THE DEATH OF STALIN
Jul 24 @ 7:30 pm

The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.

“The Death Of Stalin is superbly cast, and acted with icy and ruthless force by an A-list lineup. There are no weak links. Each has a plum role; each squeezes every gorgeous horrible drop.” ––– The Guardian

ON CHESIL BEACH
Aug 7 @ 7:30 pm

A KING’S FILM SOCIETY PRESENTATION

Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, the drama centers on a young couple of drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962. Following the pair through their idyllic courtship, the film explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night. The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Adrian Scarborough, Emily Watson, and Samuel West.

From Bleecker Street Films: Ian McEwan’s Novels to Film

After writing his novel On Chesil Beach in 2007, Ian McEwan did something he rarely does—he wrote the screenplay. Even before the novel hit bookstores, film companies were interested in turning this story into a movie. Traditionally McEwan has left the job of adaptation to others, joking, “In the time it takes me to write two screenplays that do not get made, I could have written two new novels.” But the elegant way the book tells how an eventful wedding night in 1962 utterly changed the destinies of a newly married couple seem to translate perfectly into a screenplay. Director Dominic Cooke was so impressed with McEwan’s adaptation that there was very little to do before filming. “He is so specific about character and place,” Cooke explained. Saoirse Ronan, who stars alongside Billy Howle, was thrilled to reunite with McEwan after having helped bring his novel Atonement to the screen a decade before. “Ian is someone who writes women incredibly skillfully,” notes Ronan. In the last forty years, Ian McEwan has written some of Britain’s most acclaimed novels. Both he and his work have won nearly every literary award, including the Man Booker Prize.

Shelley Marshall’s HOLD MOMMY’S CIGARETTE
Aug 11 @ 7:30 pm

This is a stunning story of an unfiltered life, written and performed by Shelley Marshall, directed by Linda Kash. It took 10 years for Hamilton-born Marshall to create the work, the worthwhile result of resilience, recovery, and reflection while exploring many the genres of performance; clown, stand-up, improv, buffoon, and play.

For the past five years, old Mommy’s Cigarette has been a sell-out success in theatres in Toronto and surrounding cities, receiving Gold in the category of “Best Theatre Production” in 2013, “Best New Discovery” by Now Magazine, and nominated “Best Female Stand Up” in Canada by the Canadian Comedy Awards. Marshall has hosted the popular, televised Hamilton Music Awards for the past four years. In light of the national acclaim she has garnered, what makes Hold Mommy’s Cigarette such a success to Shelley personally is the attention it has contributed in raising mental health awareness. “I knew creating works of art that expressed my experience, my truth, and my understanding, were what would bring a joyful purpose to my life. I feel I not only have an opportunity, but an obligation, to convey a message that can help people heal.” Quickly blazing an uncharted trail, this comedic icon won’t be slowing down any time soon.

Marshall, who has recently settled in Bear River, Nova Scotia, invites you to come to her show with an open mind and promises you’ll leave with a full heart.
