Minefield is a reflection of British and Argentine veterans experiences during the Falklands/Malvinas war. Taking real-life accounts from these soldiers, the play dramatizes the realities of war through the accounts of several characters including, Lou who was taken prisoner by Argentina and is now a special needs teacher, and Ruben who was in the sinking of the ship named the ARA General Belgrano and is now a member of a Beatles tribute band. Through the accounts of these veterans, Minefield reflects on effects of war on every day people and how memories of war change over time.


Play Date is a monthly play reading activity, held on the third Thursday of each month.  We read one play from around the world together. The play reading is followed by a group discussion about the play. Anyone is welcome to join and practice reading out loud, regardless of experience or level of English comprehension. With Play Date, learning English becomes fun. This is a place where you can practice speaking out loud, expand your vocabulary and meet new people. Play Date is produced by Crane Creations Theatre Company. Crane Creations is an immigrant led professional theatre company located in Mississauga, Ontario Canada. Join us for our next Play Date!
