Merlyn Productions 2014 Season
Now entering its sixth season, Merlyn Productions is once again pleased to present plays throughout the regular season and at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival in July!
Unfortunately, we may at any time face a change of regular venue, with the pending sale of the Ellice Theatre. For this reason, a full calendar was not posted in January, and play titles for both adult and family audiences are being added as the season continues.
General Admission for 2014 is still just $10, with many shows offering further attractive discounts for seniors, children, or groups of ten or more! (See: Tickets & Venue)
Coming Up Next...
585 Ellice Ave (at Sherbrook)
What could possibly go wrong at the bank's jubilee celebration, with the board of directors due to arrive?
Our master playwright takes Murphy's Law to the heights of comic disaster with a pompous, self-absorbed chairman named Shipuchin, one crotchety book-keeper who must finish massaging the numbers in time, and two meddling wives who unwittingly plunge "The Anniversary" into total slapstick chaos!
Don't miss this seldom-staged gem of Chekhovian one-act comedies (also published as "The Celebration", "The Festivities", and "A Jubilee")!
WITH OPENING ACT: "On the Harmful Effects of Tobacco"!
Part of the ChekhovFest 2014 Master Playwright Festival:
"That's a fact – as true as my name is Shipuchin!"
