RabbitHole Launch Small

RABBIT HOLE

Written by David Lindsay-Abaire
Directed by Chris McKinnon

Becca and Howie Corbett have everything a family could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart. Rabbit Hole charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places, and for a path that will lead them back into the light of day. Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rabbit Hole is a surprisingly funny and heart-rending portrait of one family’s tragedy and the trials of navigating the unimaginable.

Performance Dates: September 26-28, October 3-5 & 10-12, 2019
Baby Grand Theatre, Kingston Grand Theatre, 218 Princess Street

OddCouple Launch Small

THE ODD COUPLE (FEMALE VERSION)

Written by Neil Simon
Directed by Matt Davis

Unger and Madison are at it again but this time it’s Olive and Florence, not Felix and Oscar. Neil Simon creates the same hilarious jabs but this time with an all female cast playing Trivial Pursuit and not poker! Hilarity continues when then Costazuela brothers add to the confusion. All in all the results will be nothing but laughter in this female version of your two favourite guys.

Performance Dates: January 23-25, January 30-31, February 1 & 6-8, 2020
Kingston Yacht Club, 1 Maitland Street, Kingston

 JITTERS

Written by David French
Directed by Mae Whalen

David French's Jitters is a warm-hearted, lively and truly hilarious examination of backstage shenanigans by one of Canada's leading playwrights.

Domino Theatre, 52 Church Street, Kingston

TRANSLATIONS

Written by Brian Friel
Directed by Krista Garrett

From the acclaimed playwright of Faith Healer and Dancing at Lughnasa, this hauntingly lyrical play is about nothing less than language as the soul of a nation. Set in 1833 in Ireland, it tells of the British army's campaign to replace the native Gaelic place names with English ones in an attempt to end centuries of fighting by setting up a political union based on a common language. Against a beautiful backdrop, Lieutenant Yolland, a British soldier, falls in love with Maire, a peasant girl, and with Ireland. Their romance sparks displeasure and anger in the Irish and English alike, and when Yolland goes missing, the mutual revenge taken threatens to tear the countryside apart.

Performance Dates: May 7-9, 14-16, 2020
