The Mystery Play

by Josh MacDonald

August 9th – September 3rd

This summer, the mystery starts at home… Crime-solving nun Vivian Salter has returned to her family home in Parrsboro, N.S., in order to care for her ailing father. Salter is struggling with her faith, as her father’s senility enters an increasingly difficult chapter when in the adjoining suite next door moves a young schoolteacher, along with her newly-wed husband. From Salter’s vantage, this couple-next-door seems perfect, and very much in love… until they don’t. By creeping attrition, Salter begins to fear for the safety of the woman on the other side of the wall. Despite herself, the flinty nun gets drawn, once more, into mystery. But this time, it’s a frightful mystery that threatens to affect them all, as it hits closer… and closer… to home.

New Waterford Boy: A Ceilidh

by Richie Wilcox

Heist Production

This is a tribute to the Cape Breton man I never was and never will be. This is a tribute to Cape Bretoners who have the songs of miners and fisherman embedded into their hearts and souls whether they have set foot in a mine, or cast a net, or not. This is a night of storytelling to pay respect to the Cape Breton of my childhood, with hope for the future. This is a tribute to the Cape Breton man I am and all the different types of Cape Breton man there can be. This is my Cape Breton … where I can be Rita MacNeil’s nephew for a week, I can be a superhero and conquer a junior high dance and I can belt the tunes of Allister MacGillivray, the Rankin Family and more songs we all know, all night long.

by Vern Thiessen

In July 1957, the world was rife with post-war wounds and nuclear arms race fears. In the midst of all the mounting anxiety, leading scientists and academics, world-renowned ‘thinkers’ were invited to a conference in humble Pugwash, NS, the first conference of its kind to address their role in creating and alleviating these fears.
