Fresh Hell

Fire Exit Theatre
Calgary

Fresh Hell
By Conni Massing
Directed by Jeany Van Meltebeke

Three imagined encounters between Joan of Arc and American writer Dorothy Parker – one renowned as a warrior saint, the other for her savagely witty assessments of humanity. Now facing death, with only words to defend themselves, both believe they are living in the darkest of times. Joan has failed to drive the oppressors out of her country; Dorothy despairs about the world and her own legacy. But as these two wrangle about the nature of faith and the challenges of a creative life, they may actually discover reasons to hope.

Suite Surrender

Swamp Rat Experience
  • Keyano Theatre
Fort McMurray

Suite Surrender, written by Michael McKeever, takes place in 1942 when two of Hollywood's biggest divas descend upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel to perform in a USO show - assistants, luggage, and legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance... that is, until they are somehow assigned to the same suite! Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round out this fantastically funny riot of a love note to the classic farces of the 30s and 40s.

Venue: Keyano Recital Theatre

Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof‘s universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
