Friday

Royal Wood with special guest Kerri Ough at The Playhouse. Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Royal Wood has established himself as a true musical talent. The two-time Juno Award nominated artist released his latest album, California Nights, in April of 2018. Inspired by both loss and love, the songs on this record are an ode to the classic styles of Tin Pan Alley and Laurel Canyon. 7:30 p.m. $15-$30.

Stephen B Lawrence at The Muse. With a voice as true as the rock he calls home, NFLD’s rising country star Stephen B Lawrence makes his Muse debut on March. 7 p.m. $10.

A Brief History of the Maritimes and Everywhere Else in the Open Space Theatre. TNB’s 50th anniversary season continues with the world premiere production of A Brief History of the Maritimes and Everywhere Else by New Brunswick playwright Ryan Griffith. On a winter’s night in a rural New Brunswick cabin, Terry tells a story to his child, a story of the family’s history with links to the distant past. This story confronts a truth in the present, a truth that is a mystery until the end of the play. From celebrated Fredericton playwright Ryan Griffith (Returning Fire, The Boat, Fortune of Wolves) comes a gripping and hugely moving new work that will haunt you long after you leave the theatre. March 13-17. 7:30 p.m. $31+HST
