And what a season we have for you!
The 2017 season opens with the most successful Canadian comedy ever staged on Broadway, Bernard Slade’s Same Time, Next Year (June 23 to July 16). Audiences will savour the sights, sounds, and sensations of the post-war “good years,” 1951-1975, in this story about two people, each married to someone else, who meet for an annual weekend getaway. It is celebrated as “genuinely funny and genuinely romantic” (New York Post) and “the funniest comedy to come Broadway’s way in years” (New York Times).
George Bernard Shaw’s romantic comedy Candida (July 21 to August 13) will appeal to anyone who remembers the powerful pull of a first love that burns in their soul. Long before the British exported Beatlemania, there was “Candidamania”, a phenomenon inspired by this delightfully warm and witty play in which Candida must choose between her clergyman husband and a passionate young poet.
The mainstage season closes with an Alfred Hitchcock-styled psychological thriller, I’ll Be Back before Midnight (August 18 to September 10), Peter Colley’s “gaslighting” tale of a young couple who rent an old, spooky country farmhouse. Is the heroine really seeing and hearing things, or are they the after-effects of her recent nervous breakdown? And just who is that mysterious farmer from down the road? You’ll discover why this is the most widely-produced Canadian play, a hit in over 30 countries worldwide.
NEW THIS YEAR! All mainstage shows run Tuesday to Sunday matinees at 2 pm, and Wed. & Sat. evenings at 8 pm. The theatre is wheelchair accessible and air conditioned, with free parking.
The Festival’s popular theatrical walking plays return this year with expanded performance times. Perth through the Ages (June 21 to August 27, Wed. to Sun. at 11 am) presents a new, hour-long story that allows visitors to breathe in the stories behind Perth’s award-winning heritage buildings with a play focused on the daily lives, concerns, and conflicts of Perth and area residents at the time of Confederation.
The Lonely Ghosts Walk (June 29 to August 25, Thursdays and Friday at 7 pm) will feature a new ghostly story featuring the unsettled spirits of Perth performing an hour-long, family-friendly romp through the town’s mysterious and haunted past. Music, comedy, and song are featured in this tale set at the time of Confederation.
