NOT the Maltese Falcon, NOT the Sam Spade Seagull ... this is The Hammet Hawk! This old-fashioned ‘radio play’ in full costume, with sound effects galore, is set somewhere in the 1920s to 40s and takes place within a run-down museum whose glory days are long gone — or are they?
After all, the museum is hosting a gala this very night to unveil the famous Hammet Hawk - a priceless artifact ripe for the stealing. Join us inside the museum and the minds of so many possible thieves and motives!

As children, Joey and Michel used to stage themselves in shows that they would present to their family and friends. Difficult, otherwise, to display their true colors in the working-class Quebec of the 60s and 70s where they grew up. To escape this harsh reality, Michel and his brother Joey found their way into the art scene. Joey embarked on a busy acting career in Vancouver, while Michel shone on the Montréal drag scene. Then came the ultimate liberation: Michel would become Michelle, the woman she had always been, deep down … until the day when external forces overruled her true identity. Is it possible to live fully when you don’t fit the roles society imposes on you?
This first autobiographical solo by actor Joey Lespérance paints a complex and nuanced portrait of a marginal and courageous existence. Directed by Esther Duquette, this powerful statement brings to life the lost dream of Joey’s “bro-sister” Michel(le), who always wanted to be in theatre. May their memory shine on our stage to eclipse the injustice.
October 26th to 28th at 7:30pm

Join us for our production of The Spitfire Grill!
Based on the hit 1996 film, The Spitfire Grill is a heartwarming and inspirational musical tale of redemption, perseverance and family. Set in a small Wisconsin town, the show features a gorgeous, soulful score.
A feisty parolee follows her dreams, based on a page from an old travel book, to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah's Spitfire Grill. The Grill is for sale, but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy convinces Hannah to raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the Grill wins. Soon, mail arrives by the wheelbarrow and things really start cookin' at the Spitfire Grill.*

He is working on a probability textbook and has invited the departmental secretary to his kitchen to help prepare the manuscript. Neither has ever been on a date. What are the odds that they will fall in love?
