Crow’s Theatre Remounts “The Wedding Party” and “True Crime”
To kick-start the New Year, Crow’s Theatre brings their smash 2016/2017 season-opener The Wedding Party, back to Streetcar Crowsnest for another uproarious run this January 2018. True Crime is also coming back later in January as well.
The first play to open the doors of Streetcar Crowsnest in January 2016. The Wedding Party, which garnered rave reviews and sold out houses in its debut engagement, will be on stage January 2 to 20. The original cast returns for the hotly anticipated remount with one exception, acclaimed stage actress Jane Spidell will take on the roles originated by Kristen Thomson.
From the award-winning creators of the beloved play I, Claudia – Kristen Thomson and Crow’s Theatre Artistic Director Chris Abraham- The Wedding Party is a comedy about two families, a wedding, mistaken identities, and love, love, love! Take a seat ringside on the big day while an astonishing cast of the country’s leading actors hit the dance floor, drink too much and try to get along, again.
A play about a wedding in which the newly wedded couple never appear, The Wedding Party takes an honest and humorous look at the wedding ritual and the pitfalls inherent when two unique families come together, forever. Sharply observant, acidly funny and raw, The Wedding Party takes the veneer off “the most important day of your life” in the way only Kristen Thomson can.
Crow’s Theatre also brings back True Crime in January, Stars’ frontman Torquil Campbell’s critically-acclaimed mind-twisting meditation on his obsession with Clark Rockefeller, storytelling, truth and lies. Since premiering at Streetcar Crowsnest in April, True Crime has toured to Stratford and Prince Edward County, and has 2018 dates in Calgary (Vertigo Theatre, January 23 to 27) and Victoria (Belfry Theatre, March 8 to 10).
The Wedding Party runs January 2 to 20 and True Crime runs January 16 to 20 at Streetcar Crowsnest (345 Carlaw Avenue). Tickets are currently available for Crow’s 2017-2018 season with regular tickets starting at $25. Get online information and make ticket purchases at crowstheatre.com.
