MAIDEN
Sep 10 @ 7:30 pm

Maiden is the story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook in charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World in 1989. Tracy’s inspirational dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she remortgaged her home and bought a secondhand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. Although blessed with tremendous self-belief Tracy was also beset by crippling doubts and was only able to make it through with the support of her remarkable crew. With their help she went on to shock the sport world and prove that women are very much the equal of men.

UK, 2018; 93 minutes

With: Tracy Edwards

“It’s a bitter irony that tempers the sweet taste of victory. Maiden excels as a suspenseful sports tale and a record of a historic first, but its biggest strength is in its warts-and-all character study of the Maiden crew. One can’t help but feel seen, moved and empowered once the credits roll.”

COIG
Sep 15 @ 7:30 pm

When the creative juices are flowing, there’s no holding back the talented quartet that makes up the Celtic supergroup Còig: Fiddler Chrissy Crowley, multi-instrumentalist Darren McMullen, piano player Jason Roach and Rachel Davis on fiddle, viola, vocals.

Còig’s music is a unique combination of influences that could only come from these four players. It’s traditional for sure, but it’s performed in a lot of non-traditional ways. “We all come from sort of a traditional background, but then we have different influences that we’re interested in,” explains fiddler and singer Rachel Davis. “Jason has a jazz degree, and listens to a lot of different music. Chrissy likes to dive into a lot of world music, Darren comes from a kind of Irish theme from playing around. More of the traditional Cape Breton music is really what I love, plus all the folk songs, so it’s an interesting mix.”

That leads to the other magic ingredient in Còig. It’s a band of fast friends, people that grew up together, played together, and knew each other way before they ever considered being in a band together. The best in trad music, in a non-traditional way. That’s Còig.

Darren McMullen – guitar, mandolin, mandola, banjo, bouzouki, whistles, flute, vocals
Rachel Davis – fiddle, viola, vocals
Jason Roach – piano
Chrissy Crowley – fiddle

XARA CHORAL THEATRE: RINGS THROUGH WATER
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm

Rings Through Water is new creation that uses ethereal choral singing, contemporary and traditional Indigenous dance, along with powerful text and theatrical presentation, to tell three short stories about water.  

It’s a collaboration between five artists – three Indigenous and two Settlers. Their desire to overcome their own embodied prejudices, privilege, and pain is central to their artistic process and to the beautiful narratives of this show.

Depending on its form, water has the capacity to amplify sound, distort it, or mute it; how do we do the same as we navigate our relationship with this precious resource and one another? Together they speak for water, lift up the voices of its protectors, and amplify the voices of the missing and murdered  Indigenous women who have met their end in it. They also offer a reconciliation-based model for Indigenous and Settler collaboration.

  • Deantha Edmunds, Inuk poet & soprano
  • Lisa Nasson, Mi’kmaq dramaturge
  • Sarain Fox, Anishinaabe choreographer
  • Christina Murray, Settler choral conductor
  • Jennifer Trites, Settler composer

ALL IS TRUE
Sep 24 @ 7:30 pm

The year is 1613, and Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground. Devastated, Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face a troubled past and a neglected family. Haunted by the death of his only son, Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationship with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as a husband and father.

Director: Kenneth Branagh

Stars: Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Ian McKellan

UK, 2018; 101 minutes

“Branagh leaves viewers with the impression that even the foremost genius of the English language and his family were ordinary people”.

– The Washington Post

“A quiet and meditative portrait of the artist as a retiree, this lacks incident or high stakes but has an elegiac feeling of regret and reckoning that fits its subject’s twilight years.

– Empire

A HARD DAY’S NIGHT
Sep 28 @ 7:30 pm
Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of release ofThe Beatles Abbey Road with the Greatest Jukebox Movie Ever Made, Re-Mastered

A Hard Day’s Night captures the biggest band in the world at the height of Beatlemania. Directed by Richard Lester and originally released in 1964, the film follows the Beatles over a 36-hour period that sees them traveling by train, hiding out from fans in a hotel room, losing Paul McCartney‘s grandfather multiple times and, finally, arriving just in the nick of time for their TV performance. It blends elements of documentary with concert film, in addition to plenty of just-for-fun scenes, like the band responding to fan mail, chasing down Paul’s grandfather at a casino and goofing off during rehearsals for their TV concert.

The undeniable heart of A Hard Day’s Night, though, is the music. Serving both as a soundtrack and a means of propelling the plot forward, almost all the hits from the titular album appear in the film. The title track plays as the band run from a horde of fans in the opening scene, while an impromptu performance of “I Should Have Known Better” provides a tender moment on the band’s train ride.

Over time, the film has revealed itself to be rather like the enigmatic opening chord to “A Hard Day’s Night” itself — it’s tough to pin it down exactly, but the second you hear it, you’re flooded with nostalgia, intrigue and pure joy.

ELAPULTIEK
Oct 6 @ 7:30 pm

Elapultiek (ehl-ah-bool-dee-egg) – “we are looking towards” – marks the first time Two Planks and a Passion Theatre has commissioned an Indigenous playwright from Nova Scotia to create a new work for the company. The show was a huge success as an outdoor performance last Summer. Now, Elapultiek begins its journey as a touring indoor production.

Because the play was designed to be performed “in the round”, King’s Theatre offers a special opportunity for a limited number of patrons to purchase seats on the stage. These are available on a first come first served basis.

 

 


ABOUT THE PLAY

In the time of Idle No More, a young Mi’kmaw drum singer and a Euro-Nova Scotian biologist meet at dusk each day to count a population of endangered Chimney Swifts. As the relationship deepens over time, they struggle with their differing views of the world. Each ‘count night’ reveals a deeper complexity of connection to land, history, and ecology, and of reconciliation on a personal level.

Playwright and performer Shalan Joudry is an oral storyteller, hand-drum singer and poet from the traditional district of Kespukwitk (southwest Nova Scotia). Following years of raising children, performing, writing, and ecology work, Shalan now lives and works in her community of Bear River First Nation, sharing messages of reconnecting to both land and culture.

THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO
Oct 8 @ 7:30 pm

Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation. A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poignant and sweeping story of hometowns and how they’re made—and kept alive—by the people who love them. 

USA; 120 min

Director: Joe Talbot

Stars: Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Rob Morgan, Tichina Arnold, Danny Glover

“The Last Black Man in San Francisco is an indelibly beautiful story of love, family and loss in America from two childhood friends turned filmmakers.
