A story of three sisters
Each sister must also sort out the emptiness and loneliness that has come to rule her day-to-day life. They learn that their lives can be different from what they expected and what they have come to accept.
As one of them says: “Maybe you shouldn’t even know where you’re going. You’ll only know where it is when you get there.” And as the sisters take their journey, so does the audience and it’s a wonderful experience.
Starring local theatre regulars Tracy Churchill, Candy O’Brien and Lisa Lee, Marion Bridge has been a great challenge for these women who’ve played many roles in the past but nothing as complex as these three sisters.
And the play brings out natural movements and emotions with its minimal sets and cues.
Marion Bridge plays June 29, June 30 and July 1 at the Al Whittle Theatre in Wolfville. Tickets can be purchased in advance at The Box Of Delights Bookshop or at the door. The following week, Marion Bridge is moving to the Evergreen Theatre in Margaretsville for shows July 7-8. Reservations for Evergreen are available by calling 902-825-6834.
In both locations, doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $15 each.
