ARC’s hometown run will be followed by dates in Sussex, St. Andrews and Fredericton before heading overseas for dates in Germany and France.
Building on momentum established in its inaugural season, the Atlantic Repertory Company (ARC) is entering its second year with an award winning play and European tour.
Mary’s Wedding, written by renowned Canadian playwright Stephen Massicotte, is a stirring memorial to both the Great War and great love. Mary’s Wedding is a love story set against the backdrop of World War I. On the eve of her wedding Mary dreams of Charlie, her first love. Set in Western Canada, Mary’s Wedding is the story of a recent English immigrant to Canada and a young farmer’s romance that unfolds through a series of dreamlike memories, punctuated by the innocence of new love, the courage of youth and the cruelty of fate.
Following its opening this week in Saint John, the ARC production will tour throughout the province visiting Sussex, St Andrews and Fredericton before travelling overseas to three German cities and a final performance at the Canadian embassy in Paris.
Mary’s Wedding will open in Saint John and will run from October 9-11 at the BMO Studio Theatre, 112 Princess Street at 7:30pm.
