Ignition Theatre Presents: GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES

RED DEER – Ignition Theatre is proud to present Pulitzer prize finalist Rajiv Joseph’s Gruesome Playground Injuries– celebrating the ten year anniversary of the provocative and controversial love story that has taken the theatre world by storm since its premiere in 2009. Performances begin January 17th and run through January 26th at the Red Deer Memorial Centre, Nickel Studio (Third Floor). Curtain is 7:30PM nightly. Tickets are $20.00 / $25.00 (Friday and Saturday Performances) and available online at www.ignitontheatre.ca and at the box office 30 minutes prior to curtain. Gruesome Playground Injuries is presented with a discretionary warning for coarse language, graphic imagery, sexuality and mature themes that may trigger those suffering from mental illness. Over the course of 30 years, the lives of Kayleen and Doug intersect at the most bizarre intervals, leading the two childhood friends to compare scars and the psychological calamities that keep drawing them together. “Gruesome…marks Ignition’s return to the provocative and edgy brand of theatre from which our reputation in the community was first formed. The “edgy” moniker too often suggests to the audience that the play they are about to see is either gratuitous or offensive and as such they’d prefer to wait for a more accessible production to come along. I want to assure our audience that the same values, respect and careful artistic consideration that goes into productions like The Year of Magical Thinking or The Glass Menagerie or Tuesdays with Morrie are the same values applied to the productions that carry those seemingly terrifying discretionary warnings. Gruesome…is an incredibly beautiful and complex examination of mental illness; an examination of pain, both physical and psychological, and our need to inflict pain upon others and ourselves as a means of survival. It’s a love story that desperately struggles to navigate and accept what love truly means. It’s a play full of questions, catharsis, and believe it or not, a deeply dark sense of humour.” – Matt Grue, Director, Gruesome Playground Injuries

Reel Movie Mondays: If Beale Street Could Talk

Director Barry Jenkins’ ambitious follow-up to Moonlight adapts James Baldwin’s poignant novel about a woman fighting to free her falsely accused husband from prison before the birth of their child. If Beale Street Could Talk is without doubt a romance, but it’s stronger than that because it refuses to indulge fantasy. Jenkins’ latest shows him to be our most clear-eyed chronicler of love. - Buy your tickets in advance at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery, with discounts for MAG members (Member price not available online). Tickets will also be available at the door of Carnival Cinemas on the screening night from 6-7pm by Cash Only for a flat rate of $10 each, based on availability.

Self-Compassion Study Group - CMHA

The free six week Self-Compassion Study Group combines work you do independently with the opportunity to meet with others to discuss and learn about self-compassion in a friendly and supportive environment. Much of the work of the course will be done independently using a workbook. The time together will be spent in discussion and clarifying the parts we find difficult to do on our own. Participants must purchase a workbook, on their own, prior to the first session. CMHA will not be providing the workbook needed for this course. The workbook costs approximately $20. You can purchase it online from Amazon.ca or Chapters-Indigo. Our local Chapters store does not have it in stock. They will order it for you, if you prefer to buy it from a local store. Because it is a workbook and you will be filling out the workbook pages, it is really essential that you have the book prior to beginning to work together on it.

What better way to begin your New Year than to start understanding that the power to change your life lies within you? You are your own Hero! $12 Pre-Register $15 At the Door The Hero’s Journey is a concept that has been around since 1871 and it was made widely popular in 1949 by a man named Joseph Campbell and you can look it up pretty much anywhere on the internet, but how long it’s been around and who made it popular isn’t what’s important.

Self-Compassion Study Group - CMHA

The free six week Self-Compassion Study Group combines work you do independently with the opportunity to meet with others to discuss and learn about self-compassion in a friendly and supportive environment. Much of the work of the course will be done independently using a workbook. The time together will be spent in discussion and clarifying the parts we find difficult to do on our own. Participants must purchase a workbook, on their own, prior to the first session. CMHA will not be providing the workbook needed for this course. The workbook costs approximately $20. You can purchase it online from Amazon.ca or Chapters-Indigo. Our local Chapters store does not have it in stock. They will order it for you, if you prefer to buy it from a local store. Because it is a workbook and you will be filling out the workbook pages, it is really essential that you have the book prior to beginning to work together on it.

Self-Compassion Study Group - CMHA

The free six week Self-Compassion Study Group combines work you do independently with the opportunity to meet with others to discuss and learn about self-compassion in a friendly and supportive environment. Much of the work of the course will be done independently using a workbook. The time together will be spent in discussion and clarifying the parts we find difficult to do on our own. Participants must purchase a workbook, on their own, prior to the first session. CMHA will not be providing the workbook needed for this course. The workbook costs approximately $20. You can purchase it online from Amazon.ca or Chapters-Indigo. Our local Chapters store does not have it in stock. They will order it for you, if you prefer to buy it from a local store. Because it is a workbook and you will be filling out the workbook pages, it is really essential that you have the book prior to beginning to work together on it.
