Melissa James Gibson’s This Opens at the Berkeley Street Theatre

Melissa James Gibson This Berkeley Street Theatre

Melissa James Gibson’s modern dramedy This plays out in Berkeley Street Theatre’s historic environs

MARCH 18 TO APRIL 13  Life as a 30-something can be fraught with perils and pratfalls—at least according to playwright Melissa James Gibson’s This. Presented by Canadian Stage, this candid, witty, “un-romantic comedy” follows widowed single-mother Jane and her friends as they struggle to deal with love, loss and the sometimes absurd realities of urban life. Sharply observed and thoroughly contemporary, the play is forward-looking but also slightly nostalgic, a sentiment underscored by its historic venue. Berkeley Street Theatre, $22 to $49; call 416-368-3110 or visit Canadian Stage’s website for showtimes and more information.  —Macrina Smart
