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.

James Ehnes Returns

Oct. 10 and Oct. 12. Launching the era of nineteenth-century Romanticism with unprecedented strength and breadth, Beethoven’s “Heroic” Symphony set a gold standard for symphonic composition. Countless composers have tried to equal it—and never have. Created at the outbreak of World War II, English composer Benjamin Britten’s Violin Concerto reflects the turbulent spirit of the time.

Come for: The Times of London praised violinist James Ehnes for “playing of phenomenal control, allied to musicianship of the highest order.” He performs English composer Benjamin Britten’s Violin Concerto—created at the outbreak of World War II, it reflects the turbulent spirit of the time.

And more: Audience-favourite Stéphane Denève returns to lead Beethoven’s ground-breaking “Eroica” symphony.
