It’s been a longer than usual wait but One Book One Community (OBOC) 2010 is here at last. If you haven’t read Joseph Boyden’s acclaimed novel Three Day Road, there’s still time to borrow a library copy and immerse yourself in this gripping tale of two Cree snipers in World War I.

The OBOC festivities will begin with ‘An Evening with Joseph Boyden’ on Friday, October 22nd at 7:00 pm in the Medicine Hat College Theater (refreshments and book signing to follow).

On Saturday, October 23rd, the action moves to the Esplanade with guest speakers, a panel discussion, dramatic readings from the novel by FUT in the Hat, and facilitated book discussions. Everyone is invited to this book club! All events are free with the exception of Saturday’s lunch (tickets now available).

The Children's Hour

The Children's Hour Poster

The Children’s Hour is a popular play written by Lillian Hellman in 1934 which was also made into a film (starting Audrey Hepburn & Shirley MacLaine) in 1961 launching it further into mainstream drama production. Without spoiling too much, but revealing just enough of the story, It is set in a girl’s boarding school run by two women, Karen Wright and Martha Dobie. An angry student, Mary Tilford, runs away from the school and to avoid being sent back she tells her grandmother a disturbing lie about the two headmistresses. The accusation proceeds to destroy the teacher’s careers, relationships and lives.

College Players and Fut in the Hat have chosen to adapt the play in their latest production. They are performing their piece on April 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th at 7:30PM. You can buy tickets online or at the Esplanade for $15. I probably wouldn’t recommend the play for younger children due to the topic matter. I’m glad I could help with the poster design on this project like Helen: A Spartan Love Story previously from the College Players. Unlike Helen though, this time the play is taking place at the Cultural Centre in the Black Box Theatre.
