Scarborough
by Fiona Evans (ENGLAND)
~Edinburgh Fringe First Award 2007

Directed by Ian Leung

This scorching little gem of a play is alive with forbidden desire and erotic tension. A dangerously charged romance between a fifteen-year-old and their teacher. Step into a faded hotel room where they are having an illicit weekend away. Amidst the peeling wallpaper, they laugh, quarrel and make love, but they don’t dare go out.  Fiona Evans’s electrifying portrayal of a dangerously charged romance was the show to see at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007.

Afterimage
By Robert Chafe (CANADA) 
~Winner of the 2010 Governor General’s Award for Drama 2010

Directed by Mieko Ouchi

Lise Lacoeur was used to being shunned by everyone around her. Her gift of seeing the future in flashes leaves her ostracized from her town and community. An accidental electrocution is the beginning of her unexpectedly forged family and seemingly disconnected events intertwine to tell a story of connectivity and belonging. Based on the short story by lauded novelist and poet Michael Crummey, Afterimage explores the connections built within both family and community, of finding a place to belong.

The Toxic Bus Incident
By Greg MacArthur (CANADA)
~2011 Siminovitch Nominee for Playwriting, Lee Playwright in Residence 

Directed by Heather Inglis 

Picture a safe Canadian city on an ordinary Saturday morning. A woman gets on a bus. She notices a foreign looking, dark-skinned man. He comes towards her and reaches into his coat pocket… Greg MacArthur explores the impact of terrorism on our lives in the relative safety of the west. Where does legitimate fear become crippling paranoia? Take a ride on the Toxic Bus to the place were fear becomes reality.
