a new play based on
Dashiell Hammett’s famous novel

 

Sam Spade is a womanizing, down-on-his-luck private eye, going nowhere fast — until a dangerous young woman walks into his life — and his partner is murdered.

Almost word-for-word from Hammett’s novel, it’s a trip down film noir alley — for the stage!

The Gravitational Pull at Studio Theatre Perth

 

In this play, with the quirky title “The Gravitational Pull of Bernice Trimble”, there are no murderers wielding weapons, no characters rushing in and out through multiple doors, and no one bursting into song every other line. There may be those of you reading this who say-“Thank goodness!” Not a velvet cape or feather boa in sight! The play is set in present day-it could take place in your own mother’s kitchen.

In this play you will hopefully come face to face with yourself as you relate to one of the adult siblings, or perhaps to their mother. If we have done our job well, you will feel right at home with an occasional family outburst. You may fit comfortably somewhere in the sibling birth order scenario. You will have ample opportunity to enjoy quick wit and gentle humor- and the characters will have to pause while you laugh after many of the lines.

In this play you will be transported from the present to the past and back again. Iris, Bernice’s middle child, tell us, “Sometimes, the only way out is to go in. Can’t make things up. Can’t wish. Can’t hope. One must tell it like it is. That’s what I’ll do.” Iris is your guide. The play challenges Iris, her sister Sarah and her brother Peter to accept each other’s differences and to honor the wishes of loved ones. There will be times when you will be feeling a tug at your heart strings. There will be moments of déjà vu. You will experience the celebration of a mother’s love for her children, and her children’s love for her. This play will take you to where all of us could be one day, and it will do so with love and grace.

The Gravitational Pull of Bernice Trimble premieres at the Studio Theatre on Thursday, January 17th for seven shows, Jan. 17, 18, 19, 25 and 26 at 7:30 pm and Jan. 20 and 27 at 2 pm.  Advance tickets are $24 and are available exclusively at Tickets Please in the Matheson House Museum Visitor Centre, 11 Gore St. E (613 485-6434; ticketsplease.ca). Tickets are $24 at the Studio Theatre box office on show days, available 1 hour before opening.  Attend opening night and save $5!   Rush tickets for students with ID are just $ 10 at the door.

Merry Christmas!

 

Many people in Canada and the United States celebrate Christmas Day on December 25. The day celebrates Jesus Christ’s birth.

People celebrate Christmas Day in many ways. It is often combined with customs from pre-Christian winter celebrations. Many people decorate their homes, visit family or friends and exchange gifts. In the days or even weeks before Christmas Day, many people decorate their homes and gardens with lights, Christmas trees and much more.

It is common to organize a special meal, often consisting of turkey and a lot of other festive foods, for family or friends and exchange gifts with them. Children, in particular, often receive a lot of gifts from their parents and other relatives and the mythical figure Santa Claus.

The original meaning of Christmas is a special church service, or mass, to celebrate the birth of Christ. The story of the Nativity, or the events surrounding the birth of Jesus, are particularly important in religious celebrations of Christmas. However, many traditions that are around today have their roots in pre-Christian winter festivals. These include the importance of candles and decorations made from evergreen bushes and tree, symbolizing everlasting light and life.

Popular modern customs of the holiday include gift giving, completing an Advent calendar or Advent wreath, Christmas music and caroling, lighting a Christingle, viewing a Nativity play, an exchange of Christmas cards, church services, a special meal, pulling Christmas crackers and the display of various Christmas decorations, including Christmas trees, Christmas lights, nativity scenes, garlands, wreaths, mistletoe, and holly. In addition, several closely related and often interchangeable figures, known as Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, and Christkind, are associated with bringing gifts to children during the Christmas season and have their own body of traditions and lore.
