Sept. 19-Oct. 4, 2014

By Oscar Wilde

Directed by Cory Doran

 

A farcical satire written by one of the world's most prolific writers, The Importance of Being Earnest has stood the test of time and remains an audience favourite. This story of two Victorian aristocrats trying to escape their social burdens contains all of Oscar Wilde's characteristic wit, Victorian charm and biting social commentary without ever becoming too serious. In Wilde's own words, "It is exquisitely trivial...we should treat all the trivial things of life seriously, and all the serious and studied things of life with sincere and studied triviality."

Nov. 5-22, 2014

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Jeremy Hutton

 

One of Shakespeare's most acclaimed plays The Tempest tells the tale of a vengeful, exiled lord who is willing to sacrifice the happiness of his beloved daughter as a means to destroy his rivals. Set on a desolate island full of mystery and magic, The Tempest explores the nature of justice, the illusion of power and the fantastical monsters that lurk within the human condition.

Jesus Christ Superstar
Jan. 16-31, 2015

Lyrics by Tim Rice

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Directed by Luke Brown

 

The greatest rock opera ever created, Jesus Christ Superstar has enthralled audiences since its historic and contentious Broadway opening in 1971. Based on the gospel accounts of Jesus' final days, it is the first musical of its kind to question the divine nature of Jesus Christ. Thrilling audiences as much as it ignites debate, Jesus Christ Superstar contains some of the most memorable music of Andrew Lloyd Webber's career - energetic, bold rock 'n' roll with a vocal score that is as epic as the story it tells.

Feb. 27-Mar. 7, 2015

Collectively created by Suzanne Khuri, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Banuta Rubess and Maureen White

Directed by Chelsea Dab Hilke

 

This is for You, Anna is a haunting exploration of revenge, liberation and motherhood. Breaking the mould of contemporary theatre, it demands that we acknowledge a new perspective and a new possibility in storytelling. When it made its debut in the 1980s, it was the first of its kind: a collective creation that strove to construct a theatrical story that was wholly female. From its structure and creative process to its subject matter and performing space, This is for You, Anna is a cheekily satirical and surprisingly poignant play that stands apart even today.

 

Discussion Forum: Post-performance panel discussions or keynote speakers will be featured each evening throughout the show's run. A range of topics will be explored such as the collective creation process, the legal arguments presented in the cases of characters Anna and Marianne, the current state of women's shelters, blaming the victim and rape culture. Please check with our website or UofTtix Box Office for each evening's post-performance programming.
