Private Lives
by Nöel Coward 
Directed by Susan Monaghan
September 18-22 & 25-29, 2012
Noel Coward wrote this smashing play in 1930 for his chum, legendary stage actress Gertrude Lawrence. But the genius author/actor crafted a script which is now acknowledged as a true descendant of Shakespeare’s love comedies, and father to the screwball and romantic comedies we enjoy today. Amanda and Elyot, divorced veterans of a tempestuous marriage (to each other), each arrive in France for a second honeymoon with a new partner, and clash on the terrace of their hotel. "Ill met by moonlight" doesn’t begin to describe it.

Mary’s Wedding
by Stephen Massicotte
Directed by Wendy Wagner
November 6-10 & 13-17, 2012

It is the eve of Mary’s wedding, a night filled with dreams: dreams of love, dreams of war, and dreams of what might be. When Mary and Charlie find each other sheltering in a barn during a thunderstorm, a tentative young love is born. But it is 1914 and the world is headed into the uncertainty and turbulence of war. A poignant story of innocent first love and the vicissitudes of fate, this award-winning Canadian play has been produced over 70 times worldwide.

Rabbit Hole
by David Lindsay-Abaire
Directed by Brooke Keneford
February 5-9 & 12-16, 2013
Becca and Howie Corbett are a happily married couple whose perfect world is forever changed when their young son, Danny, is killed by a car. Becca finds solace in a mysterious relationship with Jason, the teenage driver of the car that killed Danny. Becca’s fixation with Jason pulls her away from memories of Danny, while Howie immerses himself in the past, seeking refuge in outsiders who offer him something Becca is unable to give. The Corbetts, both adrift, make surprising and dangerous choices as they choose a path that will determine their fate.

Harvey
by Mary Chase
Directed by Peter Williams
March 26-30 &
April 2-6, 2013
Elwood P. Dowd is a laid-back, charming, friendly, generous, and generally cheerful middle-aged man. The only problem? His best friend is a six foot tall invisible rabbit! Join us in this classic, warm-hearted 1944 Pulitzer prize-winning comedy, as relevant today as when it was written, while it tries to deal with the age-old issue of how much happiness and imagination do we give up in order to conform to societal expectations.

A Flea in Her Ear
by Georges Feydeau  translated by David Ives
Directed by Jim Holmes
May 14-18 & 21-25, 2013
The greatest of all French farces and perhaps the greatest farce ever written. Modern English and French bedroom farce was born with this 1907 tale of Madame Chantebise who, suspecting her husband of having an affair, tries to entrap him by means of an anonymous love letter suggesting a rendezvous at the disreputable Frisky Puss Hotel. David Ives’s new adaptation maintains the original’s dazzling plot while communicating Feydeau’s playful use of language.
