United Players – She Sells Sea Shells by Helen Eastman directed by Sarah Rodgers

Thursday thru Saturday, January 23rd to February 13th at 8:00 pm
Matinees: All Sundays at 2:00 pm (January 24 and 31, February 7 and 14)

When she was twelve, Mary Anning discovered the first ichthyosaur, and she became an important, if forgotten, paleontologist. Known primarily from the children’s tongue-twister that she inspired, Anning’s life challenges us to see the beauty buried in the stones beneath our feet.

YOUTHEATRE  MOVEMENT  SOCIETYComplicit_JAC_PR.v1

YOUTHEATRE Movement Productions are in the middle of their 2021 Tour of a breathtaking original play called COM.PLIC.IT

Author Brief

For the last two decades Lee Jay Bamberry has written, directed, and toured plays that pack a punch, with edge and bite. With such themes as: addiction, dementia, abduction, human trafficking, and now the sordid Residential School chapter of Canadian history.
Lee Jay’s indigenous heritage is from his Grandmother, Sarah Bernard, being a full blood Mi’Kmaq from Burnt Church, New Brunswick, where he spent many of his childhood summers growing up.

United Players – The Here and This and Now by Glenn Waldron directed by Lauren Taylor

Four pharmaceutical reps work on their pitch for the miracle drug they are asked to sell. This play lays bare the ethics of marketing medications, where style and substance must compete with each other. Things take a darkly comic turn when it turns out the drug could have saved the world.

What the Buddha Never Taught by Martin Adam

July 2, 2021 - July 11, 2021

Guest Company – What the Buddha Never Taught

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.
