19th CCLA / GCTC Lawyer Play: Rule of Three

April 12, 2018  

  Rule of Three
by Agatha Christie

The CCLA/GCTC 19th Annual Lawyer Play is fast approaching. Do you have your tickets yet? Though our Preview night is now sold out we still have tickets available for our Gala Performances on June 7, 8 and 9th.  

A thrilling triple bill of short one-act plays involving murder, theft and deception. Written by the world-renowned mystery author Agatha Christie and featuring a cast of more than 20 local lawyers, judges and community leaders.

We not only present a fantastic show, but will also have some of Ottawa’s finest caterers in house. Thursday evening, long-time GCTC supporters Thyme & Again will be catering the reception. Friday, we welcome Coconut Lagoon, with culinary specialties from South India created by award winning chef Joe Thottungal. Saturday’s caterers are still to be confirmed.

In addition, there will be beer, wine and spirits for sampling during the intermissions. Kichesippi Beer Co. will be sampling a selection of beers Thursday through Saturday. Top Shelf Distillers will be on site Thursday with their Mixologist, offering a custom designed cocktail. Also Thursday evening, we will be sampling Harwood Estate Winery wines. Friday evening will feature sampling of Maple Whisky from Kinsip House of Fine Spirits, and Saturday we will be offering tastes of North of 7 Distillery’s Rye Whisky. Both Friday and Saturday we will also have samples of sparking wine from Andrew Peller Ltd.

As always, the show features cameo performances from prominent community members. This year’s lineup is as follows:

Wednesday June 6: Catherine McKenney, Councillor - Ward 14
