The New Testament by Neil LaBute is a comedy about the difficulty of producing theatre. The Producer and the Writer have met at a restaurant to fire an actor who has been wrongfully cast in the role of Jesus Christ. The problem is that the Actor is Chinese and the Writer doesn’t believe this guy from Indonesia, or Korea, or wherever, fits the bill.

Never Forget (To Laugh)
Susan Nisbet (BHTC Alumni Extraordinaire!) passed away this past November and a group of people who were greatly affected by her wisdom, humour and humility have gathered to present an evening of merriment in her honour. Part of the proceeds from this show will go to the Great Hall Theatre Fund and HYTES, two charities Susan was very passionate about.
Susan lived life to the fullest. Paralysis caused by a degenerative neuro-muscular disorder could not stop Susan from achieving and over-achieving.
In November of 2007 Susan first noticed symptoms of what was eventually diagnosed as "multi-focal motor neuropathy with conductive blocking". By October 2008 Susan was confined to a wheelchair and by December of that year was no longer able to breathe on her own. Despite these new challenges, Susan went back to University in the Spring of 2009 and graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Arts (with distinction) in October 2009, having maintained an A average throughout her University years. Susan began her career as an amateur comedian in April 2009. The highlight of her career in comedy was her appearance at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival in April of 2010.
When: Saturday, February 19th

Box Office Information
And now for something completely different. Naughty Sailboat Evil Media Corporation invites you on a multimedia voyage through the mustachioed madness that is the mind of August Strindberg. Our evening promises a cavalcade of Strindbergian shorts spanning genres and art forms as we delve into the oeuvre of this year’s Master Playwright. From the company that birthed into existence Kafka in Love at the 2010 Winnipeg Fringe, comes... a whole new theatrical adventure.
Warning: Show may contain puppets, dance, video, original music and other sources of mirth and wonder. And if this sounds at all perplexing, gentle reader, worry not. This will all make sense in the end.
