WINCHESTER — There is nothing quite like the relationship between sisters. Add a parent’s passing and pointed East Coast humour, and watch the fireworks.
In Daniel MacIvor’s play, Marion Bridge, three estranged and profoundly different sisters come home to Cape Breton to deal with their mom’s terminal diagnosis.
MacIvor’s work has gained great accolades for its complex writing and refreshing focus on unique and unmatched female characters.
This acclaimed drama and latest endeavour by the Dundas County Players features Rachelle Eves as Agnes, Sharon Anderegg as Theresa, and Ami Lynn Johnson as Louise, along with voice-actors Shannon Murdock and Dylan Black. As well, local singer, Gwen Smith will dazzle with her beautiful singing.
Don’t miss this humorous and touching story that demonstrates the absolute power of love to transform.
Directed by Moira Law, with Elizabeth Barton as Assistant Director, Harmony Koiter and JP Leduc as producers, and Suzanne Steele as Stage Manager, Marion Bridge will bring to life a compelling story written by one of Canada’s best known playwrights, Daniel McIvor.
