The Suicide
2016 GBC Spring
The Suicide

By Nicholai Erdman
Translated by Peter Tegel

February 10-20, 2016

A Russian black comedy of the 1920’s, The Suicide satirizes the plight of an unemployed man, desperate enough to contemplate ending it all, until he is besieged by a host of discontented characters begging him to kill himself as a gesture for their cause. Erdman’s comic rebellion against institutionalized poverty, the dangers of celebrity, and the lure of political power could make any government gulp and, as Soviet society slid into totalitarianism, Joseph Stalin banned the play. The script was smuggled abroad in various versions, but Erdman, exiled to Siberia, never saw his play realized on stage. "Only dead men say what the living think."

Tickets: $8 - $20 (price includes all fees and taxes)

The Great War

The History of the Village of the Small Huts, 1914 - 1918

Michael Hollingsworth

On stage April 1

In 1914 many cultures struggle to be heard in the national dialogue, but British Canada is still a well-fed bulldog with a loud bark. When war looms in Europe, the loyal colony musters a tenth of its people to defend the Empire. VideoCabaret’s award- winning ensemble conjures the battlefront and the home front with the trench-humour of soldiers, the follies of leaders, and the tragic farce of warfare.

The Beaux' Stratagem

By George Farquhar

April 12-23, 2016

Aimwell and Archer, two charming, dissolute young men, have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield in the hopes of marrying for money. Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, and a strange, turbulent priest, amongst others. But their greatest obstacle is love. When the two young meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs. Sullen they are most at risk of discovery, for in love they might be truly unmasked. George Farquhar’s final play is a frothy and sexy Restoration delight.

Tickets: $8 - $20 (price includes all fees and taxes)




The Enchanted
2016 GBC Spring
The Enchanted

By Jean Giraudoux

April 13-23, 2016

The Enchanted, is a thoughtful comedy of a charming young lady, a ghost, and a group of villagers, in a provincial French town, obsessed by the supernatural. Isabel wants to learn from the handsome ghost the answer to the riddle of death. The ghost, afraid life will tarnish her spirit and innocence, wants to spare Isabel the diminishing returns of old age. Isabel’s lover – an ardent bureaucrat – hopes that his well-calibrated love will keep her aboveground! Even in translation (by Maurice Valency), the mercurial language of Jean Giraudoux's 1933 confection delights. Aptly enchanting, the play deftly considers the variations on the theme of life and death.
