Theatre UBC 2011/2012 Season
The Trial of Judith K.
September 29 – October 8, 2011
Roughly based on The Trial byFranz Kafka, this black comedy by Vancouver’s Sally Clark follows a modern business woman, Judith K., who finds herself accused of an unknown crime. The harder she delves into the ensuing bureaucratic nightmare, the more firmly she is bound by it, and the more obscure the reasons for her conviction become. Nominated for the Dora Mavor Moore Award and Governor General’s Award for “Best Play”
Problem Child and The End of Civilization
February 9 – 18, 2012
In these two one-act plays a single seedy motel room houses the world of one of Canada’s most accomplished playwrights, George F. Walker. Fiercely funny and equally heartbreaking, Problem Child asks the question “how far would you go to get your baby back?” Holed up in a cheap motel, two young parents impatiently await a social worker’s verdict while fending off the antics of a drunken innkeeper. The End of Civilization is a gripping stage-noir thriller about an average couple who are driven to cross legal and moral boundaries in order to avoid financial ruin. Both of these tales from the gritty side of life are infused with a dark hilarity.
March 22 – 31, 2012
Shakespeare’s brooding tragedy digs into the dark territory of man’s ambition and greed. Emboldened by the visions of three witches, Lord Macbeth and his Lady slaughter their way to the Scottish throne. Fresh horrors unfold as violence breeds violence, and a reign born in blood quickly spirals out of control.
