Faith Healer

Three versions of the same story – but which one is true? This mesmerizing tale centres on a small-time faith healer who travels the countryside, miraculously curing the sick (or does he?) in every small town along the way. We also meet his wife (or is it his mistress?) who tells us her own tale of faith and healing; and his manager Teddy, who has his own version of events. Brian Friel is one of Ireland’s master playwrights, and Faith Healer one of his many worldwide successes.

The Flood Thereafter

A Canadian Stage Production in co-production with the Hopscotch Collective in association with the Theatre Department in the Faculty of Fine Arts at York University.

Part portrait of small-town Canada and part timeless fable, The Flood Thereafter is a magical play by Sarah Berthiaume, a rising star of Quebecois theatre. Every day, twenty-year-old June does an abrupt strip show in the gritty Emotions bar with all the men of the town watching and weeping. June’s relationship to the men stretches back to the sirens who ensnarled the mariners of ancient Greece, but when a young stranger arrives in town the tide begins to turn.

Peace in Our Time: A Comedy

Take Geneva, one of Shaw’s fascinating but thornier late plays, lend it a freewheeling, extravagant adaptation by one of Canada’s most well-respected playwrights, and presto! The result is a sharp, contemporary, political comedy where affairs of state meet the Three Stooges. The play opens in a dysfunctional diplomatic office prior to the Second World War and ends in The Hague at a trial of the world’s dictators. Between, you are taken on a totally manic ride.

Trifles (Lunchtime One-Acts)

Two gripping marital mysteries by two playwrights who helped bring modern drama to America. In Trifles, a man is found dead but his wife can’t explain the rope around his neck. An obvious whodunnit? Not according to the wives of the investigators. In A Wife for a Life (O’Neill’s first play), a husband seeks revenge for his wife’s infidelity. He meets a young man in love and is forced to reconsider the very marriage he seeks to defend. Two little-seen plays in one gem of an outing.
