Yesterday marked the first day that the beloved A Company of Fools were back in our building to start rehearsals on Pomme and ‘Restes: Shipwrecked! On the Tempestuous Lost Island of Never. I say “beloved” because in fact, they really are beloved here. Their last show that they did here (A Midwinter’s Dream Tale from 2011-12) was so well liked, that when Eric Coates began working here, there was a vocal contingent among the staff that campaigned for their return during the Christmas season.

When I first began the task of curating a website inspired by the themes found in Anita Majumdar’s The Fish Eyes Trilogy with Brian Quirt (Artistic Director of Nightswimming Theatre; Director/Dramaturg of the Trilogy), and Rupal Shah, (Producer), it was after several months of working with Nightswimming and numerous discussions about the three plays.

Cyclist

Last fall’s inaugural Great Canadian Theatre Company Bike-A-Thon was such a huge success that it has become an annual fundraising event. This time riders had a choice of two routes. Both groups started off from the theatre on Wellington St W and followed bike paths along either side of the Ottawa River. The 18km ride I led crossed the Island Park Drive bridge to Quebec, then back over the Alexandria Bridge, before heading back along the river towards the theatre.

Playwright in Residence

As the new playwright-in-residence here at GCTC, developing a new work which centers on the famed Franklin Expedition, it was with just a wee bit of excitement that I turned on the news a few weeks ago to learn that one of the lost ships had in fact been discovered on the cold seabed of the Northwest Passage. As a playwright whose previous works have focused on obscure but pivotal moments in human history, it’s rewarding to learn that the subject of my fascination has just entered the realm of national relevance.

This September, the Fritzi is glad to welcome to the space local artists Josée Prud'homme and Joejene Santos. They are artists that have a great passion for what they do and what they create.  Both working with abstract forms, their works are landscapes of shape, movement and textures. Exploring themes from Emil Sher's The Boy in the Moon, the artwork asks the viewer to look for deeper meanings, for layers, new interpretations and new truths.
