2014/15 season announced!
By Duncan MacMillan
Directed by Jamie Dunsdon
February 5-14, 2015 @ Motel Theatre at Arts Commons
A young couple wants to have a baby…or do they? After all, there’s the planet to think of. Global warming and carbon footprints, which is to say nothing of terrorism and political strife. They want to have a child for the right reasons…and what ARE the right reasons? They’re not getting any younger, and a decision needs to be made soon, but which will destruct first – the planet, or the relationship?
“Duncan Macmillan’s distinctive, off-kilter love story is brutally honest, funny, edgy and current. It gives voice to a generation for whom uncertainty is a way of life… bravely written, startlingly structured”
Mike Karen, Karen Mike
an accelerated friendship
featuring Karen Johnson Diamond and Mike Keir
a co-production with Inside Out Theatre
May 13-16, 2015 @ EPCOR’s Motel
Join us as witnesses of improvised friendship between beloved improviser Karen Johnson Diamond and long-time Inside Out Theatre performer Mike Keir, hosted by their mutual friend Col Cseke.
Over four nights of mayhem, Mike and Karen will officially become friends and school each other on individual areas of interest and passion. What does playing Scrabble over breakfast do for the soul? How can living with cerebral palsy make you afraid of people who can walk? Each of the four performances will explore a different phase in their hyper-accelerated friendship: the getting-to-know-you phase, the night of teenage rebelion, a mid-life “let’s spice things up” crisis, and a bucket list party to wrap up the run.
No Proper Nouns: A Scrabble Party
