Dinner With Friends
by Donald Margulies
October 22 - November 21, 2015
Winner of a 2000 Pulitzer Prize, this comedic drama is a funny yet bittersweet examination of the married lives of two intertwined couples. Ever since Karen and Gabe played matchmaker to their friends Beth and Tom, the couples have been inseparable, but when life throws them a curve ball, they begin to veer in opposite directions.
Amusing and richly layered, Dinner With Friends is about the path you choose, the millions you don’t and the detours that make it worth the ride.
by Matthew Barber
by Henrik Ibsen
April 21 - May 21, 2016
Ibsen’s powerful masterpiece, set in the late 1800s, remains profoundly relevant. The beautifully drawn characters are caught up in an unflinching story that deals with powerful themes such as promiscuity, sexually transmitted disease, incest and assisted death – all issues that transcend the years. The characters (a wealthy widow, a son returning home after many years, the family pastor, a servant and her carpenter father) find their lives entwined in unexpected ways. When family secrets are revealed, their futures are forever changed in ways they could not have imagined.
Ghosts will be Langley Players’ entry into the 2016 Fraser Valley Zone Festival.
Escape From Happiness
by George F. Walker
Run Dates: April 16 – May 16, 2015
Meet the Quinns, a dysfunctional working class family from the wrong side of town. Headed by a mother who maintains only the most tenuous connection to reality, the family consists of three daughters who display a variety of neuroses and a chronically ill old man who may or may not be their father. Add to the mix a couple of criminals of dubious intelligence and two police officers who are not the darlings of the force's PR department and we have all the ingredients for a wonderful dark comedy by award winning Canadian playwright, George F. Walker. Some Coarse Language. [Full Story]
Meet Hal and Cindy Savage, they are a couple of second-rate actors who long for a first-class life. They are tired of scratching out a meager living by pursuing their profession in second-rate theatres. The best thing they have is their love for each other. Cindy has an epiphany involving a self-help book after a bad night at yet another uninspiring dinner theatre. Before you know it, they re-invent themselves as all-knowing gurus of personal and professional development and are a runaway success. Mayhem begins as their lives unravel in this hilarious comedy.

Cocktails at Pam's
by Stewart Lemoine
Run Dates: October 16 – November 15, 2014
In 1965 being the perfect hostess is not easy. Just ask Pam. It's a fine art of pearls and gowns, repartee and knowing the difference between the maid and the cook. Pam believes she has everything under control, until the unthinkable happens. The cocktail party she is hosting descends into an evening of too many floral arrangements than suitable vases, a divorcee who doesn't want her canapé and guests who form charade teams and begin to have cheap, competitive fun -- well it's not really going as smoothly as Pam might wish.
