This production traces a squad of Canadian soldiers, and the women in their lives, from the beginning of their enlistment, to the final victory of World War II. From the rambunctious comedy of their boot camp days, to chasing girls in England, to the terrors of D-Day, this play captures the essence of that era through humour, songs, and drama.

AngryMenby Sherman L. Sergel

A nineteen-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts. Each juror reveals his own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted, and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become twelve angry men. The final verdict, and how it is reached, add up to an exceptional piece of dramatic literature.

This touching and hugely entertaining comedy provides an insight into the lives of three sisters who are reunited for their mother’s funeral. This is a lovely piece, full of humour and heart, with a satisfying mixture of sardonic humour and deep emotion. Excellent jokes give way to festering resentments, booze and dope-fuelled hilarity to sudden glimpses of buried secrets and aching pain.

This is Neil Simon’s “ham on wry”. Al and Willie as “Lewis and Clark” were top-billed vaudevillians for over forty years. Now they aren’t even speaking. When CBS requests them for a “History of Comedy” retrospective, a grudging reunion brings the two back together, along with a flood of memories, miseries, and laughs.
