A MESSAGE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Dear Friends, I was recently asked in an interview why the Soulpepper audience is so passionately loyal. There are a few things that I believe inspire that loyalty and they have to do with excellence and intimacy. We put together, every year, a very ambitious slate of great plays from here and around the world and our mandate allows us to reach back into that rich pool of inherited works. So we begin with a head-start. We then bring to each of the plays an ensemble of artists that is as fine as any ensemble anywhere, and though there is always fresh blood, the core of the ensemble has been working together for decades. Having assembled a powerful and seasoned ensemble around a great play we give the production an extra helping of the single ingredient that can most positively impact the product itself… time… at least 50% more time than is the industry norm. Time to explore, time to rehearse, time to enrich. The next element to Soulpepper’s success is the intimacy of our venues. We tell BIG stories in wonderfully warm and intimate spaces. It makes all the difference in the world – But perhaps the most unique and vital aspect of what we do at Soulpepper is the creation of a place of belonging for artists, staff, students, and most importantly, you our audience. This is our number one priority, and your loyalty is our primary source of pride. I hope that over the next few months we will be able to welcome you (or hopefully welcome you back) to this place that we love, and together we may experience the social alchemy that only the theatre can provide. Please come whenever you can. Soulpepper belongs to you.

 

Yours, A L B E R T S C H U L T Z , Artistic Director

ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD TOM STOPPARD ( UK 1966 )

Two men sit and wait, summoned to the Danish court for a special assignment: discover what is wrong with Hamlet. Stoppard’s comic masterpiece follows these two as they negotiate their way around Elsinore and beyond, only to realize what little control they have over their fate. di r e c t e d by

TRUE WEST SAM SHEPARD ( US 1980 )

}{

Austin, a screenwriter, and Lee, a petty criminal, are recently reconciled brothers with little in common. Confined together in a suburban home, Austin prepares for a lucrative meeting with a Hollywood producer, a connection which prompts keen interest from Lee. Shepard’s searing black comedy takes apart the resentment of sibling estrangement to reveal that perceived differences are perhaps not all they seem. di r e c t e d by

First published privately at the turn of the last century, Schnitzler’s La Ronde was sensationally banned for obscenity, due to its frank sexual content, securing the play a place in dramatic immortality. Taking a circuitous route through ten interconnected sexual liaisons, La Ronde questions the nature of human contact, love, and fidelity. di r e c t e d by

JULY–SEPTEMBER

PART I: MILLENNIUM APPROACHES

PART II: PERESTROIKA

Encompassing the lives of seven individuals as they negotiate New York City during the AIDS crisis that wracked the world in the 1980s, Kushner looks to a deeply human series of reactions to a seemingly indiscriminate epidemic, and offers spiritual outlet for the redemption and reclamation of their souls.

In this stunning fi nale Kushner brings an otherworldly, angelic presence to protagonist Prior Walter as he and his fellow sufferers negotiate how their lives will either progress or end. Palliative confessions, realisations, and declarations of faith give way to hope for the future and a lesson in humanity.

parts i & ii are best seen chronologically. Marathon performances are available, see calendar.

}{

{14

TABLE MANNERS As seen from the dining room, a secretive dirty weekend away for the affable librarian Norman turns into a series of misunderstandings, trysts, and hilarious revelations when his wife unexpectedly arrives, asking questions. A comic feast where chairs and food are scarce, but laughs are served aplenty.

LIVING TOGETHER

ROUND AND ROUND THE GARDEN

Shifting the action to the living room, infidelity, changing stories, and confusion mean no one is relaxing with their feet up! As the fallout from Norman’s opportunism spreads to everyone in the house, the living room sparks with life, controversy, and love, all wrapped up in a bearskin rug.

Hilarity makes its way outside! As the chaos associated with Norman’s philandering rages inside the house, the garden provides a less than ideal place for reflection and calm. In this brilliant third instalment, Norman gormlessly contemplates the moon, the stars, and his pyjamas, hoping for a joyous roll in the grass!
