      • Basement Santa, by Rajneesh Dhawan, directed by Thomas Smith

        Warning: Language and mature content.
      • Canadian Content, written and directed by Darcy J. Knopp
        Ivan has written the kind of play that Michael Bay dreams about when he is lonely. The trouble is the CBC wants something more…Canadian.  Ivan and his friends are determined to stay up all night to come up with a script that tastes like maple syrup and smells like a moose.
        Warning: Swearing, adult themes, alcohol use. If you’re bringing children, you’ll have some explaining to do after the show.

        2. A Bench on the Edge by Luigi Jannuzzi, directed by Stephanie Morrison

        2. In On It by Daniel MacIvor, directed by Anna Dokshina
        A story about a dying man trying to make plans for the end, a pair of lovers trying to make it work, and two people trying to make a play. A world where accidents happen.
      • And they lived HAPPILY NEVER AFTER… adapted and directed by Jacqui Higginbottom, from the play by Tim Kelly.
        The course of true love does not run smoothly: Sleeping Beauty does nothing but nap; the Frog Prince refuses to give up his amphibian ways; and nothing will pry Cinderella away from her beloved cinders. Our unhappy fairy tale characters demand the Grimm Siblings make some changes, which they do, but not in the way you might think! Find out if things end up truly Happily Ever After. Suitable for all ages.
      • The Last Five Years by Jason Robert Brown, directed by Steffi Munshaw
        A powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy telling her story backwards while Jamie tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.
        Warning: Adult language and sexual innuendo.

        A tumultuous blend of comedy and suspense. This show guarantees to leave the audience laughing, but only from the edge of their seats.
        2. The Most Massive Woman Wins by Madeline George, directed by Morgan Benedict
