In her one-act play, If We Were Birds, playwright Erin Shields channels her views about war through the lens of the Greek myth of Philomela, who's raped by her warrior brother-in-law, Tereus, and their subsequent transformation into birds. Called "stunning" by The Globe and Mail, it's an unflinching, sometimes shocking commentary on modern war and its devastating aftermath, particularly for the women who become its victims. Winner of the 2011 Governor General's Award for drama, this beautiful and brutal work deftly blends horror, humor and human understanding. Learn More

Freshwater Theatre Company is proud to present The Book of Liz by acclaimed writer David Sedaris and his sister, actress and writer Amy Sedaris, starring Mame Pelletier and directed by Scot Moore at the new Nimbus Theatre in northeast Minneapolis!
Sister Elizabeth (Liz) Donderstock (of the Squeamish colony) is about to be squeezed out of her life’s work – making world class cheese balls that almost single-handedly fund the colony. Her midlife version of Rumspringa and her colony’s attempts to cope with her absence paint the backdrop for this smart comedy by the brilliant brother/sister duo of David and Amy Sedaris.
