Spider’s Web

By Agatha Christie

September 19th – October 6th, 2018

Clarissa, wife of a diplomat, is adept at spinning tales of adventure but when a murder takes place in her drawing room she finds live drama much harder to cope with. Desperate to dispose of the body before her husband arrives with an important politician, she enlists the help of her guests. Hilarity ensues when they are interrupted by the arrival of wry detective, Inspector Lord.

Christie delivers a unique blend of suspense and humour. There is tension and laughter in equal parts in an intricate plot of murder, police, drug addicts, invisible ink, hidden doorways and secret drawers.

“Suspense, anyone? The old fashioned kind? Who’s for good, clean fun?”

The Father

By Florian Zeller

Translated by Christopher Hampton

October 24th – November 10th, 2018

Florian Zeller won the Molière Award for Best Play for this wonderful work he called “a tragic farce”.

Now 80 years old, André was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter, Anne, and her husband, Antoine. Or was André an engineer, whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he is still wearing his pyjamas, and he can’t find his watch. He is starting to wonder if he’s losing control.

“…a super-smart, finally heart-breaking play… an unqualified triumph…”

The Daily Telegraph (UK)

“Harrowing…an exceedingly ingenious premise…”

Crees in the Caribbean

By Drew Hayden Taylor

January 30th – February 16th, 2019

A heart-warming comedy from one of Canada’s leading First Nations playwrights and humourists.

Crees in the Caribbean is the story of two middle-aged First Nations seniors, Evie and Cecil, on their very first trip out of the country. The couple’s children have sent them on a second honeymoon to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary. Cecil is sure that everyone is being nice to him because he is dying. If he doesn’t get over it, Evie just might kill him herself. A story of two imperfect people who are perfect together, and an unlikely friendship that takes them back to their own younger days.

“The jokes come in waves in Crees in the Caribbean, tickling the toes of the willing audience and filling the theatre with generous laughs.”

The Star Phoenix (Saskatoon)

“The play is packed with wit and humour, but also packs an emotional punch.”

The Argus (Thunder Bay)

The Theatre Aquarius Production of

Freaky Friday

Based on the novel Freaky Friday by

Mary Rodgers

and the Disney Film

April 24th – May 18th, 2019

When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again before mom’s big wedding. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a hilarious, contemporary update on an American classic in which a mother and daughter really see what it is to be a family and experience each other’s lives first-hand, if only for a day.

Delightfully spunky” with “timeless appeal” (Variety), Freaky Friday features a new book by Bridget Carpenter (Parenthood) and an original pop/rock score by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winners Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal). This dynamic story puts a fresh new spin on a “polished, peppy, modern fairy tale” (The Washington Post).
