A compelling love letter that pulls at the heartstrings
On the night before her wedding, Mary dreams back to the thunderstorm during which she encounters a handsome young farm boy sheltering in a barn. Mary and Charlie soon discover the profound power of first love. But it is 1914, and as the Canadian Calvary calls for steadfast and brave men, the flash of lightning in the prairie sky turns into exploding shells in the muddy trenches of France. Although the lovers must part, they stay connected through their letters and their dreams, searching for a place where the uncertainties of battle and the costs of war can’t find them. A play with a heart as big as the prairie skies, Mary’s Wedding is a beautifully poetic story of the resilience love can bring.
“Puts you in mind of the grand passion of Catherine and Heathcliff in ‘Wuthering Heights,’ the vastness of their love mirroring the wild tangle of nature. ” —Washington Times
“As dreams do, Massicotte’s script collages things prosaic with things fantastical, things recalled with things imagined—heightened, skewed memories, letters, news from the war. “ —CityBeat, Cincinnati
