Antigone

Translated and adapted by Timberlake Wertenbaker from Sophocles' original text

directed by Jeanne Leep

performedNovember 2011, Regina Theatre

Set in a post-apocalyptic backdrop with undertones of tragic current events, this classic Greek tale about free will, about natural law versus that of the state, about whether loyalty to family takes precedence over country, and about the dangers of tyranny draws parellels between the past and our future in a post-9/11 world.

Almost, Maine

by John Cariani
directed by Audrey Wax

performedFebruary/March 2012, Regina Theatre

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.

Our Town

byThorton Wilder
directed by Jeanne Leep

performedApril/May 2012, Regina Theatre

An American classic and the last show in the Regina Theatre. A character story about an average town's citizens as depicted through their everyday lives, particularly those of George Gibbs, the doctor's son, and Emily Webb, the daughter of the town's newspaper editor and George's future wife. Our Town celebrates the everyday and reminds us to take nothing for granted.
