LES BELLES-SOEURS by Michel Tremblay (trans. by John Van Burek and Bill Glassco)

Germaine Lauzon wins a million Green Stamps and invites friends and family to help paste them into books – and simmering resentments shake up all fifteen women. It’s been translated into 20 languages and may be Canada’s most-produced play.
A PARTY TO MURDER by Douglas E. Hughes & Marcia Kash

CAKE-WALK by Colleen Curran

Canada Day cakes disappear; an archaeologist uncovers a hidden treasure; a nun considers renouncing her vows; a bride and her mom fight a custody battle for the wedding cake. A gentle comedy about life in a small Ontario town.
