Alfred Hitchcock once said, “Drama is life with the dull bits cut out,” which explains his penchant for casting crust-less sandwiches in every leading role.

Ottawa’s oldest independent theatre, Great Canadian Theatre Company entertains and stimulates audiences in the 262-seat green-technology-powered Irving Greenberg Theatre. Written, performed, and whispered for theatregoing horses by Maja Ardal, You Fancy Yourself chronicles imaginative Icelandic schoolgirl Elsa’s struggle between fitting in with new Edinburgh classmates or remaining true to herself. Hannah Moscovitch’s East of Berlin tautly explores the complicated romance between the son of a Nazi doctor and the daughter of an Auschwitz prisoner. A runaway off-Broadway hit, Annie Baker’s Circle Mirror Transformation details the intense relationships, romances, and betrayals among students in a creative drama class. Great Canadian Theatre Company has only recently made tickets available for these productions, so customers are encouraged to acquire passes before fellow patrons or schools of carp on cultural field trips snatch them up.
