Sand­box Se­ries raises cur­tains on 2019

Regina Leader-Post - - YOU - ASH­LEY MARTIN

The Globe Theatre has un­veiled a three-show lineup for its 2019 Sand­box Se­ries.

Ap­ple Time by the Deaf Crows Col­lec­tive kicks things off in Fe­bru­ary.

Cre­ated by stu­dents of the Regina Pub­lic School Divi­sion’s deaf and hard of hear­ing pro­gram, the show pre­miered in June at The Arte­sian.

It uses mime, cir­cus arts, pup­petry, Amer­i­can Sign Lan­guage and sub­ti­tles to tell the stu­dents’ sto­ries through char­ac­ters in­clud­ing a clown and a moose.

Ap­ple Time runs Feb. 7-10 at the Globe Theatre.

Jor­dan Tan­nahill’s play Concord Flo­ral is the sec­ond Sand­box Se­ries show.

It’s pre­sented by Globe Theatre School and fea­tures the Young Com­pany, an in­vi­ta­tion-based en­sem­ble of ac­tors be­tween 17 and 20 years old.

De­scribed as a “su­per­nat­u­ral thriller of sub­ur­ban teenagers flee­ing a mys­te­ri­ous plague,” the play tells the story of Rosa Mundi, Nearly Wild and their friends, who fre­quent an aban­doned green­house, Concord Flo­ral. Then they stum­ble upon a dark se­cret.

Tan­nahill is a Gover­nor Gen­eral’s Award-win­ning Cana­dian play­wright.

The show runs from March 28 to April 6 at the Globe Theatre.

Kenneth T. Wil­liams’ play In Care fin­ishes the sea­son.

It’s about a mother’s quest to get her chil­dren out of foster care. Jan­ice Fisher was a teenage pros­ti­tute with ad­dic­tions is­sues. She was 15 when so­cial ser­vices ap­pre­hended her first daugh­ter. Now, hav­ing turned her life around, a false ac­cu­sa­tion lands Jan­ice’s three daugh­ters in foster care. The more she strug­gles to get out of the sys­tem, the more stuck she be­comes.

Wil­liams is from the Ge­orge Gor­don First Na­tion, about 110 kilo­me­tres north of Regina.

Pre­sented by Globe Theatre School, a lim­ited num­ber of pay­what-you-can tick­ets will be re­served for this show.

In Care takes place at The Arte­sian from June 13 to 22.

Sand­box Se­ries subscriptions are avail­able for $45 plus taxes and fees. Sin­gle tick­ets are $21. Learn more at glo­bethe­atre­live. com.
