A simple game between gamblers, before long becomes an intricate trail of deceits within deceits within deceits. And just when we think we have it all worked out, we realize the jokers are pulling the wool over our very eyes. Nobody is whom, or what they seem in our new, gender-fluid version of Nikolai Gogol’s genius satire of card sharps and confidence tricksters. One highly entertaining story of people who gamble, hustle and cheat. Directed by Esther Jun.

Location: Five Points Theatre, Barrie
Newfie Electra is a modern-day adaptation of a classic, Electra, by Sophocles. We are in a small out-port fishing village in Newfoundland. The main character, Tanya, is grieving the death of her Fadder at the hand of her Mudder. She spends day in and day out submerged at the fish plant plotting her next step. She wants revenge. Between jigs and the reels, we explore the storytelling of this wacky character and what it’s like to live in her shoes. Will she honour her Fadder and avenge his death? Only time will tell. AND Performing her original songs, music she was raised with, and even some tunes by the late Don Wright himself, Alyssa weaves together a tale about growing up in his musical shadow and under his silencing oppression; then eventually using the cello and the other tools she’d inherited to find her own voice, heal from the past, and turn even the most shattered bits into art.
