Stones in His Pockets

Rosebud Theatre and School of the Arts
Rosebud

Two down-on-their-luck men in a down-on-its-luck Irish town are given what they hope is a chance at the good life. Jake and Charlie have been cast as extras in a Hollywood movie – a shaft of light through the clouds of their dreary rural existence. Like most film sets this one is rife with drama on stage and off – some hilarious and some heartbreaking – as the American cast and crew try to immerse themselves in Jake and Charlie’s culture and vice-versa. And the boys have big Irish dreams that might come true if they can just get their screenplay into the hands of the right person.

Driving Miss Daisy

Stage West
Calgary

Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play.

“The play is sweet without being mawkish, ameliorative, without being sanctimonious.” —NY Times

“…a perfectly poised and shaped miniature on the odd-couple theme.” —NY Post.

“DRIVING MISS DAISY is a total delight.” —NY Daily News.

Adapted into the multiple award-winning movie starring Morgan Freeman in 1989.

This Pulitzer Prize winning drama follows Daisy Werthan, a rich southern, sharp-tongued Jewish widow of seventy-two who has just demolished another car. Her son informs her that she now must rely on the services of a chauffeur. The person he hires for the job is a thoughtful, unemployed black man, Hoke Coleburn.

What begins as a contentious and hostile pairing soon blossoms into a profound, life-altering friendship that transcends all the societal boundaries placed between them.

As Annie’s obsession takes a dark turn, Paul is forced to write a new Misery novel, and realizes Annie has no intention of letting him go. He is writing as if his life depends on it - and it does.

The House of Bernarda Alba

Sage Theatre
Calgary

The father of a prominent family is dead. Five women are forced by their mother to live inside their house for eight years and mourn their loss without having any outside contact. In the intense heat of summer, the conflicts, repression , and secrets of the house are unchained, while the walls collapse in fear.

Written in 1936, The House of Bernarda Alba is considered one of the masterpieces of Spanish theatre. Queer playwright Federico Garcia Lorca wrote this all-female play as an analogy of the sexual and emotional repression he experienced throughout his life.

In this new exciting production, the text is modernized for a cast of all 2SLGBTQIA+ performers to give life to Lorca's characters. Sage Theatre's production of 'The House of Bernarda Alba' is a relevant and riveting examination of the oppression and marginalization that members of the queer community continue to bravely battle in today's society.

O'KOSI (oh-goh-see)

Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society
Calgary

O’KOSI, a Blackfoot word meaning, ‘In the fall, when we gather’, is a visually spectacular production filled with music and poetry and features a cast of Blackfoot actors. O’KOSI is directed by Michelle Thrush and supported by a majority Indigenous design team.

O’KOSI depicts how Indigenous People are healing from the multidimensional and multi-generational effects of the signing of Treaty 7 and the Indian Act and how the repercussions of these policies have been passed to parents, sons and daughters.

Set in Mohkinstsis from 1877 to 2077, O’KOSI imagines a shift toward breaking colonial systems, reuniting families and healing communities. It is a love letter between parent and child.

Dearly Departed

Wetaskiwin Theatre Society/Waterworks Players
Wetaskiwin

This hilarious show is back by popular demand. When we were forced to shut down and cancel all upcoming shows, due to COVID, we were in the middle of this fun show. People who saw it before are getting tickets to see it again and others have waited patiently for a chance to see it for the first time.

The show takes place in the South and the Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South is seldom tidy and always hilarious.

Amidst the chaos an eccentric community pulls together to help each other out in their hour of need.

This show is perfect for a fun “night out” or a matinee show after brunch with friends. We always have popcorn and serve wine and both can be taken into the auditorium.

Guilt

One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre
Calgary

A show party with jokes!

CBC radio host and award-winning actor, writer and performer Diane Flacks comes to the Big Secret Theatre with an all-new darkly comedic solo performance.

An exploration of regret, disaster, and accountability from the perspective of a self-sacrificing Jewish mother who initiates a marriage explosion. It begins in a drunken comedic style and proceeds to do a deep dive into the unshakable monster that is Guilt.

Diane has been hailed for her ability to mix humour and pathos in an intoxicating brew, and serve it like the spicy mama she is.

Dark, funny and poignant, Diane Flacks will captivate audiences in this must-see hit.

Only four performances.
