Someone Like You

May 19 - January 19

A boyfriend from hell. A nightmare apartment. A botched Tinder date. Isabelle and Kristen have been through a lot together. But the arrival of Kristen’s new romantic interest leaves Isabelle wondering how long she can stay in a supporting role. This new comedy launches Cyrano de Bergerac into the 21st century: mistaken identities, millennial manifestos, and the quest for self-love. Who might be waiting in the wings?

A New Normal

May 28 - May 29

Maggie is fiercely independent but now needs someone to rely on as financial strains threaten her living.  Helen is challenged by her inability to function on her own in a modern world and is seeking her own independence. Thrown together by diametrically different circumstances, they scramble through the adjustments of day-to-day life and discover something to be treasured. This heart-warming, funny and ultimately moving new play explores perception and judgement and how what the world sees is not necessarily the reality being lived.

The Parliament of the Birds

May 26 - June 30

When the call goes out the birds of the world – all sizes, colours, and abilities – gather as one great flock, and embark on an epic journey in search of self, enlightenment, and truth. The beloved allegorical poem by Persian poet Farid al-Din Attar comes to life in a new adaptation filled with hope, that is both timeless and sits firmly in the present.
