Life is good in Port Alison, Manitoba—Thursday night hockey, beers at The Peg, nice people. But lately Gordy’s interests lean more toward The Magic Flute and pottery classes. When his pal, Brendan, is gifted two all-expense paid tickets on a gay cruise, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime—to experience life far from Canada! In this quick-change comedy where five actors play a ship-load of characters, small chances might lead to big changes. But can Gordy step out of his comfort zone?

Recommendation: ​High school and above. Contains adult language​, sexuality and strobe lighting effects.

Somewhere in the Jim Crow South, the sky burns red. A church bombing has rocked the Civil Rights Movement to its core, and Reverend Charles Grace must galvanize the people with messages of hope. It is his wife Olivia, however, who skillfully crafts his speeches and delivery. But her ability to play the supportive spouse is cracking under the weight of too many secrets, too many regrets and life lived in the shadows. “This is language as lush catharsis,” proclaimed New York Magazine.

Recommendation: ​High school and above. ​Contains sexuality, strobe lighting effects, and the smoking of non-toxic electronic cigarettes.

A “softhearted comedy freckled with dark reflections” (The New York Times) by the author of Moonstruck and Doubt. Near Killucan, Ireland, Tony Reilly schemes to sell the family farm and disinherit his son, Anthony. Standing in his way is a small plot of land belonging to the neighbor, Rosemary—and her long-simmering grudge. Destiny—whether embracing or fighting it—means everything in this very Irish story told with a rich tapestry of language, compassion and a few surprises.

Recommendation: ​High school and above. Contains haze and the smoking of non-toxic electronic cigarettes.
