The Boor is a one-act farce written by Anton Chekhov that explores the exaggerated ideals of men and women in the early 20th century. Mrs. Popov, a widow grieving her husband’s death, has locked herself in her home for seven months. No matter how diligently her footman begs her to come out, she remains consumed by her bereavement. To her dismay, a Mr. Smirnov barges into her home and demands she pay him the debts her deceased husband owed him. The play goes through several stages of grief; beginning with denial, leading into rage, bargaining, frustration, and ending with some heart. By broadening the irrationality and complexity of characters, this play illustrates the amazingly diverse and chaotic reality of human relationships.

I’m Just a Girl: Stephanie and Elizabeth are gonna do some sketch comedy about being pals and being gals. I’m Just a Girl (and Life is a Nightmare) is series of satirical skits and general hilarity from your favourite foolish feminists. A

Revelations (Not That Kind) reveals long-held secrets that these mothers kept to protect their daughters…and to protect themselves.

In Lori Savory’s ‘What You Sow’, Rosene hoped that her secret would keep history from repeating.

In Trudy Morgan-Cole’s ‘Every Good and Perfect Gift,’ Elsie’s secret could be the key to her daughter’s future.

In Christine Hennebury’s ‘Understanding,’ discovering her mother’s secret solves the mystery that has shaped Ally’s life. A

My Three Husbands and Other Dating Stories: Autobiographical tales of the ups, downs – and embarrassing tumbles – of modern relationships and online dating. A

In Your Eyes: A father and son’s relationship changes in the face of dementia causing both men to learn and accept different ways to appreciate life and each other. A work in development from playwright Paul David Power.

An Image Now of You Then: Alan had a brother, and now he has a tattoo. Does the tattoo really embody his memory of his brother, or is it a vain attempt at a memorial? Tattoos, photos, recordings, letters – all things we bring to the future from the past. But are these things truly permanent, when even we ourselves aren’t?
