ABOUT THE PLAY

From the author of The Glace Bay Miner's Museum comes this all-too-human comedy of unrequited love. Lauchie and Rory are twin brothers who could not be more different. Liza meets Lauchie at a dance and the whole family’s life is upended.The play’s two actors switch characters at a dizzying pace playing parents, siblings, children, priests, and nuns to weave the tale of a warm and tightly-knit family in post war Cape Breton coming to terms with the meaning of love and loyalty. This production will also include live music! 

This moving comedy, by acclaimed Cape Breton writer Sheldon Currie, has toured across Canada and as far as New Zealand. It won the Robert Merritt Award for Outstanding New Play by a Nova Scotian in 2004.

Running time: 1 hour 45 minutes including one 15-minute intermission
