The Rules of Playing Risk by Kristen Da Silva
Unsociable retiree Garfield Lyons is eight weeks into recovery from an accident, aided by nurse Maggie who makes house calls at his secluded Parry Sound home, when a letter arrives informing him that his estranged fourteen-year-old grandson Brandon is in need of a place to stay. Prevailed upon by the ever-outspoken Maggie, Garfield agrees to house the boy, setting grandfather and grandson on an obstacle course of generational divides that cannot be resolved without both of them taking a “Risk”.

The Third Life of Eddie Mann by John Spurway
Eddie's story is about life, death, baseball, watches and Oreo cookies. As a teacher, he loved his first life. After 31 years, he retired and became a financial adviser. That was his second and current life, one which he hates. Freshly fired by his only client, we find Eddie contemplating what life will look like next, when he is interrupted by a quirky visitor.
And so starts The Third Life of Eddie Mann.

Sunshine Sketches by Jim Betts
Peter Pupkin and Zena Pepperleigh are in love! But will love alone make them truly happy? Can it endure despite the demands of two blustery fathers? Will it somehow survive the peril of the infamous sinking of The Mariposa Belle? Is there in fact something magical in the atmosphere of small town Canada that will ensure they do indeed live happily ever after? Sunshine Sketches answers all these musical questions in – yes - a new musical by Jim Betts based the Stephen Leacock classic.
