WHAT CORBIN KNEW
April 27, 28, 29, 2017
Richard Corbin is an architect with access to a posh skybox, and one evening he invites two couples who've never met: Marshall and Margo, who are well-off, suburban, and obnoxious; and Arno and Thada, who are struggling, bohemian, and obnoxious. By the end of Act 1, they have erupted into violent loathing, and one of them meets an untimely end. But in Act 2 we get to see everything the clueless Corbin missed when he was out of the room, giving us an astonishing new perspective -- it's an ingenious, unpredictable, hilarious farce wrapped inside a mystery.
NOTE: This is an adult-oriented play with mature themes, language and content. Viewer discretion is advised.
FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS

North Peace Cultural Centre
In Alan Ball’s hilarious comedy, Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, five very different bridesmaids find themselves hiding together in an upstairs bedroom, hoping to escape the wedding reception of a bride that -- they soon realize -- none of them really like! There is Meredith, the rebellious little sister of the bride; Frances a highly religious, but sweet cousin; Mindy, a blunt, good-hearted lesbian who is the sister of the groom; Georgeanne, a friend from high school whose marriage is falling apart; and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose pessimism and doubts about men are proved false when she meets Tripp Davenport, an usher at the wedding. In this cramped bedroom above the wedding, these five identically dressed women talk, laugh, argue, cry, console one another, and slowly become friends.
