About this show

Filled with quirky characters, this warm-hearted portrait of a family finding its way blends laughter and poignancy into a delicious treat. Set on a farm in Saskatchewan, Artichoke is the turbulent story of Margaret and Walter, estranged for fourteen years after Margaret discovers Walter's illegitimate child, who she ultimately raises as her own. One summer, Margaret satisfies her need for culture and affection with a visiting professor, and much to the surprise of everyone, opens a door to reconnect her family. Glass is a master of characterization, mood and dialogue, and this production spotlights the inability of people to connect and relate with each other, even in the closest circumstances. This engaging dramatic comedy, populated by colorful, intriguing characters, is perfectly suited to our community and our intimate theatre setting. Join us in this journey to find the meaning of divine forgiveness.
