Here Be Dragons

October 2021

In October 2021, we returned to the stage to present Anna MacAlpine’s Here Be Dragons. Sixteen years after her kingdom was invaded by three evil witches, a princess seeks out an enchanted sword that may help her save her people. Accompanied by a foppish bard and a stubborn mercenary, Princess Thea faces many trials and obstacles on her quest to defeat the wicked sisters Morgana, Morgaine, and Morgause. The path will not be easy, and she must travel to the most dangerous reaches of the kingdom – areas marked on her map with a warning: Here Be Dragons.

How The Fables Have Turned

June 2021 (Digital)

Life can be a real witch, especially when your story was written by a man. Presented for the digital component of the 2021 St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival, How The Fables Have Turned is a digital musical experience. Featuring four original songs written by local composers and songwriters and filmed using a variety of methods to ensure cast safety, this fabulous gay-ble follows four fairytale women who finally get to tell their own stories through song. No witches were harmed in the making of this musical experience, but the patriarchy sure will be!

Presented for Festival de la Bete Noire 2021, Only Footprints is a horror-filled, interactive online game. As you’re chased by a killer, YOU have the power to choose how you will escape. You will need to keep your wits and senses sharp as you solve puzzles, make hard choices, and ultimately fight for your safety and your life. Will your choices lead you to safety, or lead you to your demise?

In the Stars

June 2020 (Digital)

Originally conceptualized as a live, interactive performance for the St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival, In the Stars was reimagined as an online, interactive game for Fringe’s “This is not a Fringe Festival.”

Taking on the role of private detectives, audience members solved puzzles, pieced together clues, and interacted with both their environment and a cast of characters to solve a mystery. The initial goal of the piece was to create a video-game-like experience in a live performance setting, so we decided to develop it digitally until it is ready to launch in person next year! Using Twine, we created an interactive platform that re-created the physical space that we were going to create in the live performance.

Heroes: Behind the Tights

March 2020 (Cancelled due to COVID-19)

Due to be presented in March 2020, Heroes: Behind the Tights, consisted of two one-act plays; My Children by Lucas Amato, and The Butler by William P. Erskine. We were so excited to present these two plays by emerging Canadian playwrights, which both looked at the superhero mythos from very different perspectives.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the implementation of lockdown measures in Quebec at the beginning of March 2020, we were unable to present this project to the public. Despite this, we are so grateful for the opportunity to work with our amazing cast and crew, as well as with emerging Canadian playwrights.

Home Theatre Productions’ inaugural show, [title of show] (music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen and book by Hunter Bell) took place at Mainline Theatre September 12-15, 2019. As our first show as a new company, [title of show] allowed us to explore producing live theatre on our own, using only 4 chairs and a keyboard! With two out of four performances sold out, and positive audience feedback, it was a great start to Home Theatre’s journey.
