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 is married to one, but pines for the other. And they all live in a small mining community in 1940s Cape Breton Island. 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 coming to terms with the meaning of love and loyalty.
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.
"It's magical to watch and the story is sweet, but it's the creative staging that makes this play truly shine!" - The Coast
