A story of three sis­ters

Valley Journal Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
