Hope is the thing with feathers – That perches in the soul – And sings the tune without
the words – And never stops – At all.
–Emily Dickinson
What are you willing to risk to save a life? A doctor embarks on a ground breaking
medical experiment despite the objections of his colleagues. Meanwhile, a couple is torn
about whether the doctor has what it takes to save their baby. This is a play about life in
the waiting room of a major children’s hospital. This is a play about medical compassion
and risk. This is a play about families who find the will to keep going. This is a play
about the needs of the heart and the extremes of medicine. This is a play about breaking
the rules. This is a play about hope.


A play about the cruelty of love - a story about how we create stories - and about the
heartbreakingly wide expanse between the life we live and the life we long for.
Chekhov's The Seagull was a spectacular failure when it premiered in 1895, but has
survived to become one of the masterpieces of the modern era. Starring Yanna McIntosh,
Eric Peterson, Tom Rooney and Bahia Watson, Crow's Theatres award-winning director
Chris Abraham will bring to life this astonishingly contemporary play about a family at
the end of era, facing an uncertain future. Following 2013's Someone Else and Winners
and Losers, Crow's Theatre presents another powerful production at the Berkeley Street
Theatre.

Karla Zuckowski, 24. Last seen before she left for the grocery store in blue jeans, a green parka and her red rubber rain boots. The police and papers ignore the disappearance, leaving her loved ones to discover the truth. Suspicions turn to her lover Vlado, born into terror and war. He is the kind that finds and he must find Karla. A search for Karla becomes a search for the self in this poetic thriller and modern day epic cloaked in the mystery of Europe’s underworld. The first-ever international playwright in-residence at Tarragon, German playwright Maria Milisavljevic makes her Canadian debut with Abyss, which was first presented at the Deutsches Theater Berlin (as Brandung) and won the prestigious 2013 Kleist Promotional Award for Young Dramatists. 6.
