For the last six years, Taking Flight has given University of Calgary drama department students an outlet to show their burgeoning talent.

These young actors, playwrights and directors perform works they produced with little assistance from departmental instructors. Student designers create the costumes, with lighting and sound crafted by student technicians. The poor harried student stage managers try to balance school and the intensely stressful job of making everything work.

The Mob, book one in drama department head Clem Martini's Feather and Bone: The Crow Chronicles trilogy, is a mult-ifaceted novel now adapted to the stage by the University of Calgary drama department.

The play showcases many parallels between humans and crows. It delves into society as a whole and causes viewers to re-examine themselves and their relationship with the natural world. According to Martini, this helps to get "in the sense of truly trying to get to the core of another species."

  Five women, five times in AlbertinePDF files may take a moment to load

Five women sit on a stage and talk about their lives -- except the five women on stage are all the same woman, depicted at different stages in her life. Michel Tremblay's Albertine, In Five Times asks the audience a lot of questions. What would I have told myself 10 years ago -- to let go of a grudge and love those around me, or to forget those who cause new trouble?

The idea of playing a multitiude of different roles in one life haunts the entire play, and is something that everyone relates to.
