At the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. November 6, 2013
As the evenings grow colder we reach for the thermostat, light the fireplace or throw another log on the woodstove. But on Wednesday, November 6, almost a hundred and fifty men, women and kids cozied up in the Shadbolt Centre Studio Theatre.

Relatively Speaking

At Performing Arts Lodge until December 1, 2013
It seems only yesterday that Alan Ayckbourn was a hot new playwright writing scathingly funny plays about marriage, infidelity and the British middle class. I remember loving another early play of his – Absurd Person Singular, written in 1975 – and being amazed at how Ayckbourn manipulated us into laughing until it really wasn’t funny anymore.

The Woman in Black

At Little Mountain Gallery (26th and Main) October 31-November 2, November 5-9 and November 12-16
No tricks, all treats at the Hallowe’en night opening of The Woman in Black. Ghoulishly costumed partyers and exploding firecrackers outside along Main Street added to the ghostly tale of Mr. Arthur Kipps.
