Alberta Theatre Projects
Martha Cohen Theatre
Written and Performed by Cathy Jones
A hilarious evening with comedian, Canadian icon, and one of the funniest women in television, Cathy Jones (This Hour Has 22 Minutes, CODCO). This award-winning performer returns to the stage with a hugely entertaining new solo show that is part stand-up, part confessional, and completely hilarious. Cathy Jones gets up close and personal, reminding us that sometimes the biggest and best laughs are at ourselves.
“I couldn’t resist this show. It builds and builds until you’re busting a gut. Master of a thousand voices, Cathy has won 18 Gemini Awards and starred in every season of This Hour Has 22 Minutes. She has shaped our times with her sharp commentary and characters, including the unforgettable Mrs. Enid, who makes a cameo appearance.”
- Artistic Director, Vanessa Porteous

Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style Martha Cohen Theatre since 1985. Tiered levels of seats form a three-quarter circle around the performing area eliminating the separation between the audience and performers. The farthest seat from the stage is a mere 39 feet away.
Situated in the heart of Arts Commons beside Jack Singer Concert Hall, Martha Cohen Theatre received state-of-the-art sound upgrade in 2014, as well as all new seats and a new lighting console in 2016, ensuring that it remains at the top of theatre industry standard. The Martha Cohen Theatre was named after the late Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
