If clothes make the man, they can undo him. For Canadian Stage's 30th, Morris Panych and Wendy Gorling's theatrical phenomenon returns as a world premiere opera on its 20th anniversary of creation. With a libretto by award-winning Panych based on Gogol's classic 19th century novella, and music by James Rolfe, one of Canada's finest composers, the story follows a lowly office worker whose uneventful life is turned upside down when he's robbed of his new overcoat. The Overcoat: an Opera sparkles with the trademark wit and intricate choreography that propelled the work to international acclaim.

A bright new comedy from a fresh Canadian-Italian voice

From the award-winning creator of the hit comedy 8 Ways My Mother Was Conceived, and Wildside Festival favourite In Search of Mrs. Pirandello, comes a new family saga about two second generation Italian-Canadian brothers: an uptight, upwardly mobile lawyer running for office; and his kid brother, who’d rather party than work. After the sudden death of their parents, they must decide whether to hold onto the family home, a rundown relic stuffed to the gills with memories, secrets and a lifetime of worthless junk. To move forward, they need to let go...

The Fine sisters have returned home from the funeral of their recently deceased father. Throughout the funeral party, the women take refuge in the attic, once the center for childhood games, where they comfort and torment each other with unfinished business. Now orphans, the sisters must resurrect the family of their memories, and re-negotiate their relationship as adults. The emotions rage, tempered only by the search for their mother's long lost pearls. This romp in the attic reminds the sisters of their childhood and forces them to redefine their future together.

“A remarkable balancing act of broad comedy and real drama.”

—The Globe and Mail

Gracie’s world is full of faith and family, but as a fifteen year-old in a polygamous community, she feels increasing pressure to conform. With deep empathy and compassion, the playwright takes us into young Gracie’s world, where we discover what it’s like to grow up in an uncommon environment.

Curtis Colby, an American war-deserter in Canada, is caught with a fake passport. While they try to decide what to do with him, Colby is pulled between a holding cell in the present-day, his time in Iraq, and a small town in Manitoba, Canada, where he and his wife Jessica are desperately trying to lead a normal life.

Caught in a tug-of-war between his past and the present, Colby has to find his way out of the holding cell, get out of Iraq and find a way to stay in present-day Canada, pushing his way through bureaucracy as the traumas of war come to a head.

Deserter explores moral behaviour in a complex world, mixing human struggles with political events, and raises questions about the relationship between civilians and soldiers in countries with (supposedly) volunteer armies. Curtis Colby, an American war-deserter in Canada, is caught with a fake passport. While they try to decide what to do with him, Colby is pulled between a holding cell in the present-day, his time in Iraq, and a small town in Manitoba, Canada, where he and his wife Jessica are desperately trying to lead a normal life.
