NOTE FROM THE PLAYWRIGHT A few years back I was visiting my hometown of Brockville and decided to take a tour of our most famous building, Fulford Place. This Edwardian mansion on the banks of the St. Lawrence was once home to the world’s wealthiest family, the Fulfords, who made their fortune selling “Pink Pills for Pale People”. The tour included visiting the room where Mrs. Fulford introduced a select few of her friends to the weird world of séances. One of those friends happened to be Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King. I had heard of King’s ghostly interests before, but

something about being in the room where his journey into spiritualism began sparked a deeper exploration into our longest-serving and strangest prime minister. The result is this darkly comedic story of our country’s coming-of-age.

And in these most unprecedented times. He relocated to Montreal in 2018. Brian was recently reminded of Richard Shechner’s words: “Theatre is a peak experience and significantly different from other kinds of life because of its focus, intensity, and general visibility. But it is not separate from other kinds of life: It comes from them and blends back into them. To work from this perspective means to accept the audience as a potential ally, and to admit that without the audience collaboration no performance is possible.”

Sierra Alarie (Stage Manager) Sierra is thrilled to have the opportunity to work in Theatre again after a yearlong hiatus. Equity stage management apprenticeship credits include both the Montreal and Ottawa runs of The Mountaintop (Black Theatre Workshop/ Neptune Theatre), Birthmark (Teesri Duniya Theatre), both iterations of Around the World in 80 Days (Geordie/Theatre Lac Brome), Angélique (Black Theatre Workshop/Tableau D’Hôte Theatre), Mr. Goldberg Goes to Tel Aviv (Infinithéâtre),

A Montreal-based director, producer, actor, puppeteer, puppet maker and teacher, past projects with Infinithéâtre include Trench Patterns, Kafka’s Ape and Love, Child. His award-winning Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Stage Play (RustWerk ReFinery) based on Chester Brown’s graphic novel continues to tour occasionally across the country. Other directing credits include Indra’s Web (National Theatre School of Canada) and Fifteen Dogs (John Abbott College). The Water Chronicles, which he directed last year for Geordie Theatre, is currently nominated for several META awards. Puppet designs include Stars: Together (Crow’s Theatre), B-612 (La Roulotte), MacBeth – Walking Shadows (Shakespeare in the Ruff), The Nisei & the Narnauks (Persephone Productions), The Aeneid (Talisman Theatre) and The Heretics of Bohemia (Scapegoat Carnivale / Segal Centre).

About infinithéâtre

REFLECTING AND EXPLORING LIFE IN 21ST CENTURY QUÉBEC (In English) Infinithéâtre’s stages exciting, entertaining, relevant theatre that explores and reflects the issues, challenges and possibilities of contemporary Québec from the perspective of its diverse English-language minority. Our work is driven by the fundamental belief that theatre that speaks to and about the lives, the hopes and the tragedies of its home community has the best possibility of creating an electric connection between stage and audience that is the essence of great theatre. Hence our mission is to discover, develop, produce and broker the plays of English-language playwrights of Quebec. We have three separate tactics. Write-On-Q! is our annual playwriting competition. With total prize money of $5,000 it is the single most valuable literary competition in English Québec. Many Québec playwrights now admit they synchronize their creative writing clocks to the Tuesday after Labour Day, the annual deadline for our competition. WOQ! has, over the years, delivered much of Infinithéâtre’s programming. Pipeline, our year-end public reading series, features the winning plays from WOQ! Public discussions follow each of the play readings, with the feedback and audience reaction helping us develop the plays and program future seasons. A second fundamental axiom in Infinithéâtre’s drive to stage exciting theatre is our belief that performing in non-traditional venues heightens and focuses the audience’s attention and renders the whole experience more alive. A non-traditional venue gives a play both context and subtext. Our third fundamental axiom is our conviction that we need to reach out to, and dialogue with, senior high school and college students. Action Infini is our highly-developed

12 infinitheatre

school outreach program with teachers’ kits and in-class and post show discussions. We also, when possible, take our work directly to schools. We think it is vitally important to build future audiences for theatre. Infinithéâtre is: • Great new plays that come from and speak to our community. • Non-traditional performance venues • Reaching out to senior high school and college audiences.
