A funeral will be held on the main stage Of the festival theatre on Monday at 8:00 p.
The public is invited.
We ask for your patience and understanding at this time.

Was alcohol a factor in the accident? The police have informed me that the driver of the vehicle Was not inebriated.
Reporter 1: Are you now overseeing the operation of the festival? Yes, yes I am.
Reporter 2: And how do you spell your last name? Smith-jones.
Just the way it sounds, with a hyphen.
I know some of you gentlemen and ladies are on deadline, But if you'd like, there are sandwiches.
Cheryl: You wouldn't believe the phone calls we've had this morning.
Ken gass wants to offer us The downstairs at the factory theatre for the show.
I've had calls from york university and mcmaster Offering us lights and equipment, And I had a phone call from that guy Who collects the pornographic art.
He says he'd like to sponsor the production.
What are you doing? Where are your car keys? In a little pocket thing.
Where are you going? I need to return a book.
You're an active young woman who loves corny smacks Almost as much as you love soccer.
Slate your name, read your lines.
Kate: Kate mcneil, stellar artists, jeff thurber.
They have twelve essential vitamins And are a wonderfully crunchy way to start your day.
Oh! Karen hazzard: Jesus christ! I'm sorry! Karen hazzard: Did I say Kick the ball at the camera? I am so sorry.
Do you want me to do it again? Karen hazzard: No! (knocking at door) Oh, not again.
I don't want anymore! I don't- oh god Sorry, just uh, put them over there Or anywhere.
Find a space.
That's a lot of flowers.
Ellen: Yes.
I suppose you want a tip.
Um, my condolences.
Ellen: What? Oh, well the flowers aren't really for me.
What? Ellen: A friend died and he didn't have any family So they're sending flowers to me Under the mistaken impression that we were close, Which we haven't been for ages.
It's all very embarrassing and irritating.
(sighs) basil.
You should know better.
Yes, her name's sybil, she's very cute.
Are we done here? Sloan: You mean his name is sybil.
What? How long have you had him? Ellen: About a year.
How do you know it's a man, A him, male? Uh, it's a panther.
See, the stripes are brighter on the male And uh the body's thicker at the base, see? It seems so obvious when you point it out.
You've had him for a year And you don't even know what sex he is? It was a present from a friend.
A kind of a joke.
He was trying to teach me responsibility.
Sloan: Well they are a lot of responsibility.
That's some joke your friend played, Giving you an exotic animal as a pet.
Sounds like a jerk.
Well, he's dead now, so Ha ha.
Sloan: Sybil's dehydrated.
Ellen: (sighs) what? Where's your bathroom? Upstairs.
Excuse me? Is this gonna take long? (loud honking of horns) Excuse me.
Um, how long before this clears up? What am I, kreskin? (sighing) Jack: Running late? Yes, I'm supposed to be in a play tonight.
Jack: You're an actress.
Well, I'm just an apprentice.
It's my first year.
I just play maids and fairies.
Do you like it? Oh yeah, it's fantastic.
I mean, it's the theatre.
What do you do? I'm a movie star.
Aren't we all.
I always thought he'd grow old And die in the arms of some jamaican cabana boy, But no he got run over by a pig truck.
Oh god.
And now I'm alone, Just me and a dehydrated chameleon.
He's coming around, see? I had a panther for years, but I don't have the room anymore.
They need a lot of attention, But they pay you back.
How exactly? Sloan: By changing colours, right? It's so cool.
What's your name, young man? Young, young man.
Ellen: Sloan.
You're so nice.
Would you like a cherry coke? Or maybe a glass of wine? (panicked, out of breath) Kate: Oh excuse me but where is everybody? No show tonight.
But I'm only half an hour late and I'm just third faerie! You haven't heard? Heard what? Oh my dear, oliver welles, he died last night.
What? So I'm not fired? Did you hear what I told you about oliver Kate: Yes.
Oh that's, that's terrible.
I'm so sorry.
How? He was hit by a truck.
A pig truck, apparently.
Oh my god.
No, no, we were just talking last night.
So were we.
So? So what's gonna happen to hamlet? Nahum: Hamlet will be hamlet.
An ineffable tragedy of the human spirit That still resonates, even today.
Oh god.
Oh god! Now just to allay any fears, richard smith-jones is handling All of the day to day affairs of the festival.
And I must add that he's doing an absolutely wonderful job.
We'd be in a pretty sorry state without him, so (claps) (applause) Well, on behalf of the board I'd like to thank you for all you've done already, ms.
(applause) Well now, um, I'm sure some of you have missed your supper So I have arranged For a little texas-style buffet in the vip lounge.
So please go and help yourselves y'all.
(chuckles) enjoy.
