Abby Theatre Fest: Stage to Screen Edition Weekend #1


Abby Theatre Fest: Stage to Screen Edition is an online version of our annual one-act play festival, but with a twist. This year, we invited actors, writers, and film-makers from across Canada and Western USA to submit videoed performances of their original work, whether it be a devised short film or a performance reading of their short stories or poems. Films were streamed in two groups over two weekends in October with fun, interactive online engagement. It's the same heart, soul and mind theatre you expect from us, just something a bit edgy, something a bit different. A portion of ticket sales go to support the creators!

Everyman & The Second Shepherd's Play


A double feature: two plays for the price of one! Everyman, a representation of all human kind, is suddenly called to give a reckoning before God for the life he has lived. Inviting mystical characters such as Fellowship, Good Deeds and Knowledge to accompany him on his pilgrimage, Everyman soon realizes that in the end, when he stands before God, all he has left to offer is his good deeds. This is a rare reading of this 15th century masterpiece, considered by many to be the greatest morality plays of all time.

In The Second Shepherd's Play, adapted by Ian Borden, a group of shepherds attempt to rescue a missing sheep from the clutches of a rapscallion sheep-stealing couple who will go to great lengths to conceal their thievery. Little to do the Shepherds know that a holy announcement from the Heavenly hosts is forthcoming that will change their lives for ever.


Macbeth 

by William Shakespeare


Macbeth, a Scottish general, is enticed by a prophesy from three witches, who predict he will become the King of Scotland. Spurred on by his ambitions and his determined wife, Macbeth murders his way to a usurped throne. Wracked by guilt and paranoia, Macbeth’s reign descends in to bloody tyranny until forces led by Thane of Fife restore peace and light in the kingdom. A tragedy first performed in the early 1600’s, the play explores the destructive nature of political ambition and misaligned allegiances. This dramatic reading was presented as part of Pageant Wagon Theatre in November, 2020.


Charles Dickens'

A Christmas Carol

Adapted by Adriel Brandt


It’s a frigid Christmas Eve. With a heart as cold as the freezing London winter, Ebenezer Scrooge is paid a visit from the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come, and is forced to finally confront how his actions have affected others and where they are leading him. This is a recording of our Zoom live-streamed performance held December 19, 2020 on Zoom.

Please note this recording contains one minor screen share issue at the 3:50 mark that is resolved at the 4:25 mark.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery's

The Little Prince

Adapted by Gabe Kirkley


An aviator crash lands in the desert and meets a strange little man known as The Little Prince. He tells the story of a thrilling cosmic adventure, visiting planets across the universe and meeting oddly familiar characters. Along the way, he learns important lessons about loneliness, friendship, love and loss. A timely virtual theatre experience that will lift your spirits and ignite your imagination.

A New Normal

An Original Play by Shelley Picard


Maggie is fiercely independent but now needs someone to rely on as financial strains threaten her living.  Helen is challenged by her inability to function on her own in a modern world and is seeking her own independence. Thrown together by diametrically different circumstances, they scramble through the adjustments of day-to-day life and discover something to be treasured. This heart-warming, funny and ultimately moving new play explores perception and judgement and how what the world sees is not necessarily the reality being lived.


Audience Advisory: This play contains mature content including discussion about a past sexual assault and a description of an instance of bullying.
