Marion Bridge

by Daniel MacIvor
Directed by Barb Guthrie

This all Canadian play is both touching and funny.  A flamboyant, alcoholic and under-employed actress, a nun suffering a crisis of faith and a soap opera addict come together under one roof.  What could possibly go wrong? These three estranged sisters are attending their mother’s deathbed, and as they try to co-exist in the old family home, memories surface but don’t quite jive.  This is a delightful play about sibling relationships, forgiveness and acceptance.

The play is set in a small community not far from the town of Marion Bridge in the Cape Breton region of Nova Scotia sometime in the last decade.  Written by Nova Scotia native and multiple award-winning playwright Daniel MacIvor, it is beautifully crafted theatre.

Tickets: $24 at (in store, on-line, phone) & at the door

One Body too many

A silly haunted-house romp based on a 1944 movie. Originally written as a vehicle for Jack Hailey (aka Oz’s Tin Man). Cyrus J. Rutherford, a screwball… sorry, eccentric millionaire, dies and his heirs gather to split up the loot. Instead, they end up splitting heirs. Then brave insurance agent Albert Tuttle solves the mysteries and sorts out the mess – and, of course, finds romance along the way. This is just silly, silly fun that will heat up the February chills and get the 10W40 winter blood flowing.

Reserved tickets $20; Door $22; Student $10. Payment by cash at performance.

Christmas Day!


Many Canadians have a day off work on December 25 and many spend the day with close relatives or friends. It is customary to exchange gifts, enjoy a special festive meal and, perhaps, attend a special church service.

In some Canadian families and in the United States, a mythical figure called Santa Claus brings gifts. He travels on a sleigh pulled by reindeer, enters homes via the chimney and leaves presents and candy in Christmas stockings or in a pile under the Christmas tree. In other families, individual members exchange carefully selected gifts. Popular gifts are toys, games and candy for children and clothes, music, alcohol and practical or luxury items for adults. Canadians may open their presents on Christmas Eve after a special church service or during the morning or after lunch on Christmas Day.

The original meaning of Christmas is a special church service, or mass, to celebrate the birth of Christ. The story of the Nativity, or the events surrounding the birth of Jesus, are particularly important in religious celebrations of Christmas. However, many traditions that are around today have their roots in pre-Christian winter festivals. These include the importance of candles and decorations made from evergreen bushes and tree, symbolizing everlasting light and life.
