Rated R

Jobless, penniless, and, above all, hopeless, the unmotivated patriarch, Ki-taek, and his equally unambitious family working for peanuts in their squalid basement-level apartment. Then, by sheer luck, a lucrative business proposition will pave the way for an insidiously subtle scheme, working as an English tutor for the teenage daughter of the affluent Park family. Now, the stage seems set for an unceasing winner-take-all class war. How does one get rid of a parasite?

**CANCELLED** – The DEVI School – The Great Divorce (C.S. Lewis) @ The Astor Theatre
May 29 @ 7:00 pm
**CANCELLED** - The DEVI School - The Great Divorce (C.S. Lewis) @ The Astor Theatre
Our annual performance by our friends at the DEVI School is always one we look forward to, and they never fail to impress us with their performances on stage, their technical know how and their thought-provoking choices.
The DEVI School welcomes you to come and see its rendition of The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis.
Written in 1946, the storyline follows a narrator on his bus ride from ‘The Grey Town’ to Heaven where he meets a series of interesting characters and personalities on his journey who are muddling their way through the difficulties and challenges of human nature.
Riddled with allusions and references, C.S. Lewis’ novel takes us on a journey of collective discovery of shared human nature, which, from paper to stage, is amplified tremendously.
The play itself is a celebration of overcoming difficulty which we send as a very small but nonetheless tremendously important message of hope during these difficult and fear-filled times.
Mark your calendars for 29th May at 7pm at the Astor Theatre.
We will also be having a bake sale in the concessions area of the theatre lobby, with proceeds going to the DEVI School
Stay safe and well and we hope to see you there! Entrance is by donation at the door.

Lauren Inglis is a grade 12 student at Liverpool Regional High School. At a young age,
Lauren discovered a love for music. She took off on a journey of studying piano, trombone
and singing! Lauren realized her deep passion for trombone/piano playing and began
developing extraordinary skills through The Royal Conservatory of Canada. From 2017-2019
she was the piano accompanist for Queens County Vocal Troupe, where she spent hours in
the theatre preparing kids for musical theatre productions. She accompanied an entire MTI
Broadway Production with this troupe, mastering the piano accompaniment of Stephen
Sondheim’s “Into The Woods Jr”. She was accepted and is an active trombone player in The
Nova Scotia Youth Wind Ensemble in 2017 and The Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra in 2019!
Lauren is pursuing a career in Music Education at Acadia University this coming fall! She
loves drawing and writing in her spare time.

Ashley-Rose Goodwin spends her days balancing the life of motherhood alongside her deep
passions for music and theatre. She began performing theatrically and studying piano in the
early 90s. Theatre has always been a second home to Ashley, so she decided to pursue a
Theatre Studies Degree shortly after completing high school. Motherhood stepped in and
took over in 2006, so Ashley dedicated her life to raising her boys, working on exams for
piano through The Royal Conservatory of Canada and diving heavily into community theatre.
She opened a private studio focusing on piano training and theatrical performance for youth
in 2010. In 2017 she established Queens County Vocal Troupe, a musical theatre group for
youth focused on building self-confidence, vocal skills and performance training. 2019 rolled
around, and Ashley felt ready to return to Dalhousie and complete her Theatre Studies
Program. Since returning, she has been placed on The Dean’s List and has successfully
entered the Music Department, where she has trained vocally for the past year. You will find
Ashley enjoying nature in her spare time, reading, playing outside with her kids or writing.
Ashley is excited to share her vocal repertoire that she has studied this past year & is thrilled
to share the stage once again with Laure n!
