management by Emma Graveson, and is produced by Nancy Caldwell.

Wittenberg runs  from Nov 11 – Dec 4, Thursday to Saturday at 8 pm, Sunday at 2 pm. Performances will be available in person only. Talkbacks: Thursday 17th and Sunday 20th November.

United Players – Thy Neighbour’s Wife by Tara Beagan, directed by Melissa Oei with mentor director Tamara McCarthy

January 19, 2023 - February 12, 2023

Canada, 1915.  This play centres around the true story of the first woman who was sentenced to hang in Alberta for a crime that, when a similar one was committed by a man, was seen as “defending the decency of his home”.  A frank and scrutinizing look at marriage, manners, money and murder.

United Players – Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen, translated and adapted by Errol Durbach, directed by Moya O’Connell

Mesmerizing, enigmatic, destructive, Hedda Gabler is one of the theatre’s most infamous characters.  Returning from her honeymoon, already bored with her marriage, Hedda finds herself caught between the brilliant but dissolute Ejlert Lovborg and the clutches of the predatory Judge Brack. As a shocking path of destruction unfolds, there can be only one outcome…

Shalem’s Fair

May 5, 2023 - May 13, 2023

Written and directed by Lee Jay Bamberry

Rhoda, the unsuspecting lady hero is on her way to the train station to collect her husband, or so she thinks. With a touch of cosmic absurdity Rhoda encounters a series of endearing characters on their way to the County Fair, or so she thinks. They all seem to know her and honour her accordingly as she struggles to connect the dots trying to make sense of everything that is unfolding. This timeless tale is spun with comedy and heartfelt moments all pointing to the mystery of who Rhoda really is, where she is going, and what is going to happen next? As a “touching comedy” that offers pause for thought about death, dementia, and our true heroes of yesteryear, Shalem’s Fair is a real place especially in the minds of those who believe in the miraculous.

United Players – A Flea in Her Ear by Georges Feydeau, adapted by David Ives, directed by Brian Parkinson

June 1, 2023 - June 25, 2023

Feydeau’s classic farce involving a complex series of mistaken identities, clandestine assignations and misplaced but explosive jealousies, all happening at breakneck speed. The update by

Ives into the twentieth century serves to heighten the sexual allusions which make the play so hilarious.
