Mary Magdalene and Adventures in Sobriety
by Berni Stapleton
Directed by Andy Massingham
Featuring Nancy Kenny

Mary Magdalene has spent the past 2000 years in mourning. She’s wandered the earth, lost her jewels and maybe her marbles, and now sleeps on the streets in Toronto. She crashes (literally) into an AA meeting, where she finds the 12 steps to sobriety lead in divergent directions of spirituality, passion, and a really formidable mother-in-law.
Mary Magdalene and Adventures in Sobriety, the perfect after Easter treat.

by Darren O’Donnell
Directed by Alix Sideris
Featuring Christopher Bedford and Stewart Matthews

A young geneticist awakes one morning to find a cardboard box secured to his head. Unable to wrench it off, he attempts suicide, fails, and clones himself to avoid loneliness. The ensuing events lead both of them through a maze of romance, bitterness, soul searching and hilarious, vaudevillian escapades.
