Antony and Cleopatra


by

William Shakespeare




Antony and Cleopatra stands as one of Shakespeare's most poetic plays. It is noted for its evocative word paintings and vivid hyperbole. It is also regarded by many as a problem play, presenting as it does the ambiguity and ambivalence of life without providing clear or comfortable answers. The two lovers presented in the play may be world leaders, but they are also, after all, only human beings, flawed and aging ones at that. We as human beings share their mortality; many of us recognize their strong feelings of jealousy, love, shame, and insecurity.





The Gondoliers



by

W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan


Rousing music and funny plot.

The Three Sisters



by

Anton Chekhov


First performed at the Moscow Art Theatre in 1901, The Three Sisters probes the lives and dreams of Olga, Masha, and Irina, former Muscovites now living in a provincial town from which they long to escape. Their hopes for a life more suited to their cultivated tastes and sensibilities provide a touching counterpoint to the relentless flow of compromising events in the real world. In this powerful play, a landmark of modern drama, Chekhov masterfully interweaves character and theme in subtle ways that make the work's climax seem as inevitable as it is deeply moving







The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night





by



Mark Haddon



Christopher Boone is 15. He knows "all the countries of the world and their capital cities and every prime number up to 7,507". He lives in Swindon with his father and Toby, his pet rat. He abhors all yellow and brown things, thinks he would make a good astronaut, and has never been further than the end of the road on his own until his discovery of the "murder" of his neighbour's dog turns him into an amateur detective.



The Charity that Began at Home:

A Comedy for Philanthropists





by
St John Hanken


"The Charity that Began at Home, a comedy by St. John Hankin, had me laughing and laughing all afternoon long." Toronto Globe and Mail . George Bernard Shaw called Hanken": "One of the masters of comedy among my playwright colleagues." The play tells the story of how one family?s all-consuming commitment to kindness has awful and amusing consequences that turns their household upside down.





Women Without Men




A workplace drama laced with biting humor, WOMEN WITHOUT MEN is set in the teacher's lounge of a private girls' boarding school in Ireland in the 1930s. The play explores the clash of conflicting natures and petty competitions that erupt amongst the school's cloistered teaching staff. Hazel Ellis began her theatrical career in the 1930s as a member of the acting ensemble of the Gate Theatre in Dublin. She went on to write two plays for the company, including WOMEN WITHOUT MEN which was produced at the Gate in 1938. Despite acclaim, the play was never published or revived
