"Sardonic and caustic, WHERE'S MY MONEY? vivisects the institution of marriage with Shanley's inimitable razor-sharp wit."
~ Dramatists Play Service

“..[a] semi-surrealist comedy about revenge, retribution, and the emotional and physical scars of modern relationships…Shanley's gift for acid-laced one-liners and emotionally tumescent exchanges is certainly potent... WHERE’S MY MONEY? suggests some intriguing ideas about the dangerous way men and women work out humiliations and frustrations from their past on their current partners…”
~ Variety
Theatre Plexus presents
by Charlotte Corbel-Coleman

June 4 - 13th at Havana Theatre
1212 Commercial Drive


SCRATCH is a moving coming-of-age tale about growing up, losing a loved one, and dealing with a raging case of head lice. Simultaneously.

Theatre Plexus is proud to be partnering on this project with the Living Through Loss Counselling Society of BC to raise funds for the Judy Capes Memorial Fund. All donations collected throughout the run will provide counselling and group therapy support to women at risk.

Written by Toronto playwright Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman, SCRATCH was nominated for the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play in 2009, was a prizewinner in the Herman Voaden Playwriting Competition, and was shortlisted for the 2010 Governor General's Award for English Language Drama.

Directed by Genevieve Fleming

Featuring Eileen Barrett, David Bloom, Tamara McCarthy, Caitlin McCarthy, Stephanie Izsak, and Markian Tarasiuk

Scratch was originally produced by Toronto's Factory Theatre in 2008 and was nominated for the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play in 2009.

Erase The Scare Factor: 5 Easy Tips to Reduce Stage Fright
If you're like most people, you experience some jitters around the idea of public speaking. These 5 steps won't make your nerves disappear completely, but they will make your life on stage A LOT easier.

1. Rehearse your links:
You don't need to know your speech word for word.
You don't need to spend hours rehearsing every day either. All you really need is to know which points to hit when. . . READ FULL ARTICLE
The Trick to Triumphing Over Tongue Twisters
Have you ever wondered what the point of tongue twisters was? Ever felt like they don't do very much? You probably learned tongue twisters as a child. When you're a kid the entire point of tongue twisters is to go faster than the kid next to you.

So what possible application can they have in real life?
Contrary to popular belief the point of tongue twisters is NOT to go a fast as you can. Not initially anyway. . . READ FULL ARTICLE
To Pause or Not to Pause: Speaking on Stage Like You Were Born For It
The applause fades away and you're standing at the podium looking into a sea of faces. You've got this. You glance one last time at your notes, fill your air with lungs and begin speaking. Your voice is strong and clear and you can feel the crowd listening intently to what you're saying. About a minute in you notice your mind is wandering, you see someone shift in their seat, you get distracted and look back at the notes you were certain you wouldn't need. 
By the time you get to the end you are tongue tied, your palms are sweating, your voice is wavering and all you can think of is how wonderful it will feel to get the hell off this podium and back into your seat.

So what went wrong?

You forgot to breathe. Obviously you were taking in oxygen, you didn't faint or fall over. But remember that lovely big breath you started off with? You didn't get another one of those. â€œBut I can't take a deep breath while I'm speaking!” I hear you protest. “That will take way too long! No-one wants to sit there and watch me breathe. I'll lose my audience.” The truth is exactly the opposite. . . READ FULL ARTICLE
