The Livery 2023/24 Season - Fall Offerings
Written by David Storey
Directed by Garnet Colborne
On a bare terrace stroll two old gentlemen, who greet each other courteously. They are soon joined by two women, known socially to the two men, and, later, by a young man. They discuss topics: the past, the weather, old friends, old loves, and the war. Are they perhaps in a small private hotel? In actuality, they are all patients in a psychiatric facility. Yet, on this day in their lives, there is much humour and good grace. By the time the day is over and the shadows fall, we as an audience are moved to compassion, sympathy, and respect for these extraordinarily ordinary people. The play won the New York Drama Critics Award as Best Play of the Year (1970). It was also included in the list of the 100 Best Plays of the 20th Century

CHRISTMAS IN THE HIGHLANDS
Written by Warren Robinson
Directed by Eleanor Robinson
The Robinsons are well-known throughout the area as a husband and wife team who can tell a story. They have been collaborating together for years and have a knack of putting together stellar casts, impressive sets and the occasional original score. Past hits have included How High the Moon and the series of plays telling the history of Kingsbridge, Kingsbridge the Musical Parts One through Five.
Christmas in the Highlands is another ‘’Cosy Mystery” written by Warren Robinson. It features period carols, costumes, and kilts to offer a visual treat and a warm Christmas feeling.
It is set in Inverness in the 1890s. It includes a Highland Ball, comical high jinks and a mystery to be solved.
We can’t think of a better way to kick off the holiday season, than a local cast of players taking a celebrated local playwright’s story to the beautiful stage at The Livery. Tickets won’t last long, so get yours soon. November 30, December 1 - 3 and 8 – 10, 2023
