Performances at Langham Court Theatre, 805 Langham Court, Victoria.

Lessons is a thoughtful, compelling play about finding faith and love in a sometimes violent and alienating world. Lessons is performed by Christine Upright (last seen as Edna in Bēma’s Prisoner of Second Avenue) and Alf Small (Horowitz and Mrs Washington). Zelda Dean directs. When Ben finally decides to have a Bar Mitzvah (at his age!) he hires Ruth, a Rabbi who’s lost her faith, to tutor him. The two characters forge a friendship as they each search for healing and forgiveness while wrestling with their own deep-rooted problems. Lessons is a touching, funny and poignant drama that asks the question: Can we find healing and forgiveness when our beliefs are questioned?

“Small and Upright are magnificent as Ben and Ruth, with a naturalistic acting style that compels careful attention—not a moment of this two hour play is wasted.” – Janis La Couvee

Proceeds of these performances will be donated to The War Amps.
TICKETS: $23 – available online at www.langhamtheatre.ca or by phone at Langham Court box office 250-384-2142.
