Ethereal, mysterious and poignant, award winning Alberta playwright, Stephen Massicotte’s World War I drama, Mary’s Wedding, materializes in the David Spinks Theatre Feb. 28 – March 2 at 8 pm nightly, with a matinee at 2 pm on Saturday. TheatreXtra’s final production of the 2013 – 2014 season tells a sensitive and beautiful story of love and loss during a precarious time in history.
“The play is about Mary and Charlie, and their struggles of love during war, but it all takes place in Mary’s dream. I know that audiences will be surprised with how emotional it is,” says director, Taylor Fornwald (3 year, BA Drama/ B. Ed major).
Although there are only two actors in the play, putting together a production that transcends reality is a challenge, and one Fornwald is excited to tackle. “Above all else, this is a love story and its theme is something everyone can connect with,” she says.
