ORLEANS OLDER PLAYERS present "Canada's Worse Verse"
in the Richcraft Theatre at the Shenkman Arts Centre.
Curtain times 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets $10; students
and children under 12 $5 available at the door. Vilified
by critics, James McIntyre, James Gay, James MacRae and
James Gillis have been branded as Canada's worst poets
and are relegated to the far reaches of the afterlife,
looked after by a depressed and somewhat cranky angel
named Lettice. Unless they can find an appreciative audience
for their much-maligned verse, they will not be able to
achieve the one thing that alludes them--a peaceful immortality.

by Alena Liapko entitled "Lights & Landscapes"
from Jan. 8 to Feb. 10. Salon B is hosting two series

with Right to Privacy quotes. The second series, "What
do you see?" plays a game on your eyes. The Trinity
