SEXY LAUNDRY

June 12 - June 23

Comedy by Michele Riml Directed by Derek Ritschel After twenty-five years of marriage, the emergence of love handles and receding hairlines, Alice and Henry have hit a physical plateau. With a copy of Sex for Dummies in hand, Alice convinces Henry to a weekend of alone time in the hopes of seducing him and unearthing her inner vixen. Henry, however, wants to keep things the way they are—comfortable and easy. Exploring every fantasy from leather to lace, Alice and Henry portray every couple’s desire to grow together but maintain individuality. *Adult language

EARLY AUGUST

July 3 - July 14

Comedy by Kate Lynch Directed by Mairi Babb The cast of a small town theatre company is feeling the usual doldrums of a long summer season, and their performances are starting to unravel. The company’s stage manager, Teddy, expects a slight performance drop-off, but her cast is heading towards an all-out collapse. Backstage, Teddy must straighten out their messy love lives, living situations and looming unemployment problems, all while the show goes on around them. No matter how bad it gets, one thing is certain – the show must go on!

HURRY HARD

July 24 - August 4

Comedy by Kristen Da Silva Directed by Sarah Phillips When Bill and Sandy’s marriage split up, so did their curling team – splintering off into a men’s team and a women’s team who begrudgingly share the ice at the Stayner Curling Club. Now, a medical emergency has left the men’s team short a player the day of the big Regional Bonspiel. If they have any hope of beating neighbouring Meaford and taking the trophy for Stayner, they’ll have to call a ceasefire on the war of the sexes and unite as one team.

PRAIRIE NURSE

August 14 - August 25

Comedy by Marie Beath Badian Directed by Audrey Dwyer Two Filipino nurses come to work at a small town Saskatchewan hospital in the late 1960s. Cultural clashes, personality differences, homesickness, and the amorous but dim-witted goalie from the local hockey team complicate the women’s lives. Based on the true story of her mother’s immigration to Canada, Badian’s play is part romantic comedy, part farce, and part cultural history.

LUNENBURG

September 11 - September 22

Comedy by Norm Foster Directed by Derek Ritschel When Iris Oulette inherits a house that she didn’t even know existed, she and her close friend, Natalie Whitaker, travel to the town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, to have a look at her new property. What follows is a series of world-changing surprises, heart-warming personal transformations, and a fall-down-funny romantic adventure. “A comedy that envelopes you in its warmth.” – Stage Door
