Annual Lawyer Play: War of Two Worlds



War of Two Worlds was written by our own Eric Coates and Hugh Neilson

It’s 1949 and Ottawa radio station CCTC is in financial trouble. Now a rag-tag team of voice actors must put on a radio play version of The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells while saving the station from ruin. Will the team be able to pull it off?

This is GCTC/CCLA’s 20th Annual Lawyer Play, and 23 of your favourite lawyers from law firms across the capital will be participating.

Plus, GCTC pulls out all the stops for each gala performance, with free samples, decorations, Instagram opportunities and more.

Please note that our hearing assistance system is currently unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working hard to solve the problem.

Charity Partner

The 20th Annual Lawyer Play raises funds for GCTC as well as our charity partner, St. Mary’s Home.

St. Mary’s Home is an Ottawa-based social service agency that provides a full range of programs and services for young pregnant women, young moms and dads, and their infants and young children.
