Capitol Fine ArtsThe Birds and The Bees
The weekend may be the last-ever Turkey Days Festival, but for these four characters, that is just the beginning. The laugh-out-loud Canadian comedy is a roller coaster ride about family, love and sex.
Set in two adjoining bedrooms on a family farm, Mark Crawford’s riveting play tackles sex, love, science, family – and the artificial insemination of turkeys. What more could you ask for?

VACThe Loft Gallery Commission: Hissing Folly by Cole Swanson
Reception: Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020, 2 PM - 4 PM
For the 2020 iteration of the Loft Gallery Commission, Cole Swanson looks at Durham Region’s ecological landscape and poses critical questions around human relationships with invasive species, specifically phragmites (European common reed). Phragmites is a perennial grass that spreads quickly and out-competes native species for water and nutrients. This plant has been damaging ecosystems in Ontario for decades including areas of Clarington and the wider Durham Region. Working with the Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority (CLOCA), this collaborative project will result in the collection and removal of phragmites from the Thickson Woods Land Trust of Durham Region. The harvested phragmites will be used as materials for an immersive sculpture in the VAC using a centuries-long tradition of thatching. The resulting exhibition will consider phragmites as a historically valuable construction material with creative potential while educating the public on the risks posed by the plant to the ecosystems present in Clarington and the surrounding region.
Cole Swanson’s cross-disciplinary artistic practice spans over 15 years. Using sound, installation, painting, and sculpture his work explores interspecies relationships as they relate to complex coevolutionary systems. Swanson holds a BA in Studio Art from the University of Guelph and an MA in Art History from the University of Toronto. His work has been exhibited in exhibitions in Canada and international venues across four continents. He is a two-time national fellowship winner through the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute (2007, 2014) for his research on miniature paintings and Jaipur school fresco techniques in Rajasthan.

June 30 to July 19 ~ Capitol Theatre

Capitol Fine ArtsShirley Valentine
The hilarious, cheer-raising story of a housewife who escapes the ordinary for an adventure in Greece. Remember the movie? Shirley is an ordinary middle-class English housewife at home preparing a dinner of eggs and chips for her husband wondering what happened to the young woman she was. What happened to Shirley Valentine?
Shirley Valentine: “I think sex is like supermarkets, you know, overrated. Just a lot of pushing and shoving and you still come out with very little at the end.”
Come find out why – and other valuable life insights! – in our production of Willy Russell’s award-winning play about a middleclass English housewife who laments to her kitchen wall about her husband, her children and her past.
She decides to accept an invitation from a girlfriend to join her on holiday in Greece to search for romance – and rediscover her rather extraordinary self.
