Our subscription series kicks off with Lemoine’s only brand new work for the season. Temporarily stranded in a pleasant alpine location, five would-be travellers find themselves increasingly fascinated by one another. Worries and preoccupations go by the wayside as these new friends joyously explode and reimagine their expected trajectories with trademark Teatro pith and brio. The vivacious and intrepid quintet of adventurers includes Rachel Bowron, Mathew Hulshof, Jenny McKillop, Vincent Forcier, and Jeff Haslam.
It’s been thirty years since Teatro last presented Maxwell Anderson’s cunning psychological thriller, based on the sensational novel by William March.
When 8-year-old Rhoda Penmark’s rival for the school penmanship medal dies under mysterious circumstances, a web of family secrets begins to unravel, leading Rhoda’s mother inexorably toward some chilling suspicions about her child. Our biggest cast of the season features Mark Bellamy, Mat Busby, Cathy Derkach, Kristi Hansen, Jeff Haslam, Andrea House, and in their company debuts, Nicola Elbro as Christine Penmark and Lilla Solymos (most recently seen in the title role of the Citadel’s Matilda) as the terrifying Rhoda.

What would a Teatro season be without a madcap screwball comedy? A famous literary hoax begets a further series of deceptions, misunderstandings, and outright lies, until things come to a head in the smallest hotel room in New York. Andrew MacDonald-Smith presides as the chief provocateur in a cast which also includes Kendra Connor, Andrea House, Paula Humby, Louise Lambert, and Ron Pederson.
