Get ready to fall in love with “Marion Bridge”, a masterfully crafted play by the talented Daniel MacIvor, a Nova Scotia native, that delves into the lives of three sisters drawn back to their family home during a poignant chapter – their mother’s final days. Each sister carries the weight of life’s disappointments, as nothing has unfolded according to their plans. With looming questions and unresolved resentments, the narrative unfolds with a blend of humor and touching moments.

In this play, you’ll be transported to the idyllic heartscape of Nova Scotia, where the intricate threads of family bonds, life’s unexpected twists, and the weight of unfulfilled aspirations are delicately woven together and pave the way for a theatrical experience that resonates with the human spirit. The narrative unfolds with a perfect blend of humor and touching moments, inviting you to join the sisters on a journey of self-discovery and reconciliation.

Don’t miss the chance to witness the convergence of compelling storytelling, captivating performances, and the magic of Cape Breton. Join us for an unforgettable evening filled with laughter, tears, and a celebration of the intricacies that make us human.
