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 dreams of Charlie, her first love. Set in Western Canada during the First World War, 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.
2014-2018 marks the Centenary of the Great War, the 100th Anniversary of Armistice (November 11th, 2018) 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.
