    Sometimes hilarious, sometimes touching, this song cycle is a nonstop exploration of everyday struggles in the modern world, particularly those surrounding love.

    In this dramatization of Harper Lee’s iconic novel, the narrator is Jean Louise, a grown up version of Scout, the young girl who struggles to understand the social issues that lead to violent events in small town Alabama in 1935.

    It’s opening night of a Broadway play. A group of insiders, including the producer, director and actors meet at a party to await the reviews.

    Comic and touching, the play is based on the Canadian playwright’s experience when she worked for Judge Biddle, former U.S. Attorney General and Chief Judge at Nuremberg. The plot revolves around the young assistant and the old Philadelphia aristocrat “trying” to understand each other.

Welcome to The Players' Guild


A murder in 1876... ...the killer's hanging two months later.

Rumours of a ghost in the costume room... A gray Victorian house with a bright red door.

Historical facts? An incredible backdrop for great theatre? How about both! The Players' Guild of Hamilton, the oldest community theatre in North America, is proud to announce that this coming season, patrons will get both: four great plays held at the historic Guild House - one of Hamilton's oldest and most unique theatre spaces.
