JULIET: A Revenge Comedy is a fast-paced, action-adventure comedy that follows Juliet on the literary adventure of the century. Juliet, played by Canadian Comedy Award nominee Pippa Mackie, refuses to die for someone she just met two days ago.

“In this brand new show, written by Ryan Gladstone and Pippa Mackie, Juliet joins a bevy Shakespeare’s Suicide Girls as they try to gain agency over their lives outside of the Bard’s sharp and sexist quill. Mackie, alongside Carly Pokoradi, channels the child Juliet and a fearsome Lady Macbeth along with Ophelia, Cleopatra and more. Gladstone plays a suitably foppish William of Stratford to a merry band of feminists in this time-shifting, mind-bending comedic confection.” – Lara Rae, CBC Manitoba

I Walked the Line
Written & Performed by Allan Morgan
A play about unions, treachery, walking, porta-potties, solidarity, walking, baked goods, and hope.

“What does an internationally-known, high-profile actor do when the biz hands him lemons? First, he finds alternate employment, uses his theatre skills in the new job, and eventually turns the whole experience into theatre.” – Jo Ledingham Review

I Walked the Line is an autobiographical 70-minute solo show encapsulating Morgan’s shift from unemployed “downtown gay actor guy” to real-life suburban union hall mailroom clerk. Allan took a position in the mailroom of a union headquarters building. He enjoyed the experience and his colleagues, embracing his new role with the same enthusiasm and dedication that he had applied to his life in theatre productions. But suddenly he and his colleagues were locked out by the union management. This is Allan’s personal story of being locked out by a union, of the strike, and of his experiences in keeping spirits up while soles, and souls, are fraying.
