Two powerful one-acts that were presented to acclaim at the recent NotaBle Acts Theatre Festival.
Life Goes On by Muriel Falkenstein – directed by Julianne Richard and MAD About Van Horne by Ron Kelly Spurles – directed by Alex McAllister.
Life Goes On – March to June, 2020. Six students are given an assignment, somehow as mundane as it is unthinkable: make a video time capsule, for the strangest year of your life, the one where time is now standing still. Interestingly, life does find a way to happen even if it does so in a tangle. The digital age creates webs across the stage, as love, interpersonal dramas, social conquest, and all the timeless problems of teenagers find new outlets in Zoom chats and journals rife with topical references, as their minds buzz with burning cities, melting ice caps and an increasingly uncertain future. Featuring performances by Nicole Zacharuk, Alex Dawson, Reinaldo Cascante, and Megan Murphy.
MAD About Van Horne – It is 100 years ago, and a St. Andrews barn is playing host to a half-baked rehearsal. Grace Mowat and her Music And Drama society are to put on a play about the town hero, railroad magnate and owner of Minister’s Island William Cornelius Van Horne, in the hopes that his widow, (and other folks of fine society,) might take notice. In this ode to both the dignity and misadventures of amateur theatre, the question is thick in the evening air- does it matter? Will anything have changed after the curtains close? Featuring performances by Dani Brun, Brenna Gauthier, Scott Harris, and Josef Addleman.
Held at the Sackville Legion 15 Lorne St
