Watermark Theatre’s Artistic Director Robert Tsonos, and General Manager Andrea Surich are proud to announce the 2019 Summer Season.
The season will include the classic farce Boeing Boeing by Marc Camoletti and the Pulitzer Prize winning play Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley. Our popular music series Classic Music Reignited returns for its 6th year, and the Watermark Play Reading Series will once again focus on new plays in development by PEI Playwrights.
Fasten your seat belt for a non-stop ride that will take you up, up and away! Boeing Boeing is a riotous farce about a successful architect named Bernard who is juggling three flight attendant fiancées – an American, an Italian and a German. Unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris, and Bernard’s apartment, at the same time. Bernard, his maid, and his visiting friend Robert must navigate the hilarious turbulence ahead. A non-stop comedy and a romp of international proportions.
“It’s deliciously, deliriously innocent. Pure pleasure and unconditional bliss!”
– The New York Times
Warm-hearted, irreverent, zany and brilliantly imaginative, Crimes of the Heart teems with humanity and humour as it examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the play brings you into the Mississippi household of the Magrath sisters. Babe has just shot her husband because she didn’t like his looks, Meg is back in town after a failed attempt in the music business, and everyone has forgotten poor Lenny’s 30th birthday. With warm-hearted laughs and touching family moments, the sisters forgive the past, face the present, and embrace the future in this contemporary American stage classic.
“From time to time a play comes along that restores one’s faith in our theatre…”
– NY Magazine.
For the 2nd year in a row, the Play Reading Series will showcase new work in development by PEI playwrights. A selection process will begin in the next few months to choose three new, unpublished, and unproduced plays, to be read by our company of actors during the month of August. A list of plays and playwrights will be released in the Spring of 2019.
Our Classic Music Reignited series returns, curated once again by Rob Oakie. As always, Island musical artists interpret classic composers in a way that you have never heard before. Stay tuned for our list of composers and Island musicians to be announced very soon.
