One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (January 11-27, 2007)

A Comedy/Drama adapted by Dale Wasserman from the novel by Ken Kesey

“Funny, touching and exciting – the stuff of great theatre!” – N.Y. Daily News

McMurphy is a charming, devil-may-care rogue who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than work in a prison. He takes over the yard, and he accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years – a presumed deaf and dumb man talks and others move out of introversion. He stages a revolt and makes demands on behalf of the patients. This, he suddenly learns, is a mistake. His charm does not work on the head nurse, however, but only aggravates her antagonism towards him.

A Delicate Balance (November 16 – December 2, 2006)

A Comedy/Drama by Eward Albee

The Diary of Anne Frank (March 9-25, 2006)

A Drama by Goodrich and Hackett

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Critic’s Circle Award and virtually every other coveted prize of the theatre!

This new adaptation, recently presented on Broadway, brings the horrors of the Holocaust to a new generation. Anne Frank was the youngest of eight Jews, who for two years and one month hid in a cramped attic over a warehouse in order to escape the Gestapo. Anne allows us to vividly experience her story through a diary she began on her thirteenth birthday. It is through her words, memories and beliefs that we experience this historic story first hand.

The Miracle Worker (January 12-28, 2006)

A Drama by William Gibson


This stirring dramatization of the true-life story of Helen Keller is a heart-warming tale that shines as a triumph of the human spirit. Nobody knows what the ultimate fate of Helen, blind and mute, might have been had she not come under the care and tutelage of Annie Sullivan. Only Annie realizes there is a mind waiting to be rescued from its dark, tortured silence. This play includes some of the most turbulent, violent, and emotion-packed scenes ever presented on the stage!

The Lark (May 19 – June 4, 2005)

A Drama by Jean Anouilh, adapted by Lillian Hellman

A picture of a moment that is immortal in history!

This visually stunning play about Joan of Arc tells this simple girl’s story from two points of view. One of them is how we now look at this tale as a piece of history, knowledgeable of how Joan’s blundering captors unwittingly created a martyr who became forever a symbol of courage and faith. The other viewpoint has been to try to imagine what it must have been like to have been Joan herself. Divorcing it from the confinements of time, sequence and space, the story moves backward or forward without a jar. It begins with her trial and her tale of the voices that set her forth to save France from the English.

The Lion In Winter (March 24 – April 9, 2005)

A Drama by James Goldman

A modern dress version of the perennial favourite!

Henry II of England has had three sons by Eleanor of Aquitane – Richard, Geoffrey and John. He wants to keep the kingdom together after his death, but since all three want to rule, it is likely to be torn apart by revolution. Divorced wife Eleanor is invited for Christmas in hopes that succession plans may be defined. But Henry favours the youngest while Eleanor promotes the eldest, leaving Geoffrey to play both ends against the middle and hopefully come out on top. This matchless king and queen give us an evening of barbed humour and repeated thrusts of delight.

All My Sons (December 2-18, 2004)

A Drama by Arthur Miller

Winner of the Drama Critics’ Award for the best new American play of the season

During World War II, Joe Keller and Herbert Deever ran a machine shop which sold aeroplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts, causing the deaths of many men. Keller went free and made a great deal of money. The love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever, returned from the war to find his father in prison and his father’s partner free, are set in a structure of almost unbearable power. The climax, showing the reaction of a son to his guilty father, is a fitting conclusion to a play electrifying in its intensity.

Our Town (March 11-27, 2004)

A Drama by Thornton Wilder

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Our Town is one of the most popular and enduring pieces of twentieth century American theatre! This classic depicts life in a New Hampshire village in 1901. A day in the lives of these good people and all the inherent human passions are shown to us. Love and marriage, success and failure, triumph and joy, death and sorrow ! And we come to find that the past cannot be re-lived. One of the sagest, warmest, and most deeply human scripts to have come out of the American theatre!
