On 31 August 1939, days before Britain declares war on Germany, journalist Walter Burns is preoccupied by conflicts closer to home in Chicago. A notorious murderer has escaped from police custody - Walter could be on the verge of covering the biggest story of his career. Meanwhile, his ex-wife and star reporter, Hildy Johnson, makes an unexpected return to the press room in order to deliver some startling news of her own. As Walter tries to win Hildy back, can she resist chasing one last scoop? A stylish adaption of the classic 1940’s screwball comedy.
The Ottawa legal community continues its proud tradition of philanthropy with the annual Lawyer Play, and invites you to be a part of it!
What can over 240 volunteer actors (seasoned lawyers, Judges, Masters and politicians as well as promising newcomers), putting in many hundreds of hours of rehearsal time (unbilled!) accomplish over 12 years? In addition to 12 wonderful, dramatic, side-splitting, and always entertaining productions, they can gross well over $900,000 and have a significant charitable impact!
