Marion Bridge ... a play by Daniel MacIvor

Marion Bridge was nominated for a Governor General's Award. 

When three daughters go home to Cape Breton, they must confront not only their dying mother, but also the lives they have come to lead. Each in their own way attempts to sort out the emptiness and loneliness that has come to rule her day-to-day life. The ideas of what they wanted to be and what their mother wanted them to be is all the more torturous as the daughters begin to finally understand what they are and why they are that way. Marion Bridge is the humorous and touching story by Daniel MacIvor that demonstrates the absolute power of realization and how it heals as much as it harms.
