Shawnigan Players bring award winning script to life

Ever wondered what you want from life? So do Jack and Jill.

Ever wondered what you want from life? So do Jack and Jill.

The subjects of the play, Jack and Jill, the latest offering by the Shawnigan Players, will help you find your way through the maze.

With shows Nov. 25-28 and Dec. 3-5 at Queen Margaret’s School theatre, you’ve got lots of chances to find out, too.

Jack and Jill is a Theatre Critics Association Award winner by playwright Jane Martin that dares to ask the question: “What the heck do humans want?”

Marshmallow worlds don’t exist outside romantic songs so expect some sparring as you follow Jack and Jill through the years in an on-again, off-again, and warily-circling-each-other relationship of highs and lows and joys and frustrations.

It’ll strike a chord in you somewhere, too.

This is a fast-moving and hilariously heartbreaking opus starring Laura Faulkner (last seen in Romeo and Juliet) and Matt Williams (most recently on stage in The Real Thing), and they take full advantage of these flawed, funny, and very human characters.

Tickets are $15 each at Ten Old Books in Duncan, Mason’s in Shawnigan Lake, Butler Locksmithing in Lake Cowichan, or reserve them through email at Shawniganplayers@gmail.com
