a Philadelphia premiere by Judith Thompson directed by Blanka Zizka
February 28 – April 1, 2001
Grab yourself a slice of Patsy’s scrumptious rhubarb pie and settle down with this poignant Canadian play, about two women as far apart as opposite sides of the world – but once as close as Siamese twins. Years ago, in this desolate farm town, Patsy took a poor little waif called Marie under her wing. Now, Marie has become Francesca, glamorous star actress – but today, her roots will catch up with her. As Patsy and Francesca meet for the first time in two decades, their past and present electrically collide. They confront not just each other, but the stalker who violently changed their lives. An evening of laughter, tears and mystery, of sophistication and home-grown wisdom.
