Mary's Wedding by Stephen Massicotte|
August 2014 marked the 100th Anniversary of WW1. In remembrance of the sacrifices made during "The Great War", Peninsula Productions along with The City of White Rock are staging the poignant Canadian play Mary's Wedding by Stephen Massicotte.
In the early months of 1914 while seeking refuge from a sudden storm, Mary a recent immigrant from England and Charlie an Albertan farm boy find not just shelter, but each other. Six years later, on the night before Mary's wedding, she dreams of Charlie. In her dream she is with him when he joins the C Squadron of Lord Strathcona's Horse. She is with him in the trenches and ultimately she is with him at the battle of Moreuil Wood. By marrying scenes of Prairie thunderstorms, and polite tea parties with the horrors of war, Mary's Wedding captures Canada's sacrifice with sensitivity and beauty.
