You’re all set! Wanda Kozynski, played by Jenny Loring, is from present-day New Jersey and is dealing with breast cancer after problems related to her breast implants. The play was written by Lisa Loomer, the screenwriter of the film “Girl Interrupted.” The play was first produced 13 years ago at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles and moved to New York a few years later. Because of the subtle themes and characters in the play, the Valencia High School Theatre will be turned into a black box theatre for the run of the show. This means that only 68 seats are available for each night’s performance, with the audience surrounded by the characters and action. Due to the mature nature of the play, some material may not be appropriate for children under the age of 13. Although part of the plot line may seem to have a very dark tone to it, Loomer engages the audience with several ironic and humorous characters, including several comical male characters who bring new meaning to the phrase, “Men are from Mars and women are from Venus.” Valencia drama teacher Steve Whelan is director. “The Waiting Room,” a drama dealing with women’s health issues, opens with the Valencia High School Theatre adapted to a black box format on Monday and closes Friday. All show times are at 7 p.m. “The Waiting Room” deals with women’s beauty as seen through the eyes of a male-dominated society. There are three women who are waiting in a doctor’s office to be treated for their specific physical ailments, each woman from a different time period of world history. Forgiveness From Heaven, played by Bavani Selvarajah, is a woman from 18th century China who suffers from gangrene after years of foot-binding. Victoria Smoot, played by Emily Fleischer, is a woman from Victorian England who has several psychological problems, but is suffering mostly from the side effects of wearing a corset since the age of 14. last_img read more

Man facing hate charge told to stay away from Jewish schools synagogues

first_imgMONTREAL — A Montreal man charged with inciting hatred online against Jews had his bail conditions tightened Monday to ensure he stays away from Jewish schools and synagogues.Robert Gosselin made a brief court appearance at which the conditions were officially added.The 55-year-old Gosselin was charged with two counts of uttering threats and one count of inciting hatred in relation to posts on the Facebook page of the Journal de Montreal newspaper. Among the messages was one that threatened to “eliminate Jews by killing an entire school of Jewish girls.”Gosselin’s new conditions were added after members of Montreal’s Jewish community raised concerns that specific protections of its institutions and places of worship were not spelled out.David Ouellette of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs said his organization’s legal team had raised the issue with prosecutors.“There was a lot of concern within the community that these conditions had not been imposed from the beginning,” Ouellette said. “We’re very satisfied that these conditions have been imposed today.”He noted the anti-Semitic threats were made just days before the Oct. 27 attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh, which raised anxiety levels in the community.Gosselin was represented by a new lawyer Monday who requested the case be postponed to Mar. 4.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
