No Sex Please…We’re British

 

by Anthony Marriot & Alistair Foot

is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

When a postal accident lands boxes of Scandinavian naughty pictures in the living room of young newlyweds Peter and Frances, they must do everything they can to get rid of it before Peter’s mother shows up, not to mention his uptight boss at the bank! Add in a bumbling best friend, a couple of policemen, and two “ladies of the evening” and this day will be one the happy couple will not soon forget! This zippy farce ran for over eight years in London!

The Chalk Garden

 

by Enid Bagnold

is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH INC.

Mrs. St. Maugham lives in her country house in a village in Sussex, where the garden is composed of lime and chalk. She is taking care of her teenage grandchild, Laurel, who has been setting fires. Miss Madrigal, an expert gardener, is hired as a governess, despite her lack of references.

This endearing play never seems to age, perhaps because its characters are written with such wit and brittle cleverness

Bare Bear Bones

 

by Michael Grant

is produced by special arrangement with Playwrights Guild of Canada.

Norman and Ruth are empty nesters who, after 25 years of raising children discover they have lost the spark their marriage once had. On the advice of a discount marriage councilor, they return to a place where they remember being in love, The Bear Bones Family Campground. Arriving late due to a less than road-worthy tent trailer, they set up camp in the dark. The next morning sheds light, not only on their campsite, but also on the fact that since camping there years ago with their children, Bear Bones Family Campground has also seen some changes and became The Bear Bones Alternative Lifestyle Campground. Unable to leave, due to a broken trailer, this very conservative duo must work together to avoid all “that flops and jiggles” on the other side of the hedge while trying to save their marriage. Bare Bear Bones is a story of love and communication.

Fort Hemlock

 

by Emily Duberville

A World Premiere produced by special arrangement with the author

This original play is being produced for the first time at The Station Theatre. The story is an apocryphal account of a fight that took place many years ago between rival groups of farmers. All the characters are fictitious. The author has “embroidered” where necessary to create a compelling story, but the essential features of the Smiths Falls landscape at the time are from research. The place names, the presence of Romany in the area and events like The Turkey Fair are all real.

Who Dunit?

 

by C.B. Gilford

is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

One of the most original comedy-mystery plots of all time. It first ran as a short story in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, and was later a hit on “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”, translated into a dozen foreign languages, reprinted in several anthologies. What happens when a famous mystery writer is murdered, goes to Heaven and discover’s that not even St. Michael knows who murdered him? There’s only one answer: Saint Michael sends him back to earth to relive the past twenty-four hours of his life in order to solve the murder before it is committed. The writer discovers everybody he knows has a good reason to kill him! And then – is he just going to sit there and let it happen a second time? So the writer must outwit both the murderer and the Archangel Michael.
