Season 2019 - Marion Bridge

Marion Bridge by Daniel MacIvor

Directed by Dean Patrick Fleming

NOMINATED FOR THE GOVERNOR GENERAL’S AWARD

“… a sparkling crisp script, beautifully structured, with snappy, funny lines that dart in and out quickly like swallows, not interrupting the emotional drama of the story.” – Halifax Chronicle-Herald

Marion Bridge premiered at Mulgrave Road Theatre in 1999. Since it’s premiere, it has been produced at multiple theatres including: The Globe Theatre (London), Theatre New Brunswick, Neptune Theatre (Nova Scotia) and Ottawa Little Theatre.

The play tells the story of three sisters who reunite at their childhood home in Cape Breton to care for their dying mother. As they learn to live with each other after so many years apart, they discover the meaning of family, and the possibility that their lives can be different from what they expected and what they have come to accept.

Marion Bridge is a moving dramatic-comedy by one of Canada’s most acclaimed playwrights. It is funny, heart-warming and breathtakingly lyrical.

“His writing makes characters seem real, with audiences unable to do much of anything, other than understand and build relationships with his creations.” – Mooney on Theatre

As HVT’s new artistic director for professional theatre, Fleming had been asked to select two plays, but once his reading marathon was over, he presented them with four. Tickets are on sale now.

Two are booked for the summer, one is scheduled for just before Remembrance Day and one is being saved for February, 2020. The title of the February play is being kept under wraps for now.

“I am excited by the idea of producing throughout the year,” Fleming said. “I think we have the audience for it.” Read more… Read more…
