Emma is an intuitive teenager with a wild imagination, who has life all figured out until something goes wrong and she is forced to rely on the one person she never thought she would: her mother. A moving portrait of mothers, daughters, and the sacrifices they make. Winner of the 2009 Canadian National Playwrighting Award and starring award-winning actress, Elena Juatco, this powerful solo show was “A Must See” at the 2011 Vancouver Fringe Festival.
“One of the best examples of a solid performance and story … I see something in this production that is not bound to the stage. It is performed by someone who is bound for great things and, I think, deserves it. See it.”– Shane Birley, Plank Magazine.

“… Phone Whore is the kind of wondrous theatre work which forces you to face not just your own limits, but also what the limits are for text, performance and – let me say it – theatre itself.” (Charlebois Post)
“… by far the most intimate and insightful theatre experience you’re likely to have.” (roverarts.com)
“I haven’t been shaken by a piece of theatre like this for quite a while.” (audience member, Ottawa Fringe 2010)
“… a one-woman monologue, a running confessional, a series of anecdotes that add up to a powerful whole.” (Fast Forward Weekly, Calgary)
Written and performed by Cameryn Moore — Directed by Elizabeth DuPré
WWhen Tom Wingfield brings home a friend from work for a dinner one evening, his mother Amanda’s dreams of a suitor for her daughter Laura seem to be coming true. Through Tom’s memories and narration we see the tragedy in each Wingfield as they retreat into their own preferred reality; be it a glass collection, a Sunday afternoon in Blue Mountain with seventeen gentleman callers, or poems scrawled on the lids of shoe boxes. The Glass Menagerie was Tennessee Williams’ first great success and continues to be one of the most-performed and loved classics in theatre.

Over the past 20 years we have seen a growing realization that the current model for society and culture is unsustainable. We have been living beyond our means… Future of Hope is a documentary film following individuals that strive to change the world of consumerism, a system of credit and debt that the Icelandic economy was built upon for the past 10 years or more. Focusing on sustainable developments in organic farming, business, innovation, renewable energy and the environment – filled with positivity and emotion as we are taken on a story of struggle, determination and most importantly… hope. From the midnight sun, to dark winters lit only by the snow, from geysers to volcanoes, this movie truly explores the magnificent country of Iceland. Future of Hope takes you on a journey from the history to the present and even into the future of a new and sustainable Iceland.
