ABOUT THE PLAY
This romantic comedy opens with retired sisters, Suzanne and Glenda, sitting on the porch of their shared island home. While the retirees’ conversation covers ordinary town gossip, it also ventures into much saucier territory - in fact, no topic seems off limits. A visit from Suzanne’s daughter, Beth, highlights a strained mother-daughter relationship. The sisters are keeping an important secret from Beth that they can longer contain, and Beth also hasn’t been forthright with life-altering news. Hilarious scenes follow featuring the handsome next door neighbour, a wild wedding, and some medicinal experimentation. Intermingled throughout are candid conversations about love and life, and the conclusion will leave you wiping tears from your eyes. This production will be the Nova Scotian premiere of this new comedy by award-winning Canadian playwright Kristen Da Silva.
"Da Silva delivers an experience that often feels less like a stage production than a welcome and long overdue visit with four dear friends. It's a hilarious, heartfelt, and contemplative look at love, loss, relationships and life." - Wellington Advertiser
