Fierce

By Jane E Thompson
Directed by Alice Darling

What do you see when you see me? Me? You don’t know what to do with me. You have to do something with your body and you don’t know what to do with me… What is my body to you?

The Nightingale and the Rose

By Oscar Wilde

Some kill their love when they are young,
and some when they are old;
some strangle with the hands of lust,
some with the hands of gold:
THE KINDEST USE A KNIFE, because
THE DEAD SO SOON GROW COLD.

Polygraph

By Robert Lepage & Marie Brassard

In this era of Post-Truth Politics, does lying need to be disguised anymore?  Is the notion of truth a reality or only a perception? In POLYGRAPH, truth is on trial just as it is in our current political landscape.

DYBBUKS

A CHAMBER MADE WORK
CONCEIVED AND DIRECTED BY SAMARA HERSCH

Chamber Made evokes the many ways that the dead inhabit female bodies through language, voice, memory and desire.

DYBBUKS is a bilingual (Yiddish & English) contemporary theatre and music work created by lead artist Samara Hersch and collaborators together with three performers, a local Yiddish choir of inter-generational women and four female musicians.

In Yiddish mythology, dybbuks are the unresolved souls who seek to find form through living bodies. This new work from Chamber Made evokes the many ways that the dead inhabit female bodies through language, voice, memory and desire.

Something Incredibly Secret

We are doing something we have never done before

Theatre Works is preparing to do something we’ve never done before. In October, we will be presenting a bold new work with a very unique twist. Watch this space for more details, but be sure to keep a night free in October for an epic evening in the theatre.

Perpetual Frustration Machine

By Stephen Sewell & Zebastian Hunter

The driving forces of human life seem to set us up for perpetual frustration. We want something – desire something – that once obtained disappoints and baffles. The apple is not as juicy, the smart jacket quite as smart, the fast car as fast, the marriage partner quite the fulfillment of your dreams. We thrash about looking for the real thing that seems tantalisingly close but just beyond our reach.
