Despite taking place during the Depression and touching on the heavy subjects of suicide, adultery, and poverty The Shop Around the Corner is a beautiful story where the human spirit raises above all of those horrible things. The humour and witty dialogue, along with the set and costumes, takes the audience to another place and time.  People of all ages enjoy this show because it is a fun, feel-good play, which is exactly what people need to lift their spirits in gloomy November and as they head into the Christmas rush.
