Welcome to The Players' Guild
A murder in 1876... ...the killer's hanging two months later.
Rumours of a ghost in the costume room... A gray Victorian house with a bright red door.
Historical facts? An incredible backdrop for great theatre? How about both! The Players' Guild of Hamilton, the oldest community theatre in North America, is proud to announce that this coming season, patrons will get both: four great plays held at the historic Guild House - one of Hamilton's oldest and most unique theatre spaces.

There’s an Englishman, an Irishman and an American…but unfortunately, this is no joke. Held captive by terrorists, they learn that humour is their surest weapon against their captors and the safest armour to protect themselves. Each comes to know himself through listening to the stories, sorrows and joys of the others.
At the end of the play, they are capable of standing together and alone.
Director: Graham Clements
Producer: Katie Penrose
