Charlotte’s Web

Adapted from the book by E.B. White
By Joseph Robinette
Directed by Rebecca Northan

November 26 – December 29, 2024

One of the most popular productions in ATP’s history, E.B. White’s heartwarming classic about the unlikely friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a spider called Charlotte is returning to the Martha Cohen stage this holiday season.

This delightful adaptation follows Wilbur from his beginnings as a scrawny piglet who’s spared from becoming pork chops by a young girl named Fern. But as he grows and begins to cost his owners a fortune in feed, it will take help from all his new farmyard friends to save his life again, including the miraculous talents of a very special grey spider.

A beautiful, knowing play, Charlotte’s Web is a timeless tale that has enchanted audiences of all ages for generations. Through the endearing characters of Wilbur and Charlotte, this cherished story illustrates the enduring power of friendship and promises to capture the hearts of audiences again and again.

King James

By Rajiv Joseph
Directed by Haysam Kadri
In association with Theatre Aquarius

February 25 – March 16, 2025

“King” LeBron James’s reign in Cleveland brings promise, prosperity and renewal to a city in desperate need of all three. It also brings together two unlikely friends in a bond forged by fandom. Told over twelve years (from LeBron’s rookie season to an NBA Championship) King James is an intimate exploration of the place that sports occupy in our lives and relationships.

Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph’s clever and fast-paced comedy traces the arcs of two friends whose turbulent relationship is best navigated through their shared love of basketball. Both wonderfully funny and remarkably moving, King James dives into the heart of basketball fandom and highlights the profound connections that sports can cultivate.

Liars at a Funeral

By Sophia Fabiilli
Directed by Clare Preuss

In association with Western Canada Theatre

April 22 – May 11, 2025

Grandma Mavis stages her own funeral in order to reunite her estranged family… just in time for an ice storm to trap them all in a funeral home. But, little does she know, she’s not the only family member bending the truth. Can this eccentric clan of liars navigate the rocky road to reconciliation? Or will the next 24 hours be the final nail in this dysfunctional family’s coffin?

Featuring five actors playing nine characters, Liars at a Funeral is an uproarious comedy and a laugh-out-loud romp through the absurdities of family dynamics and the lengths we go to for love and connection.
