T|he 2009 Belwood Summer Season

It's finally here too!

While the 2009 season at the Ennotville Library is all about history, the 2009 season at the Belwood Hall is all about, well, dresses. Yes, dresses.

The first play of the season is entitled 5 Women Wearing the Same Dress. This comedy by Alan Ball runs July 16th, 17th and 18th, and features five young women at the only time and place in their adult lives where they would ever be caught dead wearing exactly the same outfits. Any guesses as to when and where that might be?

Next up is a plays called Our Girls, a cross-dressing Farce by Conrad Seiler, running July 30th, 31st, August 1st. This play concerns is all about family ties, family fortunes and "keeping up appearances," even to the extent of dressing up daughters as sons to fool wealthy relatives, only to have things go hilariously awry.

The final play in our season it this year's world premiere, and it is called Dress Code, and it runs August 20th, 21st and 22nd. This is a light-hearted play with a serious message, about body image, tolerating differences and learning to see what's on the inside.

I don't know exactly how I came up with the idea of a season about clothing and dresses, but I'm glad I did. Put on your favourite summer dress (be you man or woman) and come to Belwood this July and August for some top-notch summer theatre!

All shows, dates and venues subject to change.
