The Melville Boys by Norm Foster

Produced by Black Sheep Theatre

One of the most beautifully-executed humour-meets-humanity style storytelling.  Two brothers arrive at a Lakeside cabin for a weekend of fishing but their plans change. The Melville Boys is a comedy of sibling rivalry and resentment, entwined with love, loyalty and compassion under difficult circumstances. Norm Foster writes a compelling tale about four ordinary people who rediscover themselves over two days of multiple beers, tears, tantrums and laughter.

Red Light, Green Light – Documentary Film @ Bancroft Village Playhouse
Aug 31 @ 7:00 pm

Poster-194x300

As nations around the globe attempt to fight sex trafficking, many consider legalizing prostitution.  Two filmmakers travel across ten countries to explore the issue,  attempting to answer the question: “How can we prevent sexual exploitation before it happens in the first place?”

Though governments are getting better at prosecuting traffickers and providing aftercare to victims, it is time we begin to ask the question of what lies at the root.
