A Co-Production with Ambrose University Theatre
By Arlene Hutton
Directed by Kate Newby
A once dramatic form of worship has developed into routine in the Shaker community…until a new Sister arrives to upset the harmony. A rumination of the nature of God, goodness, and grace.
A religious community is changed when a non-believer has an ecstatic experience. A once dramatic form of worship has by now developed into routine. The arrival of Fanny upsets the harmony; the Sisters suspect her to be a "winter Shaker," one who suddenly converts when life gets too hard on the farm. Fanny sees angels in the meadow, and soon all the young women are receiving spiritual "gifts", completely upsetting the community.
“This play presents familiar human conflicts and philosophical meditations on faith, reason, and creativity in a compelling and unexpectedly accessible way.” – NY Theatre

A Workshop with Val Lieske
All of the elements needed to write a good story are the same elements needed to live a good life. Conflict. Character development. Risk. Love. Sacrifice.
Find out what scares you, what inspires you, what motivates you and then write them into your story.
“If you aren’t telling a good story, nobody thinks you died too soon; they just think you died.” – Donald Miller

Directed by Heather Laubenstein
Three women in their thirties come "home" to Cape Breton to be with their dying mother. Each in her own way tries to deal with the painful loneliness of their lives – each is trying to reconcile what they have become with what they thought they wanted out of life and with what they thought their parents wanted for them. Nothing, of course, has turned out exactly the way anyone imagined it would.
A humorous and touching story about the absolute power of realization and how it heals as much as it harms.
“A moving drama that tiptoes around sentimentality without ever reaching it.”
– New York Times
“A sensitive, beautifully written and frequently very funny play.”
– The Calgary Herald
