Kanata Theatre's 36th Season (2004-2005)

by David Auburn
September 21-25 and September 28-October 2, 2004
Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer prize and Tony Award for Best Play. On the eve of her 25th birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now she must deal with her own volatile emotions and the discovery of a mysterious notebook that draws her into romance, and the most difficult problem of all: how much of her father's madness - or genius - will she inherit.

Ethan Claymore
by Norm Foster
November 16-20 and November 23-27, 2004
Just before Christmas, struggling egg farmer/artist Ethan Claymore meets a woman who could turn his life around, and receives a visit from his estranged, and recently-deceased, older brother. This play blends the softness of a Norman Rockwell winter scene with a touch of "Seinfeld" - a truly affectionate comedy. A story that warms the heart, coaxes the occasional tear, and paints the kind of world we think we deserve. This play could become a Christmas classic.

Dancing at Lughnasa
by Brian Friel
February 1-5 and February 8-12, 2005
Winner of the 1991 Tony Award for Best Play. A haunting play, Dancing at Lughnasa is Friel's tribute to the spirit and valour of the past and its people. A son remembers the five women who raised him, his mother and four maiden aunts. The sisters acquire their first radio, whose music transforms them from correct Catholic women to shrieking, stomping banshees. And he meets his father for the first time, a charming Welsh drifter who sweeps his mother away in an elegant dance across the fields.

Caught in the Net
by Ray Cooney
March 29-April 2 and April 5-9, 2005
This hilarious farce, the sequel to Run for Your Wife, finds our bigamist taxi driver, John Smith, still keeping both his families (one in Wimbledon and one in Streatham) happy and blissfully unaware of each other. But his teenage children - a girl by one wife and a boy by the other - have met on the Internet and are determined to meet in person, since they appear to have much in common. John lunges into a hell-hole of his own making in order to keep them apart.

You'll Get Used to It - The War Show
by Peter Colley
May 24-28 and May 31-June 4, 2005
We mark the 60th anniversary of VE Day and the opening of the National War Museum with this look at Canada at war as experienced by six soldiers and the women in their lives. Comedy, drama and song create the distilled memory of an era when life was made more precious by the realization that it could end at any moment.

and for the holiday season . . . .
