This season will showcase a returning favourite as well as a world premiere: Ian McLachlan and Robert Winslow’s beloved play Crow Hill: The Telephone Play, directed by Deb Williams; and the highly anticipated world premiere of Who Killed Snow White?, written by renowned playwright Judith Thompson and directed by 4th Line Theatre’s Managing Artistic Director Kim Blackwell.
Both plays feature talented casts including some of Canada’s best actors, alongside local favourites.
Crow Hill debuted in 1997 and it remains a favourite for anybody who saw it. It will star Robert Winslow as Doc Logie, in one of his all-time favourite characters. Winslow will be joined onstage by Mark Kreder, Sarah McNeilly, Natasha Ramondino and Courtenay Stevens in their 4th Line debuts. The ensemble cast will feature 20 actors playing over 35 characters including: Lindsay Barr, Liam Davidson, Kait Dueck, Matt Gilbert, Lorna Green, Mark Hiscox and Kelsey Powell.
With Who Killed Snow White? is based on Judith Thompson’s play and has been in development since 2011. Blackwell says the theatre group is proud to premiere this beautiful, challenging and fascinating work by one of Canada’s finest playwrights this summer. The play will feature a cast of 26 professional and volunteer actors. Cynthia Ashperger will be returning to 4th Line after appearing in The Berlin Blues in 2011, and will be joined onstage by The Hero of Hunter Street playwright, Maja Ardal, who will be making her 4th Line acting debut. Christian Lloyd will also be making his 4th Line debut alongside Cassandra Guthrie, playwright Judith Thompson’s daughter Grace Thompson and Steven Vlahos. Angel Haines, Mark Hiscox, Tom Keat, Andrei Preda and Saskia Tomkins will all be returning to 4th Line in the show. KG
