Alberta Theatre Projects' latest production combines a soundtrack from a forgotten Canadian pop singer and the trial of a celebrity-obsessed, middle-aged man to form Still Desire You, a quasi-musical that blurs the lines between love and obsession. It is based on the 1980s play I Love You, Anne Murray, which detailed the events of one Saskatchewan farmer's unrequited love for Anne Murray.

Kennedy laid out a challenge to the scientists and test pilots of the fledgling NASA organization: put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. David Sington's In the Shadow of the Moon follows the triumphs and tribulations of the moon missions from Kennedy's challenge straight through to the success of the Apollo 11 landing.
