Production Notes

February 27-March 9th THE GOOD BRIDE Written by Rosemary Rowe An Alley Theatre/Firehall Arts Centre production

Directed by Donna Spencer and starring Marisa Smith. Every day from 3pm to midnight, 15 year old Maranatha puts on her wedding dress and hopes that today her 28 year old groom will come to claim her. A nuanced exploration of faith in the context of religious fundamentalism, The Good Bride, is provocative, funny and strangely unnerving.

PANEL DISCUSSION – March 3, 4:45pm Religion and its Effect on the Status of Women with panelists Laura Duhan Kaplan (Vancouver School of Theology); Elba Bendo (West Coast Leaf) and Monica McKinley (Kitsilano Christian Community Church), facilitated by Donna Spencer.
