World War I drama caps TheatreXtra season

Ethereal, mysterious and poignant, award winning Alberta playwright, Stephen Massicotte's World War I drama, Mary's Wedding, materializes in the David Spinks Theatre Feb. 28 to Mar. 2 at 8 p.m. nightly.

TheatreXtra's final production of the 2013-2014 season tells a sensitive and beautiful story of love and loss during a precarious time in history.

"The play is about Mary and Charlie, and their struggles of love during war, but it all takes place in Mary's dream. I know that audiences will be surprised with how emotional it is," says director Taylor Fornwald (third-year, drama/education major).

Although there are only two actors in the play, putting together a production that transcends reality is a challenge, and one Fornwald is excited to tackle.

"Above all else, this is a love story and its theme is something everyone can connect with," he says.

Tickets are available at the University Box Office. Individual tickets are priced at $11 regular, $7 seniors/students.
