AN INSPECTOR CALLS IS OPEN!

 

Scarborough Players production of An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley is back with performances this week and next (January 19 – 28, 2023).

The prosperous Birling Family is gathered to celebrate their successes and the engagement of their daughter Sheila to Gerald Croft when the sudden arrival of the mysterious Inspector Goole brings the celebrations to a halt. Goole is investigating the apparent suicide of a young woman. Are the Birlings responsible? What deep, dark and complex secrets will be revealed? Set in 1912, just two years before WWI, this thrilling play offers a passionate plea for social change and social justice.

Recommended for ages 12 and up.

The show runs January 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 at 8pm and January 15, 22, 28 at 2pm

A NOTE ON MASKING

To Our Loyal and Understanding Patrons.

Although there is no governmental mandate that requires businesses to enforce masking in their space, there is no legislation that prevents a business from requiring masks to be worn on their premises. To date the only feedback that we have had from our regular ticket holders is that requiring masking makes them feel more comfortable at the theatre, particularly at crowded performances. We do make exceptions for those who can provide documentation of legitimate disabilities or medical conditions that would prevent them from being masked. If you fall into one of these categories, simply have the appropriate documentation with you when you come to the theatre.

During the run of Storm Warning in October Scarborough Players was forced to cancel 1/3 of their performances due to a Covid outbreak in the cast. Although much of the reason behind our masking policies is concern for the health of our performers, volunteers, and audiences, it is also a simple financial fact that having to regularly cancel performances would not be a tenable situation – particularly after several years of having no ticket income during the pandemic.

As recently as November 14, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health strongly recommended wearing masks at all indoor events. Masking remains one of the simplest and most effective ways to reduce the spread of respiratory viruses, including Covid. As we see increasing cases across the province of hospitals, particularly pediatric hospitals, running above capacity and being forced to cancel elective procedures, we feel that we have a duty to our community to follow recommended guidelines to reduce the spread of the respiratory tridemic that is currently circulating.
