Waiting for Godot

“What are we doing here, that is the question,” says Vladimir as he and Estragon await their rendezvous with the mysterious Godot. The question takes on a cosmic significance as the two hapless tramps struggle to make sense of their predicament, abandoned in a universe of comic absurdity shot through with moments of nameless terror.

Mary Stuart

Mary Stuart, former Queen of Scots, is imprisoned in England, where her very existence poses a threat, both personal and political, to her Protestant cousin, Elizabeth I.

Taking Shakespeare

An aging and disenchanted professor whose career is on the wane agrees to tutor the university president’s son, Murph, who is floundering in his freshman English course and in his life. A chasm of difference lies between teacher and student, yet as they explore Othello together, both draw new strength from Shakespeare’s extraordinary insights.

The Thrill

Successful lawyer, fiery activist and self-described “bedpan crip” Elora Dixon uses a well-aimed banana cream pie to protest a public appearance by Julian Walker, a celebrity champion of the right-to-die movement. But this first meeting of two passionate souls on opposite sides of a painfully divisive issue has consequences that neither has anticipated.

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.
