Farragut North is the first show of Live Five’s 2012-2013 season. The play, which was adapted to the screen last year in George Clooney’s The Ides of March, is an engaging, riveting narrative, focusing on the back room dealings of political campaigns.

East of Berlin is a sharp, biting and brutal play, laced with wicked humour and profound philosophical resonances. It is a play about uncertainty that asks hard questions of its viewer, but also provides a comfort in its familiar search for meaning. It will not depress you as other Holocaust-themed plays might, but it will leave you shaken, somewhat off-balance and generally richer for the experience.
Vern Thiessen’s Vimy is the first show of the season for the local non-profit theatre organization Live Five, telling the story of a nurse tending four wounded Canadian soldiers recovering at a field hospital during the First World War. It is directed by Natasha Martina and stars many current and former U of S drama students.
While the play is built around the themes, symbols and actions of the First World War, it is not a play explicitly about war.
