ATC: Doubt (21-25 Oct 2014)

doubt

Doubt: A Parable is the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play that mesmerizes the audience in a conflict of consciousness and convictions. Set in 1964, an era of great controversy and modernity in the Catholic Church, allegations flare tempers and question beliefs when the priest of St Nicholas Church and School is accused by two nuns of having an inappropriate relationship with the school’s only black student. Filled with intense drama and rich text, the play explores much more than the guilt or innocence of the accused but rather is a beautifully crafted exploration of the loneliness, the darkness and the pain caused by doubt.

This is the tragi-comic life of Don Juan, told as a continuous story through excerpts of the plays of 3 European dramatists:

The Stone Guest by Pushkin, a romance performed in Russian, with surtitles in English, directed by Christine Marchand

El burlador de Sevilla by Tirso de Molina, a drama performed in Spanish, with surtitles in English, directed by Diana Cardona

At the start, Don Juan commits a terrible crime, which comes back to haunt him at the end ; but not before he has seduced several women, forcefully expressed his shocking views on life, been chased into exile, shown courage in the face of danger, and generally driven his companion (called Sganarelle, Leporello, or Catalinon according to the play) to despair.

My Fair Lady by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe will be performed at the Auderghem Cultural Centre.

Music Director: Scott Rumery
Stage Director: Diana Morton-Hooper
Producer: Eileen Heenan

My Fair Lady tells the story of over-confident Professor Henry Higgins who with his friend, Colonel Pickering, follow through on an experiment to transform a cockney flower seller, Eliza Doolittle, into a lady who speaks well. Higgins and Pickering make great progress with the girl, taking her to the horse races at Ascot and a grand embassy ball, passing her off as a high born lady. Nevertheless, they still treat Eliza as a mere experiment and not as a human being. When Eliza runs away, Higgins realizes that she is more than just an experiment…
