Escape from Happiness

[singlepic id=61 w=300 h= float=left]

Comedy by Canadian playwright George F. Walker
Directed by Chalene Scott
November 12 to 28, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8pm

Escape from Happiness is the darkly comic tale of Nora’s struggle to keep her family afloat amid a sea of manic troubles. Her daughter Gail is pregnant by her live-in boyfriend Junior. He has gotten himself mixed up with a couple of the most loveable and incompetent crooks this side of the Keystone Cops. Of course the police arrive wondering what the wife of a former cop has in those suspicious bags in the basement where she is digging out a spare room for the kids. The husband has moved back in after many years’ absence and Nora’s other two daughters refuse to cross the threshold of her aging east side home until he goes back upstairs. These two women form a duo worthy of Laurel and Hardy and round out a hilarious mix of characters who will delight and infuriate you. (Some coarse language)

Director: Chalene Scott began her theatre training at a young age with Stage North in Fort St. John. After graduation she started training at Capilano University. After her diploma program and a year off, she finished her training with a Bachelor in Performing Arts and has directed shows for the IGNITE!

Love Letters

by A.R. Gurney

Feb 11-14, 2015

Looking for something special to do for Valentine’s Day on the North Shore? Take your date to “Love Letters.” It’s a story of a deep friendship and love between two people told through their letters to each other over the course of their lifetime. It stars a real life theatre couple, Pamela Jones and Bill Lawrie, who met on stage while doing a play on the North Shore almost ten years ago. “Love letters is a beautiful, poignant and often, very funny piece,” says Jones. “It’s simply staged and draws the audience in through captivating storytelling.” “It’s timely in an age when we’re all writing to each other via the Internet,” adds Lawrie. “When we write, we often convey our true feelings that we can’t talk about in person.” Written by American playwright and novelist A.R, Gurney; directed by Ryan Crocker, Stage Manager Darlene Manchester, Assistant Audrey Grisdale. Four nights only, runs February 11 to 14, Wed thru Sat at 8:00pm
