Persephone Theatre is wrapping up its season with a comedy about relationships as much as it is about “the talk”. The Birds and the Bees follows Gail who’s just separated from her husband and returns to her childhood home for a bit of comfort from her mom. Her mother, however, is preoccupied with her failing honeybees and her blunt next door neighbour. This production has been getting rave reviews for its take on sex and intimacy. Tickets are $37 – $48.
A brand new play by Saskatoon’s own Clare Middleton is set to hit the stage. Special Delivery is a joyful family show filled with shadow puppetry and clowning. There is a big red circle on the calendar and we have to help our heroes figure out what special day they have forgotten and how we can celebrate someone so different from ourselves. This is the perfect outing for you and the kids during the Easter break. Tickets run $12 – $17 subsidized tickets are also available.
