A play by Stephen Massicotte
Honouring the Centenary of the Great War 2014-2018
& the 100th Anniversary of Armistice, November 11th, 2018
A play with a heart as big as the prairie skies that serve as its stage, Mary’s Wedding is an epic, unforgettable story of love, hope and survival. On the eve of her wedding, Mary Chalmers dreams of Charlie, her first love. Set in Western Canada during the First World War, the story of Mary and Charlie’s romance unfolds through a series of dreamlike memories, punctuated by the innocence of new love, the courage of youth and the cruelty of fate.
2014-2018 marks the Centenary of the First World War, and the Battle of Moreuil Wood. Mary’s Wedding honours these historic events, how they shaped the lives of Canadians at that time, and the lives lost in battle.
This beloved play premiered at Alberta Theatre Projects and has since gone on to great success across Canada, the United States, Scotland and England. Mary’s Wedding will appeal to your entire community. It will be possible for the play to be performed in less traditional venues including a variety of indoor and outdoor locations.
We also offer classes and workshops custom designed for your community.
