Mary's Wedding

Mary's Wedding by Stephen Massicotte was one of four mainstage productions premiered by playRites '02, Alberta Theatre Project's annual festival of new plays. It is a moving, lyrical two-hander, with a flexible use of dream-time that takes the action into a broad historical dimension in terms of a relationship between a young farmer and a recent English immigrant to Canada. It begins on the evening before Mary's wedding in 1920, and tracks back to show her first meeting with Charlie, their growing attraction, and his departure for the war. The war scenes are intercut with the love scenes, one dimension of time informing the other to suggest that Mary is dreaming Charlie's horrific experiences in the trenches, just as he is dreaming his memory of her.
