THE LADYKILLERS
Mar 29 @ 2:00 pm

THE ANNAPOLIS DISTRICT DRAMA GROUP, Directed by Simon Bonnington, presents

THE LADYKILLERS

Main Cast: Louis Harvey (David Witherow), Professor Marcus (George Clairmont), Harry Robinson (Ryan Hebert), Major Courtney (Bliss Om Rae), Mrs Wilberforce (Nancy Anderson), One-Round (Tim Danttouze). Photo by ANDREW TOLSON

Posing as a string quintet of amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang of inept ne’er-do-well villains rent rooms in the lopsided house of an elderly widow, the sweet and eccentric Mrs Wilberforce. The crooks plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus’ brilliantly conceived security-van heist.

The police are left stumped, but Mrs Wilberforce tumbles to the truth of their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?

Based upon the classic Ealing Studios 1955 movie that starred Alec Guiness, Herbert Lom and Peter Sellers, the stage adaptation of The Ladykillers was written by Graham Linehan in 2011 and premièred at the Liverpool Playhouse (England) later that year, with Peter Capaldi taking on the mantle as the insane but brilliant Marcus.

The play had its North American premiere last year at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Using a innovate set design which integrates two storeys within, as well as roof top, and rail-tracks below, Director Simon Bonnington is delighted to bring this play to the stage of King’s Theatre with the Annapolis District Drama Group – only the second production of the show on this continent!

SORRY WE MISSED YOU
Mar 31 @ 7:30 pm

BAFTA Nominee for Best British Film

Directed by Ken Loach

Principal Cast: Kris Hitchen, Debbie Honeywood, Rhys Stone, Katie Proctor, Ross Brewster

The British working class is once again the empathetic subject of Ken Loach’s SORRY WE MISSED YOU, a wrenching, intimate family drama that exposes the dark side of the so-called “gig economy”.

Ricky, a former laborer, and his home-attendant wife Abby—who lost their home in the 2008 financial crash—are desperate to get out of their financial distress. When an opportunity comes up for Ricky to work as his own boss as a delivery driver, they sell their only asset, Abby’s car, to trade it in for a shiny new white van and the dream that Ricky can work his way up to someday owning his own delivery franchise.

But the couple find their lives are quickly pushed further to the edge by an unrelenting work schedule, a ruthless supervisor and the needs of their two teenage children.  Capturing the sacred moments that make a family as well as the acts of desperation they need to undertake to make it through each day, this universal story is skillfully and indelibly told with unforgettable performances and a searing script by Loach’s long-time collaborator Paul Laverty.

A drama of such searing human empathy and quotidian heartbreak that its powerful climactic scenes actually impede your breathing.”

—David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

Gillian Anderson (X-Files, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) lead in All About Eve, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing. Legend. True star of the theatre. The spotlight is hers, always has been. But now there’s Eve. Her biggest fan. Young, beautiful Eve. The golden girl, the girl next door. But you know all about Eve…don’t you…?

Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world’s most innovative theatre directors, Ivo van Hove (Network, NT Live: A View from the Bridge), asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.

PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE
Apr 14 @ 7:30 pm

Directed by Céline Sciamma

Principal Cast: Noémie Merlant, Adèle Haenel, Luàna Bajrami, Valeria Golino

Winner of both the Queer Palm and Best Screenplay Awards at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, the fourth feature from French writer-director Céline Sciamma is an exquisite portrait of hidden love, art, eros, and the gaze.

Set in 18th-century Brittany, Portrait of a Lady on Fire follows Marianne (Noémie Merlant), an artist commissioned by an Italian noblewoman (Valeria Golino) to paint a portrait of her reclusive daughter, Héloïse (Adèle Haenel, who is soon to be married. However, there are peculiar conditions of this assignment; Marianne must never announce to Héloïse the objective of her visit. Instead, Marianne is to act as a companion to Héloïse, escorting her on walks while closely observing her subject so as to render her likeness on canvas in secret.

Dissatisfied with her initial portrait, Marianne petitions her patroness for a second chance. In frustration and growing kinship, Marianne confesses the ruse to Héloïse, procuring her cooperation and allowing the women to forge a much closer bond — one that will lead to a passionate intimacy.

“A Masterpiece. A devastatingly unforgettable story of love and memory. Razor-sharp and shatteringly romantic. – Indiewire

ANTIGONE
Apr 28 @ 7:30 pm

NATIONAL CANADIAN FILM DAY PRESENTATION

Best Canadian Feature Film, TIFF

Canada’s Oscar Submission

Gripping, powerful, and of-the-moment, Antigone loosely adapts SophoclesGreek tragedy and situates it in contemporary Montreal. The latest from critically acclaimed Québécois writer-director Sophie Deraspe, the film is a compassionate family drama that doesnt hold back on its indictment of the current refugee and immigrant experience in North America.

