Theatre Wakefield is very excited to present the comedic play “Criminals in Love” by George F. Walker, directed by Claude Laroche.
Gail and Junior have their whole life ahead of them and things are looking good. But they haven’t counted on Junior’s failed criminal father or Junior’s kiss crazy aunt (and head of the ‘family’) who are set on dragging them both into a life of crime. Their only salvation lies with a homeless philosopher who makes it his mission to save their young love.
Performance dates are November 13, 14, 20, and 21, 2015, 7:30 p. m. with a matinee on the 21st at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $20 for evening performances and $15 for the matinee and are available online here or in person at Centre Wakefield La Pêche, the Boutique Jamboree, 740 Riverside Road, the Wakefield Express, 883 Riverside Road, and at the door. (Warning: Some coarse language)

About Theatre Wakefield
Theatre Wakefield, an incorporated not-for-profit and all-volunteer organization, has developed arts and culture in the Lower Gatineau Valley since 2002, with a focus on community theatre and film. To date, Theatre Wakefield has produced 14 main-stage performances, 14 dramatic readings, two community heritage outreach projects, a variety of theatre training workshops, five summer theatre festivals under the name Piggyback Fringe Festival (renamed the Ta Da! Festival in 2013) and five seasons of the Wakefield International Film Festival (WIFF).
Well over half of those volunteers received training or orientation for specific roles (e.g. stage management, lighting, sound, camera operation, producer, etc.), of which nearly half of those were youth. The permanent home for its productions is the new Centre Wakefield La Pêche.
