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

  • Osgoode community Centre 5660 Osgoode Main Street Ottawa, ON, K0A 2W0 Canada (map)

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