Following the murder of their parents, Antigone, her sister Ismène, her brothers Étéocle and Polynice, and their grandmother Ménécée find refuge in Montreal. They live a quiet, modest life in a tiny apartment in a working-class neighbourhood. A straight-A student seemingly destined for greatness, Antigone (masterfully played by Nahéma Ricci in her first leading role) is the glue that holds the family together. Tragedy strikes when Étéocle is wrongfully gunned down by police during the arrest of Polynice, a small-time drug dealer. Motivated by her sense of duty towards her family and fuelled by the memory she cherishes of her dead parents, Antigone decides to jeopardize her own future to preserve that of her family.

Winner of the Canada Goose ® Award for Best Canadian Feature Film at the 44th Toronto International Film Festival, Antigone acutely explores familial sacrifice, the burden of responsibility, and the nature of justice with exceptional depth and nuance. Although inspired by a story 2,500 years old, Deraspes film is a timely meditation — one that prompts serious reflection on immigrant life in an ostensibly welcoming Canada.

The film is an incisive critique of the power imbalance between citizens and immigrants and the hypocrisy of an unjust justice system. It jolts the viewer out of complacency.”  — NOW Magazine

SONG OF NAMES
May 12 @ 7:30 pm

Acclaimed filmmaker François Girard returns to the classical music milieu of The Red Violin. And like that film, The Song of Names sets personal, professional, and family tragedies against sweeping historical events.

Constructed like a detective mystery on a grand scale, the film opens the night of the much-anticipated first public performance by Dovidl Rapoport, a Polish musical prodigy. When he doesnt show up, his best friend Martin is left to tell the packed theatre that the performance will not go on. Decades later, an adult Martin (Tim Roth, Luce, October Gale), serving as a judge in a musical competition, watches a young student prepare to play in Dovidls unique style. This moment sends Martin, over the objections of his wife Helen, on a transcontinental search. As the mystery of the disappearance unravels, Martin finds himself consumed by memories of the deep bond between the two boys — and also uncovering elements of Dovidls tormented life that Martin simply couldnt have fathomed at the time.

“With a score by the legendary Howard Shore, the music in THE SONG OF NAMES is remarkable. It lays the emotional foundation for an epic about the pursuit of beauty and the fragility at the heart of every friendship.”  – RogerEbert.com

THE MAVENS: Lynn Miles, Susan Crowe & Shari Ulrich
May 30 @ 7:30 pm

Three of Canada’s finest singer-songwriters together in one gorgeous show. You will laugh, cry and be transported by folk music at its best.

TICKETS ON SALE NOW (order online below or call the Box Office at 902-532-7704)

  • Member: $27.83 + HST = $32
  • General: $31.30 + HST = $36

LYNN MILES is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters. With twelve albums to her credit, the winner of multiple Canadian Folk Music awards (2011 English Songwriter of the Year), and a 2003 Juno award for Roots and Traditional Solo Album of the Year, she has certainly found her strength over time. Through a career that has seen her move from Ottawa to Los Angeles and back again, with stops in Nashville and Austin TX., and a healthy touring schedule that regularly takes her through the US, Europe and across Canada, she has always created and performed music with unbridled feeling and vulnerability. Lynn’s song “Three Chords and the Truth” was recently chosen as the closing song on the popular BBC TV series “Case Histories”, and her new release “Downpour” has been receiving glowing reviews.

 

SUSAN CROWE is often described as a “writer’s writer”, and is one of Canada’s most respected singer songwriters in the folk genre. At once complex, challenging and accessible, Susan’s intelligent and moving songs have captivated audiences and reviewers from coast to coast, continent to continent. She possesses, in the words of Britain’s Folk Roots magazine, “that rare ability of crafting a lyric that bears scrutiny on its own terms.” That rare ability has earned her two Juno nominations, and nominations from both the West Coast and East Coast Music Awards. No stranger to King’s Theatre, we are THRILLED to have Susan back with THE MAVENS.

 

SHARI ULRICH: For over four decades, accomplished singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Shari Ulrich has been winning hearts across North America with her voice, songs and on-stage charisma. A two-time JUNO-winner among other awards, she has recorded 25 albums as a solo artist and with the legendary Pied Pumkin, The Hometown Band, UHF, BTU and The High Bar Gang.
