After nearly forty years of marriage, JOAN and JOE CASTLEMAN (Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce) are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work. Joe's literary star has blazed since he and Joan first met in the late 1950. THE WIFE interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion and ambition with a portrait of a marriage, thirty-plus years later--a lifetime's shared compromises, secrets, betrayals, and mutual love.

A daughter and wife-to-be, Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Alonzo Hunt, who goes by the nickname Fonny (Stephan James). Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit. Through the unique intimacy and power of cinema, If Beale Street Could Talk honors the author's prescient words and imagery, charting the emotional currents navigated in an unforgiving and racially biased world as the filmmaker poetically crosses time frames to show how love and humanity endure.

Ever woken up beside a stranger? What if it was planned that way? shameless hussy presents the acclaimed one-woman, 16 character, theatrical tour de force DISSOLVE by Meghan Gardiner. At turns hilarious and heartbreaking, DISSOLVE confronts the topic of drink spiking and drug facilitated sexual assault. Responding to interest from schools and educators, this play has been touring to colleges, universities and high schools throughout North America. DISSOLVE alternates actors with both Emmelia Gordon (who earned the 2014 Jessie Richardson award "Outstanding Actress" for the role) and joining us in 2018 is the talented Lucy McNulty.

The play follows a young girl on a night out and the people she encounters, with the actress morphing fluidly between a flurry of 14 characters, both comedic and compelling. Designed to provoke thought and dialogue about sexual consent, DISSOLVE challenges us to change our beliefs and behaviour surrounding alcohol, drugs and sexual assault. DISSOLVE proposes to transform potential bystanders into ‘upstanders.’

Show: 45 minutes + talk back follows each performance.

Icons of Soul, Luke McMaster’s ambitious new project, offers a refreshing twist.

For not only is Brandon, Manitoba-born purveyor of contemporary blue-eyed soul paying tribute to classic R&B songwriting legends on his upcoming fourth album: he’s recruiting them.

“I’m collaborating with legends like Lamont Dozier and Felix Cavaliere on some new originals,” says McMaster, the Toronto-based singer, songwriter and producer best known for “Good Morning, Beautiful,” his 2013 Top 3 Billboard AC smash with new age pianist Jim Brickman.

“And what’s especially cool about this project is that they’re still hungry: as much as I’m learning from these masters who wrote unforgettable hits that have formed the soulful soundtrack of my life, they’re equally excited to work with me and my songwriting partner Arun Chaturvedi to write something fresh.”

Aside from covering some of the classic immortal chart-toppers written by Rascals founder Cavaliere (“Good Lovin’,” “Groovin’,” “People Got to Be Free”) and Motown sensation Dozier of Holland/Dozier/Holland (“(Love Is Like A) Heat Wave,” “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” “You Can’t Hurry Love”) - both members of the Rock ‘N Roll and Songwriter Halls of Fame -McMaster co-wrote two songs apiece with the prodigies at their respective Nashville and Las Vegas homes, capturing the occasions on camera for a corresponding Icons of Soul TV documentary series.

Motus O Dance Theatre - Prisoner of Tehran

Tickets $35 Regular | $29 Big Ticket | $25 Big Ticket Plus

Prisoner of Tehran is the engaging TRUE story of teenage Marina Nemat. In a unique collaboration between Marina and MOTUS O, this synthesis of a dance, theatre and lecture deals with social justice on the theme of Oppression and Freedom. It is a multi-disciplinary performance based on Marina’s best-selling book “Prisoner of Tehran”. The dance is by turns athletic and nuanced as the four artists wind around Nemat’s words and her physical body. The narration, the movement, and the spaces between the two create a powerfully emotional experience for the audience. This performance is simply spectacular.

The show runs 55 minutes followed by a Q & A video with Marina Nemat herself (10 minutes) and then a live Q & A with our cast (10 minutes). No intermission this evening.

FILM: COLETTE

Rockies Film Series
Tickets $12
Double Feature $20 - Sharkwater Extinction 6:30 pm

In “Colette,” based on the life of the foremost female French novelist, Giles Nuttgens’ gorgeous cinematography invites us into the lush, candle-lit world of late 19th century France, contrasting the thick greenery outdoors of the countryside with the highly decorated interiors of Paris. Both locations are seductively lavish, not in terms of the money spent by the people who live there, but in the wealth of lived-in detail bathed in soft, golden light. Colette herself, played by Keira Knightley, is in increasingly stark contrast to both settings, too curious and independent-minded for the quiet life of the country, too honest and unconfined for the conventions of the city.
Portrayed by Keira Knightley, Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette was a French writer, actor and feminist icon whose work caused an uproar in the early 1900s. The biopic Coletteshowcases Colette’s upbringing and unveiling of her work, while also shining a light on her distraught relationship with Willy, the lover who took credit for her first four novels.

THE Vagina Monologues

Saturday February 9
7:30 pm
Tickets $15 Festival Seating
Rated 18A - Suitable for ages 18 +

The Vagina Monologues revolutionized the world after it began in 1996, when Eve Ensler interviewed 200 women about the details of their feminine experience; anecdotes about sex, relationships, attraction, and sometimes violence. Eve turned these women's stories into a one-woman-monologue off-Broadway show, and from there it spread like wildfire.

The run away success of that show spurred many more productions around the world, with ensemble casts - often starring and supported by celebrities and notable activists.

Eve Ensler started The V-Day movement, which is a global activist initiative to end violence against women and girls. All the proceeds from every performance of The Vagina Monologues goes to Canadian Mental Health Kootenay Region.

The amazing women in this cast, comprised of local business owners, activists, , mothers, daughters, and talented performers, are all honoured and inspired to be a part of this production.

The alt-rockers first earned critical acclaim with their debut albums Touch Up (2007) and O My Heart (2008). The releases that followed, Eureka (2011) and The Sticks (2012) delivered the top 5 radio hits “The Stand”, “Bit By Bit” and “Let’s Fall In Love”, making the band the second most aired alternative act in Canada in 2012 and 2013. In 2014 they racked up more hits with “Get Out The Way”, “Monkey Tree” and “Modern Love” from their much-lauded record Very Good Bad Thing. The band has also found success on the road, most recent tours include sold-out headline dates across North America, selling out the historic Massey Hall, and a record-breaking five consecutive sold-out shows at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver.