You know I uh, I don't envy your job Over the next few weeks.
May: In what sense, dear? Holly: Oh, you know, there's bound to be trouble About who's gonna take over the festival.
You know, I was on the board Of the carnegie museum in pittsburgh And we lost one of our directors.
It wasn't pretty.
Well, in this country Picking an artistic director is always a bloodbath.
You know what? My advice, get it over with quick.
Don't give the board any time to think.
Just be decisive.
The plain of auvers.
I'm sorry? That haunting van gogh at the carnegie.
Oh, yes.
Yeah that's gorgeous.
You think so? I always found it quite disturbing.
He painted it four days before he shot himself.
You know I was there for such a short time so (laughs) You know what? Listen, I am just gonna uh, Go check out the buffet and see if there's any ribs left.
Can I rustle you up something? No, thank you.
This is it, sal.
He looks more alive than you or I.
Who'll do us when we're gone, sal? Who'll do us when we're gone? (knocking) Everything ready here? Yes it is, ms.
Um, tomorrow, after the funeral, What will you do with oliver's body? I mean, will you cremate it right away, or He's scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
Um, would you Would it be possible to Um, I mean legally it's Never mind, never mind.
I'm sorry.
I'm just, I'm just a little bit lost right now.
So We understand.
I'm going to be sick.
I'm so ashamed.
I feel like I let oliver down.
Well that's because the theatre is a family And you feel like you betrayed him, But really it's not the end of the world.
You didn't get caught.
I hate my agent.
I don't, I don't want to do commercial auditions anymore.
No more corny smacks.
Claire: I stopped doing commercial auditions When I was hired here.
I felt I was beyond them.
Dialogue--it was so stupid too.
(cell phone beeps) Message.
I'm going to read a sonnet at the funeral tomorrow.
Really? Did they ask you? No, but I think oliver would have wanted me to And it's great exposure.
Fuck! I got the commercial.
Oh fuck off! What am I gonna do? Are you kidding me? You're going to do the commercial.
But it shoots tomorrow.
I'm gonna miss the funeral.
It's a national.
Think of the money.
And the exposure you get there Far outweighs the exposure you're gonna get Sitting in the audience of a funeral.
No, no, it's not that.
It's- Claire: It's what? It's what? It's loyalty? (laughs) okay, no offence but You're an apprentice.
It's not like you and oliver were best buddies.
I wanted to be there.
(exasperated sigh) Geoffrey: Excuse me, am too late? Sal: No.
Take your time.
Oliver: So this is what it takes for you to drop by and say hello? And what have we here? Oh.
That would be the proverbial hatchet, I assume.
Keep it.
I've read it a thousand times.
I didn't waste my life, did I? Maybe the last few years I did, And university, that was a waste.
' what was I thinking? But there was a while there, I did something worthwhile.
I think I moved people, touched them.
I think we did, together.
That wasn't a waste, was it? Oh tell me it wasn't.
Shut up.
Oh, make an effort, would you? I'm talking to you from the other side, for god's sake.
That must mean we have some kind of a connection.
Or do you hear voices all the time? Is this a crazy thing or do we have a connection? Geoffrey: Shut up! Jesus! I'm sorry.
Hello, geoffrey.
Hello, may.
May: I'm so glad you came.
I really don't know why I did.
Because he was your friend.
Was my friend.
Geoffrey I want you to come to the funeral.
Would you? I want you to speak.
Oh may, what What could I possibly say? The truth.
It might be refreshing.
Please, geoffrey.
For me.
(relenting noises) Oliver: Don't forget your book.
Just Check.
Check one, To be or not to be, that is the question.
Maria: Get off the stage! What do you mean he won't do it? He says he Can we have some more colour on the coffin? Bring 35 through 65 up ten.
Anna: He says that as an anglican, He's not allowed to perform the funeral services Anywhere but in a church.
But, jesus christ! They do burials at sea, don't they? Where are the masks I asked for? Trevor said they were cut.
Trevor? Maria: (laughing) he said they were tacky.
I like them.
They are not cut.
You get me those greek tragedy comedy masks Because they match the greek columns.
And you tell trevor That if he wants to diddle with the design, He's go to go through me first, all right? Anna, can't you just handle the minister thing? Do we even need one? Oliver didn't believe in god.
I don't care what oliver believed! Look, we need religious content, all right? Somebody tonight has got to mention god.
So I want you to go and find me a preacher And bring him back here by 7:30.
Okay? Do you understand? Anna: Yes, I understand.
Did you find jack crew yet? Oh god! Anna, anna, anna, anna, anna, anna, anna, anna.
What kind of gel are you using? It looks like a Halloween pageant.
Um Anna, anna.
Well, richard.
