The Art of French Cooking

Thurs. – May 12

Emrys Jones Theatre

University of Saskatchewan

After years of being ogled, poked, and prodded, Blanche’s breasts Boobar and Boobell have had enough and they decide to leave her body… Literally. That’s the premise of Madeleine Blais-Dahlem’s new play The Art of French Cooking. 25th Street Theatre is presenting this Alice In Wonderland fantasy of self-discovery and it definitely pushes the boundaries of what we’re used to seeing on the stage. There is video projections, wild costumes and outrageous behaviour in a tale that will leave you examining what it means to be a woman. Tickets are $16 – $26.

Now – May 12

BackStage Stage

Remai Arts Centre

They say “It takes a village to raise a child” and now we can add it takes three theatre companies to make a ground-breaking adaptation of Shakespeare. La Troupe du Jour, Gordon Tootoosis Nīkānīwin Theatre, and Never Never Shakespeare have joined forces to create a production of Lear. The tale of King Lear about an aging king monarch forced to divide his kingdom up between his two daughters who flatter him and banish the third daughter who actually loves him. What makes this performance fresh is that it will be trilingual, and the actors bounce back and forth between English, French, and Cree…Don’t worry there’s subtitles. Tickets are $15 – $30.
