Bad Jews – The Segal Centre for Performing Arts


Following last year’s sold out run, Bad Jews is back at the Segal Centre starting November 8!

From the synopsis on the Segal’s website:

“When three cousins gather in a cramped Manhattan apartment to mourn the death of their beloved grandfather and fight over a precious family heirloom, they learn there is much more at stake than who gets what. Bursting with crisp, fast-paced dialogue, Bad Jews is an exciting exploration of faith, family and legacy that is as thought-provoking and poignant as it is viciously funny.”

Bad Jews runs from November 8 – 26 at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts. For more information and for tickets please click here.

Late Company – d² productions

Is it possible to save a vulnerable child if their hurt is a secret? Late Company is a poignantly relevant contemporary story of forgiveness, culpability and reprisal. Set over the course of one evening, a family stricken by the loss of their son, who was bullied, at least in part, for his sexuality, attempts to build a bridge instead of placing blame, with mixed results. It’s cluttered, unsettling, funny, and before our eyes we witness grief move to healing.

Late Company  runs from November 8-12 and November 16-19 at the MainLine Theatre. For a detailed schedule and ticketing information please click here.


The Hockey Sweater: A Musical – The Segal Centre for Performing Arts


Roch Carrier’s classic children’s story is coming to the stage at the Segal Centre just as the weather here in Montreal is becoming decidedly wintry. Let’s celebrate everything good about winter with some family friendly Canadian nostalgia. AND it’s a musical!

The Hockey Sweater plays from October 19 to November 12 at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts. For more information and for tickets, please click here.
