The play features two young Miramichi actors, Brittany Cormier and Joey Dignam. Tickets are $20 and will be available at Scott’s Pharmasave and Brookdale Flower Shop Inc. Set during the First World War, Mary’s Wedding is the story of Mary, a young English woman transplanted to the Prairies, and her first love, a farm boy named Charlie.

It is the eve of Mary’s wedding, a night filled with dreams: dreams of love, dreams of war, and dreams of what might be.

When Mary and Charlie, filled with the passion, vulnerability, and impulsiveness of youth, unexpectedly find one another sheltering in a barn during a thunderstorm, a tentative love is born. But the year is 1914, and Mary and Charlie must surrender their love and fate to the uncertainties of their tumultuous times. A play with a heart as big as the land that serves as its backdrop, Mary’s Wedding is a wonderfully tender, poignant story of innocent first love and the twists of fate.

Through flashbacks of key moments in their budding romance and Charlie’s tour of duty with the Strathcona Horse Regiment in France’s Moreuil Wood, we get a glimpse at the hardships and sacrifices many of our families made in the name of love and this country.

“Puts you in the 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
