This month is going to be jam-packed, and as always there are a few things I unfortunately won’t be able to make it to. But I want to make sure you know all about them so you can check them out!

King Dave – Centaur Theatre

Centaur Theatre is thrilled to announce the English-language premiere of the Théâtre Duceppe production of KING DAVE, written by acclaimed actor and playwright Alexandre Goyette and directed by Christian Fortin. Originally revived and adapted by Anglesh Major in 2021, and now translated to English by Patrick Emmanuel Abellard, KING DAVE is an emotionally complex solo work about a young Haitian-Quebecois man’s struggle to survive and thrive in Montreal. This intense, intricate tale stars talented bilingual artist Patrick Emmanuel Abellard.

KING DAVE recounts the story of Dave, a young, Haitian man in Montreal North who finds himself at odds with who he is at his core – battling between his private-school-educated self and a hard exterior. Confronting themes of male clichés, gun violence and revenge head-on, this emotionally charged, 90-minute work is riddled with intensity, yet balanced with gritty underlying humour.

Maggie – Theatre Aquarius

Meet Maggie, a Scottish single mother of three boys. Set between 1954 and 1976, MAGGIE tells the inspirational tale of a fiery school cleaner living in the mining town of Lanarkshire Scotland. After suffering an unthinkable loss, Maggie must rely on her strength, sense of humour and fiercely loyal group of friends to raise her boys and protect them from the harsh and ever-changing world around them. Based on a true story, MAGGIE features a soul-stirring score by award-winning recording artist Johnny Reid. A tribute to Johnny’s Granny and the people of an almost forgotten generation, this exciting new musical is a celebration of family, community and the joy and laughter that can be found, even in the darkest of times.
