Tough

Being nineteen can be tough for a girl if she’s poor, uneducated, and in love with someone like Bobby. Teenage boyhood can also be tough if the guy is sensitive and confused and looking down the road to the rest of his life. Bobby doesn’t know what he’s walking into when he agrees to meet his girlfriend Tina and her best friend Jill, at the neighborhood park. Both have something TOUGH! to tell the other, and neither is equipped to handle their situation. On top of this, we have Tina’s best friend Jill and her fiery temper tossed into the mix. This dark comedy explores the nature of responsibility, communication, and how each can change radically from different gendered perspectives.

The North Peace Cultural Centre wants you to feel safe attending the theatre in this challenging time. Audience size will be limited to 50 people per performance. Please maintain 2m distance between yourself and other parties. Get Tickets Here

Stage North: Almost Maine

March 6, 7, 13, 14 – Almost, Maine

A woman carries her heart, broken into nineteen pieces, in a small paper bag. A man shrinks to half his former size, after losing hope in love. A couple keep the love they have given each other in large red bags, or compress the mass into the size of a diamond. These playful and surreal experiences are commonplace in the world of John Cariani’s Almost, Maine, where on one deeply cold and magical Midwinter Night, the citizens of Almost — not organized enough for a town, too populated for a wilderness — experience the life-altering power of the human heart. Relationships end, begin, or change beyond recognition, as strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers.

Propelled by the mystical energy of the aurora borealis and populated with characters who are humorous, plain-spoken, thoughtful, and sincere, Almost, Maine is a series of loosely connected tales about love, each with a compelling couple at its center, each with its own touch of sorcery

This will be performed as a dinner theatre as a fundraiser for the Fort St. John Rotary Club.  Tickets will be available soon.
