    In January 2019, the inaugural production of Streetcar Crowsnest’s first season,Dora-nominated and sold-out comedy, The Wedding Party, will make its uproarious debut at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, ON.

    From the award-winning creators of the beloved play I, Claudia, Kristen Thomson and director Chris Abraham comes a new comedy about two families, a wedding, mistaken identities, and love, love, love! With their latest creation, The Wedding Party, they invite the audience to take a seat ringside on the big day, while an astonishing cast of the country’s leading actors including Jason Cadieux, Virgilia Griffith, Trish Lindström, Moya O’Connell, Tom Rooney, and Kristen Thomson herself, hit the dance floor, drink too much, and try to get along. 

    "Few recent works penned by a single author sitting alone in a room have created so many laugh out loud moments.” - The Globe and Mail ★★★1/2
    "Abraham does a fantastic job managing the tight timing of all those costume changes, and keeps the heavy themes and unfolding disaster squarely in comic territory…the show is all about laugh-inducing performances (especially by Thomson and Rooney) and some superb schadenfreude." - NOW Magazine NNNN
    "What brings many pleasures and belly laughs is the convention of performers character-swapping at a dizzying rate, ranging across genders nationalities and ages." - Toronto Star ★★★★
