Shadow Theatre Presents Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike

Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike
By Christopher Durang

Winner Of The Tony Award For Outstanding New Play 2013

Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia bicker and pine about the dashed dreams and squandered hopes of their lives in the sunny Morning Room of the family farmhouse in Bucks County, PA. When their movie-star sister, Masha, suddenly swoops in with her new boy-toy, Spike, old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Joined on the scene by their prophetic housekeeper Cassandra, and a dewy aspiring actress named Nina - whose youthful prettiness troubles Masha’s precariously propped-up vanity – they prepare to attend a neighbor’s costume party and the stage is set for a giddy farce on Chekhovian themes.

Northern Light Theatre Presents 19 Weeks

19 Weeks (Canadian Premiere)
By Emily Steel
Co-production with Azimuth Theatre
Featuring Vanessa Sabourin

The words are rattling because the story is real. Everyone knows someone who has had an abortion or lost a pregnancy – even if they don’t talk about it. In 2016, playwright Emily Steel had a termination after her baby was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. This is her story, told honestly and publicly, because there are so many more stories out there. We want 19 Weeks to be part of a bigger conversation.

“I made the decision that I was going to tell people the truth about what happened because keeping quiet about such a traumatic experience would have felt like even more of a burden. My fear was that people would think I was a horrible, heartless person, and I had to process those feelings myself, but how people are going to perceive you cannot alter your decisions about the course of your life.

For the most part, my fears did not come true. The response of so many women was to tell me stories of their own abortions or miscarriages, and that was a huge part of the inspiration for the play. There is a lot of controversy about late abortions, but it’s not until you go through that process that you realize how much time it can take to do what you think is the most responsible thing.” – Emily Steel

Lungs
By Duncan Macmillian
Directed by Jon Lachlan Stewart

Starring Chris Bullough and Beth Graham

The world is getting hotter, there’s unrest overseas—the seas themselves aren’t very calm—and one couple is thinking about having a child. Lungs is a smart and funny drama that follows a couple through the surprising lifecycle of their relationship as they grapple with questions of family and change, hope, betrayal, happenstance, and the terrible pain that you can only cause the people you love.
