Two Plays at the York Street Train Station

I'm the Artistic Director of the NotaBle Acts TheatreCompany in Fredericton. You may or may not be aware that we have a play in our summer theatre festival, currently running through August 4, which takes place in the old (now restored) train station on York Street, and is in part about the history of the building from 1985 to the present day. If this is something that might interest you and any of your contacts, here is information on the show, which has two more performances (July 27 and August 1 both at 7 PM) and is running in conjunction with another show that takes place in the liquor store parking lot.  This information is also available on our website at

The Station by Step Taylor, directed by Emily Bossé and Len Falkenstein

The changing face of the York St. Train Station provides backdrop for a man’s life, in this short play about lost love, questionable choices, and possible redemption. Performed in one of Fredericton’s most beautiful historic buildings.

Alice Loves the Beach by Sarah Higgins, directed by Alex Donovan

On a stationary bus on a downtown street, two strangers share memories and discover a strange and moving connection with each other, one that prepares them for the journeys they must make in the future. A play on a bus that will take you to unexpected places.

Cast: James Corbett, Ida Orenbach
