When a crusty, down-on-his-luck WW2 veteran reluctantly makes the trip to Juno Beach to honour his brother Chester, his encounter with a precocious ten-year-old challenges the old soldier to confront some long-ignored ghosts. Born at Pacific Theatre in 2002, Jake has spent the past three years playing to standing ovations all across Canada – and now he's coming home! The most charming, heart-warming, and laugh-out-loud-funny one-woman-shows you'll ever see.

Written and performed by Julia Mackey.
Directed by Dirk Van Stralen

Rikers Island. Two men sit in solitary confinement, 23 hours a day. Lucius Jenkins is a serial killer who awaits execution, Angel Cruz stands accused of a murder he doesn't believe was a crime. One has found God, the other needs to find himself. Visceral, gritty, harrowing – an uncompromising drama about contradiction, contrition and hypocrisy by the author of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot.

Director: Angela Konrad.

Fire-breathing. A probing, intense portrait of lives behind bars, it has the courage of its intellectual restlessness. Written in flame. [ New York Times ]
Ventures into the terra incognita of contemporary theatre – theatrical and intellectual waters for which others lack the temerity or strength to tread. Layered with humor and passion. [ Curtain Up ]

When a young Jewish prodigy paints The Brooklyn Crucifixions, the reaction of his Orthodox community forces a terrible decision – between family and vocation, between his love for God and his desperate need to make art. A poignant coming of age story, as intimate as a family dinner and as vast as a young man's dreams. Heartbreaking, triumphant.

Director: Morris Ertman.
Featuring: Katharine Venour and Gio Macibob.

A truly beautiful theatrical experience. Ninety fast-moving minutes that sparkle with life. [Talkin' Broadway]
A marvelous evening of theatre: intimate, sincere, magical. [ Philadelphia City Paper ]

“It's important for more attention to be paid to this issue so that every person is aware that the communist regime in China is engaged in this type of ghoulish crime.”
- U.S. Representative Dana Rohrabacher

David Matas, senior legal counsel for B’nai Brith Canada and a member of the Order of Canada, and former Canadian cabinet minister and crown prosecutor David Kilgour were nominated for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize for their intensive investigation over a four-year period into the organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners in China. Their work had culminated into Bloody Harvest: The killing of Falun Gong for their organs, which was published in late 2009.

Falun Gong is a traditional Chinese spiritual discipline consisting of moral teachings, a meditation, and four gentle exercises. At the core of Falun Gong are the values of truth, compassion, and forbearance. However, it has been banned in China since 1999 even though it has proven to benefit both the physical and mental health.
