The first day of Hamilton’s Plastimet Recycling Plant fire in July 1997, a young woman makes a choice that will haunt her for the rest of her life…
NEW TALENT is a powerful drama taking its audience on an authentic journey into the sordid underbelly of a Hamilton, Ontario that few of us will ever see or know about. The world premiere of Brian Morton’s newest play is a vivid exploration of the all too real netherworld of prostitution, and addiction that sadly really does exist in our city.

A historically inaccurate look at the evolution of the human race
No one is spared mockery in this comedic take on the history of our existence. Ode to Humanity, or the History of the Human Race – Abridged, is back by popular demand and set to run at the 2007 London Fringe Festival and the 2007 Hamilton Fringe Festival. First performed at the KWLT’s July One Act Festival in 2006, it was the little play that could from the little theatre that could.
