Curved wins at Quonta!
Next stop Theatre Ontario in North Bay again hosted by yours truly Gateway Theatre Guild
Curved is about family relationships. This is the story of an eleven year old girl growing up in an extended family of strong, compelling and imperfect women, all of whom struggle with freedom, love, sexuality, and dying. Curved is Kristin Shepherd's new darkly comic and intelligent play about what it is to live a curved life.
THIS SHOW IN NORTH BAY WAS A GREAT SUCCESS.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THOSE THAT CAME OUT TO SUPPORT.
