Moss Park is a brutally honest play

Is it really necessary to always find meaning in pain and suffering?  For many people, finding lessons in sorrow is a necessity, because otherwise what is the point of experiencing anguish. But what if we can’t find any answers, let alone wisdom, from misery?  This question arose in my mind after watching Moss Park, which is running at the Great Canadian Theatre Company until February 8. This hard-hitting play tells the story of Tina and Bobby, two struggling people in their 20s who live in the inner city. Tina (played by Emma Slipp) lives with her mother and toddler Holly, but is on the verge of being evicted after falling... | Continue reading article

Earlier this week, Bassline Pub & Eatery offered a unique wine and food pairing session. It was the perfect way to spend an evening on a day dubbed as Blue Monday…January’s supposed most depressing day of the year. The idea to host these special evenings began last year in Ottawa’s quaint west end bar/restaurant/music venue, supported by owner A.J. Scarcella. Paul Corfe, one of the establishment’s bartenders and our culinary and wine expert for the night, has had an on-going love affair for all things food and wine, enhanced by... | Continue reading article

If you’re up for a night of powerful live theatre there is still time to catch Clybourne Park, the multi-award winning play written by Bruce Norris and brought to the Ottawa stage for the first time by director Chantal Plante. This tension fuelled, incisive drama will make you laugh, make you squirm and make you think. Even in the face of some pretty heavy subject matter, the show has plenty of humour, though it isn’t always the result of the lines as much as an uneasiness. Clyborne Park takes its... | Continue reading article

Set in a northern UK town Jim Cartwright’s Two features Michelle LeBlanc and Richard Gelinas in not only the roles of husband and wife publicans, but also as the dozen or so characters that pop in for a drink over the course of an evening down the pub. This inventive two-hander opens with the landlord and lady deftly serving imaginary customers whilst biting and snapping vicious asides – the play slowly reveals clues to this brewing storm. Laughingly they pull pints as she rolls her eyes and snarls at his... | Continue reading article
