Long Weekend
A very 1990’s comedy…by Canada’s favourite playwright.

It’s 1994, and two couples get together for a weekend getaway that goes hilariously awry. Max and Wynn Trueman and Roger and Abby Nash have been friends for years, but when they come together at Max and Wynn's new vacation home, grievances, desires and secrets spill out, sparking nonstop laughs. Canada’s most popular playwright, Norm Foster, skewers marriage and friendship over a long weekend that goes anything but smoothly.

every brilliant thing

A unique theatrical experience…celebrating the everyday joys of life.

In order to help his mother, a young boy creates a list of everything that brings joy to their lives. A list that grows every passing year as he moves through his own life. Join us on a wonderful journey that focuses on finding the joy in everyday moments and appreciating the simple pleasures around us. Often hilarious and always uplifting, Every Brilliant Thing is a rare event: a comedy about loss that will captivate your imagination.
