A comedy of race and real estate
The winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for best play, this biting contemporary satire skewers the conventions of political correctness in shockingly entertaining fashion. In Chicago, 1959, an African-American family moves into a house in Clybourne Park, to the mortification of its all-white residents. Fast-forward 50 years, and now the neighbour-hood is predominately black. When young white newlyweds attempt to buy the very same house, will they face the same resistance?

She Stoops to Conquer
By Oliver Goldsmith
A bawdy romp
Romantic tomfoolery and mistaken identities abound in Goldsmith’s classic comedy of manners. When shy-with-the ladies Charles Marlow sets off to the country to meet his blind date, Kate Hardcastle, a practical joke convinces him that Hardcastle manor is a luxury inn. Treating one’s prospective in-laws as hired help is hardly advisable, but when it appears that Charles is quite a charmer with women of a lesser station, mayhem ensues and love blossoms.

A mile-high comedy
Bernard, a successful architect in swinging sixties Paris, is even more successful with the ladies. In fact, he juggles the hearts of three air hostesses who jet in and out of his groovy bachelor pad: Gloria, Gabriella, and Gretchen—aka “America,” “Italy,” and “Germany.” But when Boeing introduces a faster jet, Bernard’s precise romantic timetable goes hysterically off course and turbulence looms.

An unforgettable duet in the key of laughter
This is the laugh-out-loud autobiographical story that has become one of Canada’s most successful theatrical productions. In this farewell run, the creators/stars Ted and Richard propel you through comically poignant vignettes of their childhood piano lessons—complete with virtuoso displays of technique—and share the triumphs and tortures of being extraordinarily good failed musicians. Not just for music nerds, 2 Pianos 4 Hands is for anyone who has ever strived to achieve a goal.
