ADDG on SCREEN
Sep 12 @ 7:30 pm

Nancy Anderson and Gloria Sasura in Is It Wednesday?

The Annapolis District Drama Group (ADDG) is very excited to unveil six Stage-to-Screen short-plays! 

Developed in conjunction with King’s Theatre, the six Ten Minute plays were carefully selected to allow rehearsal and performance while observing appropriate physical-distancing. Performed on-location at venues in and around town, including a local church, Fort Anne Cafe, Sissiboo Coffee shop, the Annapolis Royal Wharf, and the King’s stage, they were filmed and edited by professionally-experienced cinematographers and cutting room crew. With this project, ADDG has taken community theatre to a new level in Annapolis Royal, despite the current limitations brought by the Covid pandemic!

The plays originate from the pens of award-winning playwrights – as local as Granville Beach, to western Canada, the US, and as far-flung as Australia. The writers themselves have expressed an equal excitement to see their work translated into this new medium, and give their wholehearted blessing to the project!

Finn Hafting & Nina Habinski in Communication Gap

Each play was created with six very experienced local directors and casts that include many of the Drama Group’s finest actors — including outstanding youth actors. It’s a mix of comedy, pathos & intrigue all in good measure. They will make you laugh, make you cry and make you think; and best of all, they will entertain you.

All six ADDG-to-Screens will be shown each night. A Q&A with selected members of the team, hosted by Simon Bonnington, will follow.

Reserved seating. Come out and see your favourite actors on the Big Screen at King’s and support your local Theatre.

THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD
Oct 2 @ 7:30 pm
Director Armando Iannucci (The Death of Stalin) brings his sardonic wit — and a stellar cast that includes Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Capaldi, and Ben Whishaw — to Charles Dickens’ classic autobiographical novel.

From the imaginations of Oscar nominees Armando Iannucci, director of TIFF 2017’s The Death of Stalin, and Simon Blackwell, who co-wrote Iannucci’s breakthrough feature In the Loop, comes this gloriously frenetic adaptation of one of Charles Dickens’ most beloved novels. Starring Oscar nominee Dev Patel and featuring an august supporting cast that includes Oscar winner Tilda Swinton and Golden Globe winners Hugh Laurie and Ben Wishaw, The Personal History of David Copperfield is gloriously entertaining, careening through 19th-century England as it tracks its hero’s zigzag destiny.

Born six months after the death of his father, David (Patel) is lucky to be raised by a loving mother. But when Mum weds the dour Edward Murdstone, David is shipped off to the cottage — actually a capsized boat — of his housekeeper’s family. These peculiar accommodations prove to be only the first of David’s numerous temporary abodes, which include an oppressive boarding school and the home of his eccentric aunt Betsey Trotwood (Swinton). Wherever David goes, whether living in poverty or comfort, he writes pithy impressions of all those he encounters — impressions that will one day constitute his autobiography.

With its refreshing casting and ceaseless visual surprises — walls literally fall away to make room for flashbacks — Iannucci and Blackwell’s David Copperfield transposes its source material into a decidedly 21st-century cinematic context. Yet the film never loses sight of its central ideas: that great art is born of great experience, and one’s true fortune can be measured in friends. – CAMERON BAILEY

TAMPOPO
Oct 16 @ 7:30 pm

The tale of an eccentric band of culinary ronin who guide the widow of a noodle-shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe, this rapturous “ramen western” by Japanese director Juzo Itami is an entertaining, genre-bending adventure underpinned by a deft satire of the way social conventions distort the most natural of human urges—our appetites. Interspersing the efforts of Tampopo (Nobuko Miyamoto) and friends to make her café a success with the erotic exploits of a gastronome gangster and glimpses of food culture both high and low, the sweet, sexy, and surreal Tampopo is a lavishly inclusive paean to the sensual joys of nourishment, and one of the most mouthwatering examples of food on film ever made.

Captured live in 2019 from The Old Vic in London, Academy Award-winner Sally Field (Steel Magnolias, Brothers & Sisters) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, Independence Day) star in Arthur Miller’s blistering drama All My Sons.

America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business.

But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.

Jeremy Herrin (NT Live: This House, People, Places & Things) directs a cast including Jenna Coleman (Victoria), and Colin Morgan (Merlin).

All My Sons is an Old Vic co-production with Headlong. Headlong makes exhilarating theatre for audiences across the UK. A touring company with a big imagination, we interrogate the contemporary world through a programme of fearless new writing, re-imagined classics and potent twentieth century plays.

KUESSIPAN
Oct 27 @ 7:30 pm

Adapted from Naomi Fontaine’s acclaimed novel, Kuessipan is Myriam Verreault’s first narrative feature. In a Quebec Innu community, Mikuan (Sharon Fontaine-Ishpatao) and Shaniss (Yamie Grégoire) struggle to maintain their close friendship when they clash over their diverging ambitions. When Mikuan falls in love with a white boy and starts to consider a life beyond their tiny reserve, her bond with Shaniss and her family is put to the test. A coming-of-age story told with humour, tenderness, and heartbreak, Kuessipan is a poignant exploration of evolving friendship and dreams, and the bonds that will forever root us in our culture. Kuessipan is told through an Indigenous lens yet remains relevant to us all as we discover the power of community — along with the individual strength it takes to follow our own path.
