Theatre for a Good Cause...

Theatre Network opens The Passion of Mary this week as part of their performance series.  I wrote a bit about the show earlier when I went to the launch of Skirts Afire a few months back. As part of this run there are a couple of special nights that will also support some good works.  The first is tonight (FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 7, 2012) and if you go to the show tonight and 20% of your ticket will be donated to the One Thousand Women, A Million Possibilities campaign. Tomorrow (SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 8, 2012)20% of your ticket will be donated to SkirtsAfire, herArts Festival. So, not only will you be seeing a brand new work by local playwright, Annette Loiselle, but you will also be able to support a couple of good causes!

The Passion of Mary

by Annette Loiselle

Mary Queen of Scots is caught in an act of treason which may force Elizabeth to finally execute her. Alone in her prison, during imagined red wine sessions with Elizabeth, as the scaffold is being built, she re-lives significant episodes with her husbands, Darnley and Bothwell, her son James, her friend Riccio and the births of her babies. She sets out to prove she is not a murderer, but a woman of passion and a leader of vision. But Mary needs redemption not just for the sins she has been accused of, but the sin she has never confessed…. until now.
