WAITING FOR THE PARADE by John Murrell
""Waiting for the Parade" demonstrates the old theatrical law that a play that is local, detailed and specific often has the capacity to reach out beyond its immediate environment. Set in Calgary, Alberta, "Waiting for the Parade" deals with the way five women coped with the pressures of World War II. Geographically, the conflict may have been remote, but it still impinged on individual lives. "Waiting for the Parade" is an honest play that captures precisely the texture of ordinary hopes and despairs."
-- "The Guardian"
Set in Calgary during World War II, these 24 scenes follow the experiences of 5 Canadian women who form an uneasy alliance born of loneliness and tumult during an edgy wait for the parade that will herald the end.
There's Catherine, abandoned by her impulsively enlisted husband, Janet, a wartime dynamo compensating for a secret shame, and Eve, a pacifist school-teacher hard hit by the concept of unquestioning patriotism.
Fatalist Margaret, their senior by 20 years, has one enlisted son and one arrested for protesting. Marta, a German-born Canadian citizen, becomes a target of harassment and suspicion in her own community while her senile, Nazi-sympathizing father idles in prison growing steadily crazier.
This bittersweet drama well exemplifies the isolation & loss of those left behind, against scenes of air raid drills, Red Cross activities, dark merriment & leg-painting parties.
