2019 Lineup

Our Lady of the Ice

Written by Alyson Grant
December 5th, 2019 @ 7:00PM
Presented at Théâtre Rialto
5723 Park Ave, Montreal, Quebec H2V 4H2
Direction & Cast TBA

Our Lady of the Ice is set in Antarctica in a church carved out of ice–much like the actual church called Our Lady of the Snows–and outside where it is slightly too warm and Aurora Australis is occasionally flashing even though it’s not the right time of year. Dead penguin chicks dot the landscape and are also mysteriously showing up on the altar of the church presided over by a female Catholic priest, one of a growing number worldwide, all excommunicated, of course. At the thematic centre of the play is the dead body of a young female journalist who had been working with the priest, both of whom had clearly gotten too close to systems that are meant to remain invisible. Representatives of those systems are the invisible “Guests” who increasingly menace the priest through their footman Cal, owner of a luxury hotel where the unseen Guests are staying. Things move inexorably towards something that has the feel of myth while also seeming hauntingly current.


Divide and Rule

2ND PLACE WRITE-ON-Q! 2019 WINNER
Written by Vishesh Abeyratne
December 6th, 2019 @ 7:00PM
Presented at Théâtre Rialto
5723 Park Ave, Montreal, Quebec H2V 4H2
Direction & Cast TBA

In a thrift shop in British Columbia, a heated exchange between two Sri Lankan employees breaks out into a fight. Their manager tries to defuse the situation, bringing intercultural tensions and charged racial politics to the fore. But there may be more to the conflict than the two men are letting on…


Colour Blind

1ST PLACE “KEVIN” AWARD WRITE-ON-Q! 2019 WINNER
Written by Oren Safdie
December 7th, 2019 @ 7:00PM
Presented at Théâtre Rialto
5723 Park Ave, Montreal, Quebec H2V 4H2
Direction & Cast TBA

Colour Blind is a fictionalized account of the jury deliberations surrounding the selection of an architect for the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., designed by David Adjaye, completed in 2016.

The play lifts the veil that renders the process of architectural production bewildering, and invites the audience into the usually sealed-off space where critical decisions about architecture are made.

The jurors consist of a racially diverse cast of characters that include the museum director and his associate, an architecture critic and starchitect, and the museum’s treasurer and a community organizer.

Can they all put their personal politics aside and agree on one design?

Isabelle is Jewish, Patrick isn’t.

They are getting married.

During the celebration, Phillip, Patrick’s best friend, makes a gesture that is perceived as anti-Semitic.

Several guests are angry, in addition to Isabelle, who strikes Phillip, and seriously harms him.

The wedding is not the one we hoped for.

The marriage is even worse…
