“Marion Bridge” by Daniel McIvor, NIZ Theatre Festival

May, 2017 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Sid Williams Theatre
442 Cliffe Avenue, Courtenay, BC

Presented by ECHO Players from Qualicum Beach. A tale of three sisters – Agnes, an alcoholic actress from Toronto, Theresa, a nun and “strange” Louise, all thrown together again in their childhood home in Cape Breton, to be with their dying mother. Slowly they begin to unearth buried memories: of their childhood, parents and some events too painful to inspect in the years gone by. Marion Bridge is a place visited when they were young, and a place to which they eventually return, with a better understanding of why they have become who they are.
