“The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings.”
During a very challenging time for the performing arts, we find ourselves fortunate as a small company to be able to program theatre with versatility and adaptation to the times. So, we’re thrilled to be returning with another great play and some inventive educational programming as the world works to emerge from the global pandemic.
This December, we’ll be presenting the Canadian premiere of SNOWFLAKE by award winning British playwright Mike Bartlett. Snowflake will be directed by Jennifer Copping and features actors Aaron Craven, Natasha Burnett and Anni Ramsay.
THE STORY: Andy loves nostalgic television, pints down at the pub, and listening to the whole album from beginning to end. His daughter, Maya, wears good shoes, likes good arguments, and has a secret plan to bring down the government. The trouble is, three years ago Maya left home, and they haven’t spoken since. But this Christmas, she might be coming back. Andy knows she’s going to stay. Maya knows she’s not. Snowflake is an epic story about generational conflict, fathers and daughters, and whether we’re living in the best or worst of times.
“A masterfully written generational clash. Rich in insight, poignancy and optimism.”
In addition to our production of Snowflake, we’ll give back to our community by mentoring young artists via our annual Young Actors Scholarship through our Working Actors Gym.
NEW this year, we’ve very excited to be producing “ACTING ATYPICAL”, a foundational exploration of acting for teens and adults on the autism spectrum. The workshop will be hosted by artistic director Aaron Craven and supported by licensed behavioural consultant Jo Di Tomasso. This workshop is one more way that Mitch and Murray Productions is breaking down barriers of access to the arts.
