    Echo Players Presents: Mary’s Wedding by Stephen Massicotte. Directed by Kelly Barnum. Sponsored by: Berwick Retirement Communities.

    From Playwright’s Canada: “On the night before her wedding, Mary dreams of a thunderstorm, during which she unexpectedly meets Charlie sheltering in a barn beside his horse. With innocence and humour, the two discover a charming first love. But the year is 1914, and the world is collapsing into a brutal war. Together, they attempt to hide their love, galloping through the fields for a place and time where the tumultuous uncertainties of battle can’t find them. A play with a heart as big as the skies that serve as its stage, Mary’s Wedding is an epic, unforgettable story of love, hope, and survival.”


    Evening and Sunday matinee shows.
