Lips Together, Teeth Apart

Lips Together, Teeth Apart

Nov. 14 - 17, 2012
Fred Thury Studio Theatre, 258 Vanier College

On the elegant deck of a beach house on Fire Island, a brother and sister and their respective spouses attempt to celebrate the Fourth of July with a gnawing uncertainty that makes their affluent habits and petty prejudices sizzle in the summer sun. In this unforgettable comedy, Terrence McNally does for the beach house what Chekhov did for the Russian country estate.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood

The Mystery of Edwin Drood

February 1 – 10, 2013
Fred Thury Studio Theatre, 258 Vanier College

This wildly warm-hearted theatrical experience kicks off when the Music Hall Royale, a hilariously loony Victorian musical troupe, "puts on" its flamboyant rendition of an unfinished Dickens mystery.  When Edwin Drood disappears mysteriously one stormy Christmas Eve, one has to wonder if he has been murdered.  And if so, then whodunnit?

The giddy playfulness of this play-within-a-play draws the audience toward one of Drood's most talked-about features, which allows the audience to vote on the solution as prelude to the most unusual and hilarious finale!

100 Reasons Why I Love You
Two couples debate the pros and cons of being in a relationship, but it getting together or breaking apart.

An abstract exploration of the creative process as two creators attempt to express themselves in the face of ongoing critical and philosophical reaction to their work.

My Very Own Normal Family
A family attempts to reach perfection as a family unit. But how far is too far when your family stops feeling like yours anymore?

A young man struggles to reconcile his aging father's religious ramblings after a lifetime of being an atheist. Could these ramblings ruin his father's legacy as a highly influential and well-respected scientist?
