Get your ticket for the 20th Annual Lawyer Play
May 9, 2019
From June 5-9, GCTC will host 23 local lawyers as they bring their talents to a very different courtroom: the stage. The premise of the play is simple: an Ottawa radio station must scramble to put on a cobbled-together version of The War of the Worlds, by H.G. Wells.
Will the audience be tricked into thinking that aliens are attacking the capital? Will the lawyers accidentally shout "OBJECTION" and lose track of their lines? There's only one way to find out.
Remember, buying a ticket to the Lawyer Play not only gives you access to a fancy gala evening, but also to a handy tax receipt! Tickets are $110, with a $60 tax receipt. Along with some of the city’s top caterers, as always, there will be beer, wine and spirits for sampling during the intermissions. Don’t miss out on treats from Coconut Lagoon, Harwood Estate Winery, North of 7 Distillery and much more!
You don’t want to miss cameo performances from prominent community members:
Thursday June 6: Sheila Bayne, Ted Mann, Brian Parnega
Friday June 7: Madam Justice Lise Parent, Madam Justice Heather Williams
Saturday June 8: Laurence Wall, Ian Stauffer, Madam Justice Giovanna Roccamo
Tickets can be purchased by calling our box office at 613-236-5196 or just pop by the corner of Wellington and Holland. You can also visit us online to purchase tickets and find out more about our cast and creative team.
