Disclaimer for The Commandment: While The Commandment deals with difficult subject matter including blasphemy, suicide, mental illness and homelessness, it is ultimately a comedic story of hope. It is unlike anything you would normally see on our stage and for that very reason, we encourage you to come and see it for yourself. Told by an incredibly passionate and engaging performer, the story brings you on a journey of overcoming profound challenges. You may want to bring a tissue – but you’re also in for a good laugh and a lasting feeling of hope before the house is up!

 

The Commandment

Friday July 19 - Orangeville Curling Club - 9pm (Ages 14+)  This event is open to ages 14+ and is also a licensed event
Saturday July 20 - Revival 1863: 5:30pm and 9:30pm (Ages 19+)


Thomas is using a public restroom. He is surprised when God starts talking to him from the next stall and tells him that he has been selected to deliver a new commandment to mankind. There’s one big problem, though: Thomas is an atheist. His belief structure shattered, Thomas embarks on a journey he never wanted as he tries to deal with his new life as reluctant prophet. Today, Thomas is crashing an open mic night to tell his story. The Commandment is a solo dramatic comedy about loss, love and the pitfalls of visiting the john in the presence of the almighty.

An Atlas, A Necktie & Other Concerns

“Life is a bitchload of contradictions."... "I won’t say you’re right.”... “Oh.” Four lifelong 30-something friends, each with very different takes on how to lead the best life, are locked in a strange escape room. There’s the sensible nine-to-fiver, the nonstop partier, the ambitious artiste and the peacekeeper with a potentially life-changing secret. Despite their one-of-a-kind love for one another, they can't seem to stop holding each other back. But if they can just 4-7-8 and put their longstanding beefs aside to solve the riddles, they might just break free. Written and directed by award-winning screenwriter Lauren Greenwood.

Reviews “The tightly-paced and engaging An Atlas, A Necktie & Other Concerns makes you think about the life choices we make and sometimes regret.” — NNNN review, NOW Magazine

“There’s a real tangible soul within the show and the entire cast really captures that, with each character feeling wellrounded both in writing and performance.” —Mooney on Theatre

“A delightful play with as many twists and turns as an escape room game—Greenwood’s writing and her cast shine.” — Deborah Smith, Artistic Director, Scripted Toronto