This is going to be a difficult evening.
No, not if everyone keeps it under five minutes, It'll be fine.
I meant Emotionally difficult.
Oh, god! May, I'm sorry.
I'm just so caught up with the details.
That's all right.
We all handle grief in our own way.
Who's that? May: Oh geoffrey! You came.
For you.
There's a chameleon in the green room.
I'm so sorry.
I will get it right away.
No, no, he's mine.
His name is sybil.
Oliver gave him to me ages ago.
I put him the green room Because he spends so much time alone at my home, And I've heard that chameleons really crave attention.
Is that true? I wouldn't know.
Oh no, no, of course you wouldn't.
I'm sorry.
I didn't mean- Anyway, I wanted to tell you that he's in the green room, So you wouldn't scream when you saw him.
Many have.
Thank you.
I appreciate the heads up.
Maria: Okay everyone? May I have your attention please.
The time limit for speeches is five minutes.
If you go over I will flash the lights.
We have a lot of people speaking And if we want to bring the show in under two hours We're going to have to keep up the pace.
Thank you.
Thanks maria.
Richard, my sonnet times out to three minutes, Do you think I could possibly do two? No claire, absolutely not.
One sonnet only.
Hmm? Anna! Finally.
Thank you so very much for coming And at such short notice.
I don't know if anna mentioned to you but, um, We thought we'd like to, you know, Make a very little reference to god in the service.
Um, not very much.
You know, five mintues.
Would that be all right? Oh yes, fine.
I think I can come up with something Appropriate for this crowd.
Richard: (laughs) ah, great.
Let's get this show on the road, huh? (subdued applause) Crikey.
I'm glad he's dead.
It would have killed him to see this.
On behalf of oliver welles, I would like to thank you all for coming.
He certainly would have appreciated the full house.
(giggles) Richard: Oliver was more than a friend.
He was a colleague.
For the last eight years I have been general manager And because of oliver's commitment To making the festival more accessible, And because of his willingness to forge stronger ties With the business community, we have been able to raise Attendance at the festival by 23 percent.
I make this promise to oliver, I will continue (applause) Ellen! Geoffrey.
Okay, but do you know about the thing? What thing? (laughs) it's so disgusting I can't even say the words.
The skull thing? The skull thing, yes.
I didn't think he was serious.
I've made some calls.
People hung up on me.
They said I was sick.
Somebody threatened to call the police.
I can't handle this, geoffrey.
Okay well, I'll take care if it.
Oh god! Thank you! Wait, you're not thinking of doing this yourself, are you? (laughs) no.
Although I can't deny that thought Hadn't occurred to me once or twice.
It's good to have you back.
But I'm not, I'm not back.
I'm just I'm visiting.
Ellen: (sobs) (crying) It looks a bit like act one of the boys from syracuse up here.
(laughter) I met oliver at the manitoba theatre centre in 1978, And I was intoxicated.
The intellect Sensitivity.
And that ability he had To drink two bottles of beer at the same time Audience: (laughs) Without spilling.
Albert shultz: So he looked right at the woman with the flowery hat And without missing a beat he said, "well, if it's not my car I'm certainly not going to clean the upholstery.
" (laughter) Claire: No longer mourn for me when I am dead.
Than you shall hear the surly sullen bell Give warning to the world that I am Fled.
From this vile world, with vilest worms to dwell.
She's a climber, that one.
Terrible actress.
Oh she sets my teeth on edge.
Claire: For I did love Geoffrey tennant? Richard smith-jones.
I'm the general manager.
Hi, pleased to meet you.
Oh what a sad day.
Sad, sad day.
May tells me you're going to speak.
Consensus is four to six minutes.
Sad day.
Uh, you're on after her second sonnet.
Damn her.
Praising thy worth despite his cruel hand.
Oh good.
Hi My name is geoffrey tennant And I've been asked to come and help celebrate the life And mourn the death of oliver welles.
I dug out a copy of a play That oliver had directed me in at one time And realized I'd written down a bunch of notes from rehearsal And I thought I'd Maybe share some of them with you.
Uh, here's one.
(reading) thank you ladies and gentlemen, The scene will be fine as soon as we can all get The knitting needles out of our pubic hair.
Audience: (laughs) Geoffrey: Uh, here's another one.
(reading) the theatre is an empty box, And it is our task to fill it With fury and ecstasy and with revolution.
You know for a time, for a time, There was a kind of electricity in this place I've not experienced anywhere else, Because oliver made us believe that what we did had meaning.
He made us believe that love could be rekindled, That regimes could be toppled By the simple act of telling a story truthfully.
Ridiculous ambition really.
But it was a beautiful idea.
Now it's all gone to shit now.
