On its 2012 provincial tour of 70 communities, Tempting Providence retells the tale of the "Florence Nightingale of the North," Myra Grimsley. From a script by Robert Chafe and the expert direction of Jillian Keiley, the play follows Grimsley as she arrives in Newfoundland in 1921 to apply her nursing skills where they are most sorely needed. She crossed the unforgiving terrain of the Northern Peninsula by foot, horse, dogsled, and boat to perform these charitable medical feats, which included delivering babies and setting broken bones. Her work went on to earn honours from King George V and Queen Elizabeth II.

The St. John's Arts and Culture Centre opened its doors in 1967 with a controversial performance of Harold Horwood's Tomorrow Will Be Sunday, which riled the feathers of guests who held that the following day would in fact be Saturday. Denizens wishing to un-dry are welcome to enjoy the theatre bar's selection of beer and wines.
