The Warpstock 2001 Event Team is pleased to announce
that the tradition of a Saturday Night Social Event will continue at Warpstock 2001.
This event is your opportunity to put the work of the day behind you and enjoy a
fabulous dinner buffet with a desert buffet table. Dieters need not attend (just
kidding)! And after your palette is satisfied, you can enjoy a theatrical production
over your after-dinner coffee.
Guests will be picked up at the Warpstock hotel
and take a 10-minute bus ride to the Stage West Theatre in Mississauga. Dinner will
be served in the theater, and afterwards the guests will enjoy a professional theatrical
production of Alan Ayckbourn's hit British comedy, "Things We Do For Love".
After the show, the bus will return everyone back to the hotel, just in time to
get enough sleep before Sunday's morning sessions.
In "Things We Do For Love", the cross-section
of a Victorian house has been divided into three flats. The owner, a fastidious
and elegant executive named Barbara, contentedly occupies the ordered, male-free
ground floor. The basement ceiling can be seen, and this is where Gilbert, a boorish
postman and handyman, is painting a nude study of his landlady. Barbara is letting
her friend Nikki and her fiancé use the upstairs flat, even though she has
taken an instant dislike to him. Ever life's victim, Nikki is destined to suffer
yet again when Barbara succumbs to an unexpected and violent passion.
The London Guardian says, "Handles a potentially
tragic theme with a rueful comic zest. This is a Private Lives for the nineties."
("Private Lives" was a British TV series).
Stage West does have certain dress restrictions.
They request dress shirts, dress slacks or skirts. No jeans, shorts, sweatsuits
or running shoes are allowed. Dress slacks and a golf shirt are considered acceptable,
but a more stylish outfit is recommended. After all, you wouldn't want to be confused
with a Linux user, would you?
