Director: Krista Jackson
Cast: Stephanie Sy, Eric Blais, Cory Wojcik and Trish Cooper
Creative Consultant: Lara Rae
Set in a cottage north of a Canadian city, an adaptation by zone41 theatre's Matthew Handscombe. Eyolf picks up some of the threads Ibsen mentions but doesn't develop: disability and gender identity, and follows closely the big one he does: strained familial relationships.
The adaptation is the product of a Jean Gascon - Tyrone Guthrie Award from the Stratford Festival.
This is a play about expectations; what we want and the friction that occurs when we want for those closest to us. It takes place on the day an extended family receive an Autism spectrum diagnosis for their son.

hedda gabler BY HENRIK IBSEN
A NEW TRANSLATION BY PER BRASK
DIRECTOR Krista Jackson
Hedda returns from honeymoon with Tesman. She is bored with him and bored with life. If she can't control her own life she wants to control someone else. She wants Løvborg to kill himself as a noble sacrifice to beauty. It all turns scandalously ugly and she kills herself.

From his late-life haven in Jamaica, Noël Coward – actor, playwright, composer, lyricist, director, novelist and all-round 20th century phenomenon – looks back on his life and reflects on his feelings about his career, his talent, his country, his countrymen, his friends, his lovers, his mother, the theatre and on his exploits as a spy in the Second World War. He also sings a revealing selection of his own songs.
