Due to COVID-19 and the continued need to practice social distancing, Dundas Little Theatre has suspended the production of Verdict, originally planned to open on April 24th. Verdict will now be performed as the opening show of our upcoming 2020-2021 season.
Verdict by Agatha Christie (October-November 2020)
Twists and turns from the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie, are guaranteed in this ethical melodrama. A lesser known 1958 play that abandons the usual Christie formula to reveal the struggle between right and wrong. Christie herself considered this to be her finest effort written for the stage.
Doubt, A Parable by John Patrick Shanley (January-February 2021)
What happens to your faith when you start to doubt the intentions of those in positions of trust? Doubt is a gripping one-act play about a senior nun’s suspicion that a male priest is abusing a young boy. In 2008 it was turned into a film starring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman that garnered five Academy Award nominations.
An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley (April-May 2021)
A police inspector pays a surprise visit to the house of a prominent businessman and his family. He claims it’s his duty to investigate whether foul play is behind the suicide of a local young woman. But surely he has come to the wrong address? This classic mystery by the author of Laburnum Grove (DLT, 2017) has intrigued four generations of theatregoers and is now considered to be his greatest play.
