Help us bring the new Roxy to life

On January 13, 2015 Theatre Network lost their home of The Roxy Theatre – which left a hole in the arts community and on 124 Street in Edmonton.

Now, Theatre Network is working to bring a New Roxy Theatre back where it belongs.

We need your generosity to Rebuild the Roxy Theatre. With your financial support the New Roxy will rise from the ashes!

The Anger in Ernest and Ernestine

“I’ve been thinking about the words ‘you always hurt the one you love’ and I’ve begun to wonder to myself from time to time, who exactly is the ‘you’? Who is hurting who?”

...two of the most focussed, committed and yet unbridled comic performances I saw all year.

Vue Magazine

Ernest and Ernestine are misfits in love. After a brief and torrid courtship, they move in to a cramped basement suite that they share with a huge old furnace that has a life of it’s own. As the apartment overheats, so does their relationship. In a series of brief and revealing scenes, we see their relationship shift from a romantic ideal to desperate disillusionment. Delivered with large scoop of physicality, anyone who has been in love for any length of time will recognize themselves in the wickedly funny and surprisingly touching The Anger in Ernest and Ernestine.
