Double bill of Mary's Wedding and The Dock Brief
Marys Wedding by Stephen Massicotte: A soaring love story that examines the enduring, painful cost of war. Mary meets Charlie in a barn in a thunderstorm and love is born. It is 1914, and they are separated by World War I in this dreamlike and tender story of innocent first love and the vicissitudes of fate. According to the Calgary Herald, the play is a delicate exploration of the excitement, beauty and purity of the first flush of romance... Massicotte is a gifted storyteller with an ear for detail and imagery.
The Dock Brief by John Mortimer: A dark comedy depicting an unsuccessful aging barrister asked to represent a wife murderer. He hopes that a not guilty verdict will bring him the fame that has always eluded him and constructs a masterly defense. With its ingenious ending, the London Times notes that the play touched that rare dramatic level at which comedy and tragedy are indistinguishable. A real life barrister, Mortimer is best known around the world for his creation of the television series Rumpole of the Bailey.