I mean, we all know that what really matters Is that the cash registers keep ringing And the tourists keep streaming through the gift shop And when I look around at the wreck That this theatre's become under oliver's reign, I'm reminded of those words from macbeth.
If thou couldst, doctor, cast the water of my land, Find her disease and purge it to a sound and pristine health I would applaud thee to the very echo! (smattering of applause) Minister: I've been asked to say A few comforting words today about god.
Well, comfort is something that god reserves For those who are obedient to his will.
A great preacher once said, "satan hath not a more speedy way nor a fitter school, To bring men and women into the snare of concupiscence And filthy lust of wicked whoredom, Than those places of plays and theatre.
" Anna? Who is this man? He's an ordained minister.
He was the only one available.
Men seek pleasure in the company of other men And women in the company of other women.
They come together in their shame to Get him off.
Flash the lights.
And unwholesome acts of depravity.
Get him off! Flash the lights! Flash the lights! Minister: Now, I don't hate homosexuals, but I do hate what they do.
Why? Because the bible says, "if a man also lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, They shall surely be put to death, Their blood shall be upon them.
" (fire alarm rings) Homosexuality is disobedient to god's will Because it runs counter to the divine command to procreate! And god blessed noah and his sons- Uh, ladies and gentlemen, There appears to be a small fire in the building.
Please exit in an orderly manner.
Thank you for your cooperation.
May: Good morning, everyone.
I am keenly aware of the interest That all members of this board have In the question of selecting a new artistic director.
So today I will need someone to move That we appoint an interim artistic director immediately.
I move the motion.
Thank you holly, But not yet.
Yesterday I was prepared to suggest that there is only one person Who could fill this role: Our general manager, richard smith-jones.
However, after the extraordinary events of last night, I have to say I've come to a different conclusion.
Who the hell is geoffrey tennant? Reg: Of course we know you, mr.
We saw your marc anthony.
And your prince hal.
Geoffrey: Well that was a long time ago.
Sal: We missed your hamlet.
Well that was very short.
How can we help you? Ah.
Well I wonder if you could do me a favour Of removing oliver's head from his body, And setting the head aside prior to cremation-- Saving the head.
Okay, let me explain that I'm not crazy.
With all due respect, we have heard otherwise.
Geoffrey: That was a temporary condition And I assure you I don't want to do anything weird with the head.
As a matter of fact, it was oliver himself Who requested that his flesh be removed, And that his skull be used In all future productions of hamlet.
So you see it's not weird, and in fact, it is notarized.
We've never removed a head before.
We've sewn them back on.
Well, I imagine it's the same thing but in reverse.
And there are legal implications.
You see, I would have thought that the ethical implications Of not respecting a man's last wish, Would outweigh the legal implications.
Furthermore, I believe that the state has no place In the nation's bedrooms and, by extension, their graves.
We can remove the head, but we can't do the rendering.
We're not equipped.
I see.
And where do you suppose a fellow would go For such a service? A taxidermist? I would begin with the less reputable firms.
Thank you.
Let's do this thing.
What was it that minister called the theatre? Uh, the uh, snare of concupiscence And the filthy lust of wicked whoredom.
Silly bugger.
Really? Yeah, we had to spend the entire day on the soccer field Choking down corny smacks.
It was cold and we just kept doing it Over and over and over.
It was, oh it was awful.
Well, the funeral was great.
You should have been there.
Really? Claire: Yeah, my sonnets rocked.
Ooh! Look who just walked in.
This should be good.
Sloan: But the play station 2 has more titles, right? So do I go for better graphics or more games? That's my problem.
Can you go and get me some cigarettes, sloan darling.
Yeah, sure.
Menthol, right? That's right, darling.
Oh, you have a son.
Not mine, I hope.
Fuck off! I was planning on doing just that, But it would seem that fate has intervened.
I have been offered a job.
Let me guess.
Someone's hired you to slander the dead.
You're very good at that.
They've asked me to be the artistic director.
(giddy laugh) What? Well, interim artistic director, While they search for a real one, But you know how long that process could take.
You know, weeks, months, years.
You can't come back.
You're insane.
Apparently that doesn't matter in the theatre.
Geoffrey This is my home.
I don't want you in my home.
Frankly ellen, your home could use a little cleaning.
And anyway, don't you think This is what oliver would have wanted? You and I thrust together by his tragic death.
Well maybe you don't agree.
Why don't we ask him.
(grunts) Is this what you wanted you sly old devil? (mimicking oliver) that's right, geoffrey.
You didn't Mmm hmm.
I promised him that I would look after his head.
And unlike some people, I keep my word.
Woman: Oh my god! Woman: Oh my god! It's jack crew! Hey jack! You know him? Yeah, yeah.
