The boss is an aging legend, cantankerous but charismatic. His new assistant is young and vulnerable, but full of grit. When the two interact at work, the fun begins. Based on the playwright's own real-life experience as a young secretary from the Canadian prairie who finds herself working for the aging Francis Biddle, the primary judge on the postwar Nuremberg Trials, Trying is a hopeful and humorous tale of friendship amid life's most inevitable adventure: growing old. Upon its off-Broadway debut, The New York Times praised the show as "comic and touching." Now International City Theatre stages a fresh production of this bracing, brilliant play by Joanna McClelland Glass (Canadian Gothic, Yesteryear). Learn More

Some Like It Hot meets Twelfth Night in Ken Ludwig’s delightful madcap comedy,Leading Ladies_.
_ In Leading Ladies, slapstick goofiness and scrambled Shakespeare make for a hilarious romp about mistaken identities, human foibles and loves lost and found. Role reversal gets a new twist and a side of laughs when two down-on-their-luck Shakespearean actors dress as women in a plot to con a dying woman out of her millions. Interweaving inside jokes about the stage, thespians and the Bard himself, Ludwig turns the play within a play model into a farcical statement about art and appearances.
David Engel and John J. Joseph star as Leo and Jack, with Jamison Lingle as Meg; Lyndsi LaRose as Audrey; Katherine McKalip as Florence; Daniel Lench as Duncan; Corey Craig as Butch; and Don Oscar Smith as Doc.
Please note, there is a $10 fee to park at the venue.
