A series of explorations culled from the minds of our directors.
Admission: $25.

Love in a Dangerous Time BUY NOW  

Studio Theatre, Wednesday, August 27, 11 a.m to 12:30 p.m. $25.  

Queen Christina sent paintings and prints of herself to various courts in Europe in her attempt to find a new residence after her planned abdication and departure from Sweden. Art historian Dr. Rose Marie San Juan explores how these images address rumours of the Queen's sexuality, lesbianism and hermaphroditism, while company members read letters exchanged between Queen Christina and her “intimate friend” Ebba Sparre.

Studio Theatre, Sunday, September 7, 10-11:30 a.m. $25.

“Consent, if mutual, saves the lawyer’s fee. Consent is law enough to set you free.” In George Farquhar’s The Beaux’ Stratagem the cure for an unhappy marriage is an agreed separation: a revolutionary step. Theatre critic Robert Cushman looks at love, sex, marriage and divorce in Restoration comedy. With readings by company members Maev Beaty, Mike Shara, Scott Wentworth and Brigit Wilson.

Noah Richler, author of the critically acclaimed book, What We Talk About When We Talk About War, contemplates our repeated subjugation before the rhetoric and language of war. Said Thomas Hardy, "War makes rattling good history; but Peace is poor reading." Has anything changed? Will it ever?
