March 12 – 30, 2014 – Call 780-434-5564 for tickets
An aging theatre actress recruits the assistance of an unruly teenage girl in a last ditch attempt to memorize her lines for an all female production of King Lear. One woman fears the slow erosion of her talents and starts questioning her own value as an artist. While the other struggles with the loss of her mother and a desperate desire for independence. It is a comic and poignant struggle for individual independence and desperate comradeship.
A comical and touching story about the strength of the female spirit.
