Roseneath Theatre’s 36th season – Hope for a Better World – encourages audiences to consider how we can better understand and support each other in today’s society. These five plays offer hope and a positive way forward for us all. First up is a remount of Beatriz Pizano’s La Maleta (The Suitcase) which focuses on the refugee and immigrant experience, incorporating both Spanish and English. In February, we will be presenting Djennie Laguerre’s Rendez-vous With Home for Black History/Future Month, which tells the story of two sisters, who are sent by their mother on a trip to Haiti to bury their father. At the end of February we’re remounting Paul Dunn’s Outside which encourages the creation of Gay-Straight Alliances, and will also be spending two weeks in Saskatchewan schools. In March and April, we revisit our unique production of Meet Cute, which looks at consent from multiple perspectives by playing the same conversation between two teens at a bus stop in three distinctly different ways. To round out our season in the spring, Roseneath will be presenting the Bad Hats Theatre production of Princess Frownsalot. This fun Canadian children’s book by John Bianchi has been given an incredibly creative adaptation for the stage by Fiona Sauder.

Roseneath was the first young peoples theatre company in Canada to offer an LGBTQ+ themed show for each grade level in one season (2017-18), from Kindergarten all the way to Grade 12. Premiering these three plays doubled the number of LGBTQ2S themed plays for young audiences in Canada. We are continuing our dedication to LGBTQ+ arts and education by offering this exciting line up of summer programming.
