The Winter 2019 EngPlay was an original comedy murder mystery where a colourful cast of Waterloo engineers at a remote mansion had to figure out “whodunit” when their eccentric host is murdered. 
Fifteen students are gathered at the remote home of an eccentric sponsor to find out the winner of a large grant. Their stay is interrupted by a winter storm, cutting them off from civilization. Just as the worst of the weather hits, a grisly death occurs. Who could’ve done it? Find out in this term’s EngPlay!
 

Continuing tradition, The Fall 2018 EngPlay was written and directed by own very students and described The Complete History of Waterloo: Abridged!

Staring down an exam in a subject no engineer can fathom; our hero must resort to gratuitous historical revisionism in order to defeat the most terrifying enemy of all: their academic record. Taking us on a trip through the bowels of time, from the beginnings of traditions we know and love to the end of seemingly major characters. In Waterloo, some things never change.

Except the clouds, they were installed recently.

The Spring 2018 EngPlay was written and directed by some of our own very students and chronicled a modern day twist on the classic tale of Arthur and the sword in the stone: 
What does it mean to be an Engineer? Once upon a time, it meant that you were someone intelligent, a problem solver, a visionary! Now, it’s a profession met with ridicule and disdain; its good name tarnished by the likes of U of T. Things seem grim for the world of progress, technology, and distruption.
 
But therein lies a prophecy: “One day someone truly worthy of restoring peace to this profession will rise above the others. Until then, a lone wrench sits in the middle of campus, waiting for the chosen one. One who will use it to find what was lost.”
 
The Winter 2018 EngPlay was a production of the musical Lunch:
A series of vignettes about raging hormones, inane fights, and first love all revolving around lunch period in this hilarious and heartwarming rock/grunge musical that reminds us just what middle school is all about. From Kelly, the most popular girl in school, to Mophead, the free-spirited lead singer of the school’s own punk band, to Misty, the depressed outsider who always sits alone, everyone is preoccupied with improving their social status — particularly with the all-important Annual Eighth Grade Dinner Dance looming in the near future.
