The setting for this two act play is in a cottage somewhere in Ontario. Carson, a successful author has arrived at the end of the fall season to write his latest book. He chose this time of year to... More > be in complete isolation; with no phone, and away from his tormented life. Late one night, Carson is jolted awake by the sounds of an intruder climbing in through the window. He knocks the intruder out. The next morning, Troy, an angry teenaged delinquent regains concousness, and discovers Carson has chained him to a heavy metal bed. With unexpected revelations which turn the play on it's head, these two fierce opponents find themselves coming face to face with their inner demons, and an emerging unspoken trust. This award winning drama premiered at the Peterborough Theatre Guild in 2012, receiving standing ovations night after night.

Sam, Harry and Rainman are living on the streets of a major city. It's Christmas, and Rainman -a mentally challenged eighteen year old, has been given a frozen turkey for Christmas by a group of good... More > Samaritans. Because it is so important for Rainman to have a 'real Christmas', pondering how to cook this turkey becomes the focal point of the play. They are helped by Lilly the proverbial, eccentric bag lady who believes the turkey is a baby, and a street nurse- who has her own reasons for working with the homeless. This poignant and sometimes hilarious production is a roller-coaster of emotions that causes the audience to look through different eyes at the homeless folk that frequent our cities.< Less

HARRISON AINSWORTH Tower of London William Harrison Ainsworth, born at Manchester, England, Feb. 4, 1805, was a popular rather than a great writer. A solicitor's son, he was himself trained in the... More > law, but some adventures in journalism led him finally to the literary life, his first success as a writer of romance being scored with "Rookwood" in 1834. "Tower of London" was the fourth work of the novelist, and, according to Ainsworth himself, it was written chiefly with the aim of interesting his fellow-countrymen in the historical associations of the Tower. From the popularity of the romance it is reasonable to suppose that it fulfilled its author's hopes in this respect, though it must be confessed its history leaves a good deal to be desired.< Less

More > you can… well… blog off!! ;o) Maisy is seventeen and has reason to be seriously fed up.
