The Ends of the Earth
By Morris Panych
Directed by Amiel Gladstone

1994 Governor General's Award for Drama

Wacky, hysterical, like a metaphysical Marx Brothers movie CBC Radio

Renowned for his quirky off beat comedies, Morris Panych has a unique take on life. Frank, an unremarkable man, and Walker, an unlucky one, are determined to confirm their suspicions that the other is out to get him. In their frantic attempts to lose one another they end up in the same hotel, The Ends of the Earth. This delightfully warped tale serves to remind us all that fear can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

January 22 - February 22, 2009 Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage

By Somerset Maugham
Director Morris Panych

Why get mad when you can get even? In this classic comedy of marriage and revenge, the discovery of her husband's infidelity sparks in Constance some rather unusual behaviour!

"Deliciously witty, an antecedent to the women of Desperate Housewives and Sex and the City" - Variety

"A charming, light-hearted satirical comedy, jam-packed with the wit Maugham's works are famous for" -

"Stimulating as well as enormously entertaining" -
New York Daily News

"It makes you laugh, then it makes you think" -
New York Magazine

Classics in Context: See it with
Age of Arousal
Set 40 years after the close of
Age of Arousal by Linda Griffiths, Somerset Maugham's The Constant Wife imagines the life of a married middle-class woman and precisely addresses the questions raised about the future of women's rights posed by Griffiths's characters. Looking at these plays side by side, we can examine the challenges of women's growing independence in the home and in society.

Fifteen-year-old Lowell is no average teenager and his grandfather, Hardy, is no conventional role model. Whether urging the boy to pilfer a neighbours peaches, arranging his sexual initiation, or teaching him the finer points of poker, Hardy is the despair of Lowell’s born-again mother, Cash. But how far into forbidden territory has Lowell actually ventured?

The world premiere of a poignant, thought-provoking and sharply sardonic new drama by one of Canadas most original playwrights.
