Roseneath’s 35th Anniversary Season looks at communication, truth and reality through a modern lens – while celebrating our co-founders David S. Craig and Robert Morgan. In the fall we’re bringing back Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls by Dave Deveau – which follows the story of a young person questioning their gender identity – to parts of Ontario we didn’t reach with our first tour, including a week in Ottawa area schools with our partners at MASC. The winter months will see the return of Outside by Paul Dunn – which addresses homophobia and encourages the creation of Gay-Straight Alliances – that will be touring Ontario schools, venues across the United States as well as the Burlington Performing Arts Centre, the Rose Theatre in Brampton and the Grand Theatre in Kingston. In the spring we will round out the season with a new production of Head À Tête by David S. Craig and Robert Morgan – which takes place in a barren landscape where two strangers overcome their French-English language barriers. Please join us as we explore and share our common reality, our personal truths and how through communication and empathy we can support and care for each other.
