BONNIE AND CLYDE: THE TWO PERSON, SIX-GUN MUSICAL

BONNIE AND CLYDE: THE TWO PERSON, SIX-GUN MUSICAL

Depression-era bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde were considered ruthless murders, but Bonnie and Clyde – The Two Person, Six Gun Musical explores the true events of their highly sensationalized lives from the angle of their infamous love affair.  With haunting melodies and bold theatricality, this pure fun, rip-roarin’ musical takes you on a wild ride of romance, suspense and old-fashioned shout-outs, highlighting the true events that led up to this notorious couples’ nation-wide crime spree from 1932 until 1934.

NLT unveils our new season
for 2017-2018

Northern Light Theatre unveils its forty-second anniversary season of producing challenging, exciting, dynamic and controversial works of live performance that showcase what NLT does best: creating theatre with language rich texts that are dark, poetic, funny and which reflect a complex world and lead us to question our hierarchy of values.

Season 2017-2018: The Virgin, The Whore and Something In Between

The Madonna-whore complex, first identified by Sigmund Freud, is said to develop in men who see women as either saintly Madonnas or debased prostitutes.  In sexual politics the view of women as either Madonnas or whores limits women's sexual expression, offering two mutually exclusive ways to construct a sexual identity. While our season title is tongue-in-cheek, it does offer a clever umbrella under which to gather three plays that explore women’s identities in regards to sexuality, religion and the Christian/ Catholic morality of the societies in which they have been raised.

The Testament of MaryTHE TESTAMENT OF MARY by Colm Tóibín (Canadian Premiere)
October 26-November 4, 2017 |  PCL Studio, ATB Financial Arts Barns

Featuring Holly Turner | Directed by Trevor Schmidt

The mother of Jesus tells her story of her son’s crucifixion and questions his death and divinity. The Testament of Mary is a portrait of a very human woman – a mother – who is trying to make sense of and come to terms with the tragic death of her son.


The Testament of MaryDO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME / FAITES CECI EN MÉMOIRE DE MOI By Cat Walsh with French Translation by Manon Beaudoin (World Premiere of a New Work)
Co-production with L’UniThéâtreMarch 13- 25, 2018 | L’UniThéâtre in La Cité Francophone
Featuring Brian Dooley and Nicole St. Martin | Directed by Trevor Schmidt           

Montreal, 1963- and the world is on the precipice of major change in the fields of science, civil rights and women’s liberation.  Twelve-year-old Genevieve- the only girl in her large religious family- wants nothing more than to be an altar server at her church. But Father Paul tells her that girls are strictly not allowed and Genevieve prays to God to change his mind about having girls serve.  So when star altar boy Martin disappears on his way home from school, Genevieve wonders if her prayer has been answered- in the most terrible way. 


The Testament of MarySLUT by Brenda McFarlane (Alberta Premiere)
April 5 – 14, 2018 | PCL Studio, ATB Financial Arts Barns    
Featuring Michelle Todd | Directed by Trevor Schmidt

Matilda is a woman who gives of herself freely.  So freely in fact, that the senior citizens from the complex next door have her arrested for running a brothel.  During an endless night of booking at the police station, Matilda runs a gamut of emotions: joy, regret, remorse, anger, despair and love.  Brenda McFarlane’s witty and fast paced play pries apart social stereotypes and stigmas in an insightful, light-hearted and comic examination of love and sex.
