2018/2019 Season

Jitters

 Join us in the fall for a Canadian comedy classic!

Directed by Tracy Thorpe

October 26-November 10, 2018


David French's Jitters is a warm-hearted, lively and truly hilarious examination of backstage shenanigans by one of Canada's leading playwrights. The audience is treated to a backstage peek at the trials and tribulations of a provincial theatre company as it approaches opening night of its latest production, 'The Care and Treatment of Roses'.  Whatever can go wrong does, but the show must go on!  

"For anyone who has any knowledge of the life of the theatre, French has caught its moods, anxieties and foibles to a lunatic nicety." —NY Post.
"…a sparkling Canadian comedy to rank up there with the best of them…comedy of character, filled with bitchy wit, warmth and affection." —Toronto Star. 

Ruthless!

How far would you go to get what you want?
