Six spellers, one dream… TO WIN the Putnam County Spelling Bee. Join the TCDS for a musical experience of 6 young children entered into a spelling bee, presided over by a neurotic vice principle and past winner. Moving in and out of reality, the audience is taken on a journey of hysterical self discovery of each participant.

Young nobleman Nikolai Stavrogin is universally loved and admired, but seems to have no passions or ambitions. His friend Pyotr, on the other hand, has hatched a plan of political upheaval, but needs a charismatic figurehead to lead his new movement, and believes Nikolai is the only one who could do. As the play goes on, the details of Pyotr’s revolutionary scheme become more sinister, Nikolai’s internal conflict becomes more violent, and soon everything and everyone is drawn toward a predictably disastrous outcome.

This riveting courtroom drama has been a celebrated TV drama, a classic movie, and most recently a hit Broadway revival. It tells the story of a 19-year-old boy on trial for the fatal stabbing of his father, whom 12 jurors must either set free, or sentence to the death penalty. While most of the jurors believe that the case is open and shut, and call for a guilty verdict, one man believes in the boy’s innocence. As this one juror opens the others’ eyes to the facts, each juror begins to reveal his or her own character and prejudices. Testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted, and tempers flare as the jurors begin to take sides, acting out tense and dynamic scenes that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats.

TCDS Presents: The Third Story

November 16th, 2014 | Posted by drama_julia in Shows | Uncategorized - (Comments Off on TCDS Presents: The Third Story)









                      Dates: Wednesday, November 19th – Saturday, November  22nd, at 8:00 pm

Location: George Ignatieff Theatre (15 Devonshire Place)

Admission: Student&Senior: $10 | Adult: $15                                                                    purchase tickets at: http://www.uofttix.ca/view.php?id=1132

The Third Story, written in 2008 by American playwright and actor Charles Busch, is equal parts surreal comedy, family drama, and film pastiche. In the 1940’s, in a quaint Nebraskan home, hardboiled and out of luck screenwriter Peg tries to convince her burnout son Drew to collaborate on one last screenplay. At the same time, the film in their imagination unfolds before us. Part film noir and part sci-fi schlock, the story eventually becomes a genre-confused romp with gangsters, zombies, clones, and the kitchen sink. All the while, we become privy to a third story; the Russian fairly tale that Peg would tell Drew as a child. As the other stories development, this tale of a shy princess and vulnerable witch becomes more and more familiar. Inspired by the story, and by their own lives, Peg and Drew try their best to finish the movie and to mend their fractured relationship.
