Mainstage Series

Mother of the Maid by Jane Anderson
September 13, 2019 - October 5, 2019

Isabelle Arc knows what her teenage daughter Joan needs: discipline, a loving husband, and to stop communing with God. As Joan hurtles toward her destiny as the Maid of Orleans, Isabelle must care for the extraordinary child who belongs not just to her, but to all of France.

"Oh my sweet girl, don't you worry about Saint Catherine. Your mama is right here."

Frankenstein: Lost in Darkness adapted by Peter Church from Mary Shelley's novel
October 18, 2019 - November 2, 2019
a guest production by Wireless Wings

Captain Robert Walton has a nightmarish tale to tell – the story of young Victor Frankenstein and his quest to create life. A haunting fable of hubris and loss re-interpreted as an immersive audio drama for the Pacific Theatre stage.

"It is true, we shall be monsters, cut off from all the world; but on that account we shall be more attached to one another."

A Christmas Carol adapted by Ron Reed from Charles Dickens' novel 
 November 29, 2019 - December 21, 2019

It's Christmas Eve and Ebenezer Scrooge is drifting off to sleep. . . but he cannot imagine what the night has in store for him. Told with humour and Dickens' own transcendent prose, Ron Reed embodies Scrooge and more than thirty characters in the greatest Christmas story ever written.

"I will live in the past, the present, and the future.
The spirits of all three shall strive within me."

Christmas Presence
December 15 - December 17 2019, December 22 - December 23 2019 (Valley: December 21, 2019)

Pacific Theatre's favourite Christmas tradition. With poems and prose that range from the heartfelt to the hilarious mixed in with songs both old and new, Christmas Presence is an intimate and warm way to usher in the holiday spirit.

The un-slickest Christmas show in town!

Gramma by Mark Yi
January 17, 2020 - February 1, 2020

Korean-born Maki is excited to begin her new life in a Regina basement suite, but her elderly landlady seems determined to treat her as nothing more than a servant. Playwright and actor Maki Yi (Suitcase Stories) returns to Pacific Theatre with a new poetic tale of human connection in the loneliest of circumstances.

" 'Saumyonsoe jongdunda' – a Korean saying. You become attached as you fight."

Best of Enemies by Mark St. Germain
February 28, 2020 - March 21, 2020

Civil rights activist Ann Atwater is fighting a pitched battle to protect her children. C.P. Ellis is the Exalted Cyclops of the local KKK chapter. When a Washington mediator arrives in Durham to institute nationally-mandated desegregation, Ann and C.P. are forced into an uneasy truce as they wrestle for control of the future. Based on true events.

"Right now I'll consider it a success if you two don't kill each other."

Love/Sick by John Cariani
April 3, 2020 - April 25, 2020
a guest production from Jalen Saip

It's Friday night at the SuperCenter, and love is in the air. This darker companion piece to Almost, Maine brings nine slightly twisted and completely hilarious short stories of love and loss set in an alternate suburban reality. An unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone.

"I think that's part of being in love... understanding what comes after the first-sight part."

The Trip to Bountiful by Horton Foote
May 15, 2020 - June 6, 2020

Aging widow Carrie Watts longs to escape the confined Houston apartment she shares with her placid son and imperious daughter-in-law. Desperate to return to her childhood homestead in Bountiful, Texas before it's too late, she steals away on a Greyhound bus to journey in search of freedom and home.

"I gotta get back and smell the salt air and work that dirt. I haven't had my hands in dirt in twenty years."
