The final show of the Summer Playground Series is also this year's Rosedale on Robson Writer's Week production - a staged reading of a play that has been in development at PT as a part of our Working With writer's group. Whew, that's a lot of titles to take in, and we haven't even gotten to the play title yet: BEAUTIFUL THINGS.
BEAUTIFUL THINGS by Shauna Johannesen
September 18-20 at 8pm
a staged reading - pay-what-you-can at door (cash only)
When Colleen returns home for her father’s funeral, she has to face the guilt over missing his last days, her own loss of faith, and the reason she left town. Between the crappy flowered cards and lasagne casseroles, the over-priced caskets and hidden bottles of wine, Colleen has to decide whether she can live without the love of her life, how she fits in her messy, religious, grieving family, and what it means to live with yourself.
