Danny & The Deep Blue Sea
BY John Patrick Shanley
Set in the Bronx, this iconic play collides us with two of society’s beautiful yet dysfunctional city misfits. After a chance encounter in a forgotten bar, their defenses dissolve and a spontaneous night of heart-thumping confession, love and chaos unfolds. With no easy way out, both are forced to dive deep in order to find a forgiveness that offers the rare chance of a more hopeful future.

★★★★ "If any one play might serve as a perfect introduction to the works of playwright John Patrick Shanley, it may very well be Danny and the Deep Blue Sea. And if any one production may serve as a perfect introduction to the pleasures of a community theatre festival, it’s this one." - Randall King, Winnipeg Free Press

Catalpa is about the daring 1876 whale ship rescue of six Irish prisoners from Fremantle penal colony in Australia - all in the vibrant imagination of a screenwriter, the best movie never made! With heroes and visionaries, political intrigue, loyalty, romance, rebels and battles at sea. A subversive epic, a celebration of the power of live theatre, and for the first time, performed by a woman.

★★★★★ "If I could give this one six stars, I would. Within the first minutes on opening night, I could tell that we lucky souls in the audience were about to witness greatness." - Joff Schmidt, CBC

A beautifully told tale for children.
