Places Please: May 2016

By Sara Elizabeth Taylor

CALGARY — In May, most theatre companies wind down their seasons and look ahead to when they start up again in September. So be sure to pack your theatre schedule before the summer lull! Here are a few plays that will be great notes on which to end the season.

The Light in the Piazza
Theatre Calgary
Max Bell Theatre at Arts Commons
April 26 – May 22

Looking for an uplifting musical just in time for spring? Be whisked away to Italy in 1953, where Clara Johnson has just met a handsome Tuscan man while on vacation in Florence with her mother Margaret. As a chance encounter blossoms into a love affair, Margaret wrestles with a secret that may destroy her daughter’s happiness.

Inherit the Wind
Simply Theatre
Victor Mitchell Theatre at Pumphouse Theatre
May 20-28 

Evolution vs. creationism: this was the conflict at the heart of the 1925 Scopes “Monkey” Trial, and the 1955 Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee play that fictionalizes it. Inherit the Wind continues to be revived for the stage and the screen over sixty years after its debut, proving the lasting resonance of its themes. When all the closing arguments are made, which side of the fence will you be on?

Flora and Fawna’s Field Trip
Lunchbox Theatre
Lunchbox Theatre
May 2-21

Best friends Flora and Fawna have founded The NaturElles, an all-inclusive, pro-diversity, girl-positive-but-still-gender-neutral group for girls like them. Join them as they make crafts, sing campfire songs, and discover the power, and the price, of being different. No mean girls allowed at this funny and heartwarming play! 

Love Song
Scorpio Theatre
Joyce Doolittle Theatre at Pumphouse Theatre
May 27 – June 4

Beane has never been entirely “normal;” his quiet nature and social anxiety have caused him to withdraw from everyone except his sister and her husband. But that’s all about to change when a mysterious new woman makes him reevaluate everything he’s ever known about himself, the world, and his place in it.
