Canadian Stage has announced the lineup for its 2010-2011 season, the first year of programming from artistic and general director Matthew Jocelyn, who will stage the first production of the season in the Bluma Appel Theatre: his adaptation of German playwright Tankerd Dorst's Fernando Krapp Wrote Me This Letter: An Attempt at the Truth (September 18 - October 16), about a man who forces a woman into a marriage.

The season in this facility will continue with Robert Lepage's exploration of Hans Christian Andersen, The Andersen Project (October 21-30); Kevin Kerr's Studies in Motion: The Hauntings of Eadweard Muybridge (November 22 - December 18), directed by Kim Collier, choreographed by Crystal Pite, and starring Andrew Wheeler; Michael Tremblay's Saint Carmen of The Main (February 7 - March 5), directed by Peter Hinton, and translated by Linda Gaboriau; Jennifer Tarver's staging of David Greig's The cosmonaut's last message to the woman he once loved in the former Soviet Union (April 16 - May 14); and a currently untitled dance-theater piece (May 26 - June 1) by Édouard Lock.

At the Berkeley Street Theatre, Canadian Stage and Nightwood Theatre will co-produce Jennifer Tremblay's The List (October 11 - November 6), translated by Shelley Tepperman and directed by Kelly Thornton; Andrew Kushnir's The Middle Place (February 14 - March 12), directed by Alan Dilworth; and Tadeusz Slobodzianek's Our Class (April 4-30), translated by Ryan Craig and directed by Joel Greenberg.

The Berkeley will also be home to the mini-festival Spotlight on Italy (March 15-26), which will feature presentation of Nunzio and La Festa, two award-winning plays from Messina, Sicily's Compagnia Scimone Sframeli. There will also be la natura delle cose, a dance theatre by Compagnia Virgilio Sieni from Florence, and Basso Ostinato, a dance theatre by Venice-based Compagnia Caterina Sagna, as well as ancillary activities such as master classes and symposia.

The theater's programming will be rounded out with the fourth annual Festival of Ideas & Creation, to be held May 9-21, and with a production of Romeo and Juliet, directed by Vikki Anderson, to run June 25 - September 6 in High Park.
