July 29-September 3

By Alice Munro

Based on the short story by Alice Munro

Penned by the Nobel Laureate herself, this delicate, funny, beautiful play about a young woman, a pilot, and a fateful cake, originally premiered at Blyth Festival in 1976.

Set just outside Blyth in the 1950s, the play follows a young woman named Edie who, after flunking out of high school, goes to work as a domestic servant for a local Veterinarian. One evening during supper, a small airplane nearly strikes the home. The pilot who emerges has a mysterious past, plenty of charm, and a few too many good looks. When he sets up a business in the field next door, flying locals up on sightseeing tours, young Edie finds herself drawn to him. Enter the Veterinarian’s wife, a gossip loving neighbour, and the sudden appearance of the pilot’s hitherto unmentioned fiancée, and this stunning portrait of romance, deceit, quiet desperation, and blue sky ambitions culminates in classic Munro style. It’s a moving, nostalgic, and humorous play about the love we seek and the love that ultimately finds us.
