The idiomatic voice of American playwright and actor Sam Shepard provides the electrical currents that ignite “Fool for Love,” Two former lovers meet in a run-down motel room in the Mojave Desert.  Eddie tries to convince May to rekindle their romance and move to a farm in Wyoming. May has moved on with her life but Eddie is still living in past.  The couple is caught in an emotional power struggle where the past haunts the present. Directed by Paul Groulx, The Artful Gauntlet Theatre Company. Featuring Jennifer Farrugia, Michael Sbrocchi, Rod Mctaggart, Dave Guthrie. You don’t want to miss Sam Shepard’s gritty classic about dangerous love. The play was a finalist for the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

King Lear
March 16-18 @ 8pm, March 19 @ 2pm, March 23-25 @ 8pm. Tickets $20.

The 9M Theatre Company presents its inaugural production: William Shakespeare’s King Lear. The production will showcase many of Hamilton’s talented Shakespearean actors, including actor/musician Jordan Abraham in the title role. King Lear is a man who gives away his Kingdom and, in doing so, loses himself and his mind. He is alone, fragile, caught in a storm, helpless to stop the tragic events unfolding around him. But just when he has lost everything, it seems he may have found his humanity. A play with ambitions of power, sword fighting, classic speeches, dark humour, disastrous romances, and familial love, it’s sure to have something for everyone. Whether you are a Shakespearean scholar, or looking for an exciting night of theatre and storytelling, here is King Lear!

ART ON THE WALLS:

David McLaughlin: Works From a Lifetime
David’s furniture and his glassworks will all be on display. One of the most memorable stops on the Art Bus tours comes to The Pearl. After forty years of arts and crafts, a Multicraft Gallery has been established for the marketing and disposal of the accumulated creative production of David McLaughlin of Hamilton Ontario. All of David’s work is utterly unique yet pulls us into a past and to shapes and colours that we know and grasp.  His works in glass are forceful, eye-catching, and unique.
