LUNDUNTOWN by Alain Mercieca and Glyn Jones
In the caverns of Lundun’s East End, 50-year-old Charlie Dibbles, a man of the streets, immigrant arranger and teller of tall tales keeps to his philosophy of being a World Citizen, never attuning to any family, societal or national responsibilities. But Jordan Dibbles, his nephew from Westmount, pushes all of his mantras to their ends, on a mission to convince Charlie to come back to Canada for personal reasons. Get connected, put on the java and the chorizo poppers; Stumble and you might just fall forward with this ‘trilingual’ romp through life.

Q – MARTIN PERIZZOLO

Wednesday, October 23rd, 8pm

The F word

F, as in fucking, as in what couples do in a relationship. Martin Perizzolo was one of the only stand-up comedians in Quebec who was still a virgin on the subject, saving himself, he was waiting for the right moment and the right crowd. Sex. A cliche theme, but still very much in the spotlight, sex sells! Free or expensive. It liberates, it exhilarates, it sets us free. It defines us, it gives us life ; it destroys, it is shared, it isolates, it’s soft, hard, old or young. It comes, it goes, with screams and moans, it sets us apart and brings us together! Not sexpert, comedian! It’s not a conference…
A personal journey, a standard format, 60 minutes, 18 and over.
Writers: Martin Perizzolo and Sébastien Ravary

FIN

October 30th to November 2nd

“The only Haunted Theatrical Experience In The City.”
We all know how it ends up…There are rumours and whispers of strange tales of ritual, sacrifice, and powerful orders that trace their origins to the very dawn of recorded time. You want to look away. You close your eyes. You don’t think about the grand scheme and it’s terrifying consequences—But someone IS!
This Halloween, Theatre Ste-Catherine will throw back the curtain and expose the puppet masters- the people pulling the strings in the dark. Join us, if you dare, as we explore the ending, the beginning, and everything that came between. But be warned—this is one truth that may not set you free…

A sinister, psycho-sexual treat for the senses and the senseless.

15 reasons not to be in a play

Wednesday April 30th, 8PM



This is a play about not being in a play, ironically expressed through a hilarious series of monologues, duets and ensemble scene.

Guest Artist – Improv Storytelling Workshop

Sunday, May 26th, 12:30PM – 4:30PM
Peter Stevens has been performing, coaching, and teaching improv for fifteen years. When he’s in town, we often have him as a guest improv teacher because of his passion for the art and detailed lessons. He’s eager to share from his wealth of experience and has a lot to offer all players, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned vet. In this four-hour workshop, we’ll learn and develop our core skills to perform improvised stories. The focus will begin on openings, and setting ourselves up to find the heart of a scene, and move toward finding natural and rewarding endings to our tales. Peter believes that his instruction should be quantifiable, we will walk away with specific habits for crafting better stories.
