ASL Interpretation - The Scarlet Letter

Theatre Calgary presents The Scarlet Letter

letter.jpg

It is 1642 and Hester Prynne has been branded an adulterer by her Puritan village and forced to wear the titular scarlet letter as repentance. However, in this modern adaptation, Hester is unashamed of her actions and proudly subverts society’s rigid standards put upon women to be virtuous and good.

The New Canadian Curling Club tells the story of a Chinese physician, a Jamaican Tim Horton’s manager, a South Asian father, and a 17-year old Syrian refugee who live in a rural Albertan town. In an effort to welcome newcomers to Canada, the community decides to offer a free, “Learn to Curl” program. But when its organizer slips on the ice and breaks her hip, the rink’s ice custodian and former champion curler Stuart MacPhail is forced to step in as head coach. Trouble is, Stuart has some strong opinions about immigrants—opinions he has trouble keeping to himself. What follows is the hilarious and inspiring story of a group of unlikely athletes who face off against local prejudice and become a true team.

A comedy that “is funny, very funny profound and diverse and encouraging” (London Fuse), The New Canadian Curling Club is a laugh-out-loud, heart-warming reminder of what it means to be Canadian.

Deaf Interpretation - Assassinating Thomson

Inside Out Theatre and Lunchbox Theatre present Assassinating Thomson

Untitled design.png

Our first Deaf Interpreted performance, interpreted by Wanda Warkentin!

FOLLOWING OUR SOLD-OUT PRESENTATION OF THIS INSIGHTFUL ONE MAN SHOW IN 2017 ASSASSINATING THOMSON IS COMING BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

Award- winning and critically acclaimed Visually Impaired visual artist Bruce Horak lives with 9% of his vision and has, over the last two years, painted a series over 400 unique portraits which attempt to capture the way that he sees, aptly named The Way I See It.

As he tells the story of The Way I See It, the tale of Canadian painter Tom Thomson’s unsolved murder is interwoven throughout, including the truth and lies behind the mysterious death of one of Canada’s greatest artists and the subsequent rise of The Group of Seven. The mystery takes you from the tiny community of Canoe Lake, to the hallowed halls of our nation’s capital, and eventually on to the World stage.

Art, politics, greed, ambition, love and murder are intertwined in a one-man tour-de-force as Horak exploits icons of Canadian History, including Tom Thomson, Lawren Harris, and William Lyon Mackenzie King.

As he reveals his controversial perspective on Canadian Art History, Horak shares the unique way he sees the world through an original portrait of each new audience.

RUNNING TIME: 1 Hour

LOCATION: Lunchbox Theatre, at the base of the Calgary Tower - 160 115 9 Avenue SE
