Marion Bridge is a humorous and touching story by Daniel MacIvor of three sisters who return home to Cape Breton to be with their dying mother. The sisters grapple with relationships with past lovers, with each other and with the lives they have come to lead. Each in her own way attempts to sort out the loneliness that has come to rule her day-to-day life. Marion Bridge combines drama, music, and pointed Cape Breton humour that tugs tenderly at the heartstrings.
Directed by Jane Brownrigg
Our production of Marion Bridge will be November 16-19th at 7:30. See the Tickets page for details.-->
Germaine Lauzon has won a million trading stamps, but there's a catch: they all need to be pasted into books in order to be redeemed. With her head spinning with schemes to redecorate her working-class home from top to bottom, Germaine invites friends, relatives, and neighbours to assist her with this gargantuan task at a stamp-pasting party.
Over the course of the evening, the party guests shamelessly share their secret hopes and fears, fantasize about escaping the drudgery of their lives... and surreptitiously tuck the stamps into their clothes and purses. By turns hilarious and poignant, Michel Tremblay's biting satire exposed uncomfortable topics in a way that still resonates today.
Tickets for our Spring 2017 production of Les Belles Soeurs will go on sale in early 2017. Please check back then for further details.
