ITR Theatre Company presents the world première of Shorthanded - A Ladies Game

It’s the seventh game of the finals. Twenty years after a crushing defeat, the ladies have one opportunity for redemption. Will being shorthanded destroy their last chance of a comeback? This hilarious and touching comedy explores the roots of friendship, loyalty, and community. Join the ladies as they share their joys and woes… and drink beer… and eat chocolate...

Shorthanded – a Ladies’ Game highlights not only the “good old hockey game” but also the advances that women have made in traditionally male sports. This play has been rewritten especially for ITR by playwright Michael Grant as an all-female version of the hilarious, award-winning, original all-male Shorthanded. ITR is honoured to debut this new version. 

There are 5 performances to choose from.  Dinner shows are on October 21 and 28 at 6 p.m., and while they are not sold out yet, we’re getting there - so don’t delay!  The
mouthwatering menu is posted on our website at http://itrtheatre.com/documents/DinnerMenuFall2017.pdf .)  There are still good seats available for October 20 and 27 at 7:30 p.m. and the October 29 matinée at 2 p.m. still has availability too.  All performances are at the Osgoode community Centre, 5660 Osgoode Main Street, and doors open half an hour before show-time. Tickets cost $20 for adults, $16 for students and seniors and $55 for the delicious dinner theatre. As a special bonus, the playwright will be there on opening night and will host an optional Q&A after that show as well as after the first dinner show.
