Emerging Voices is a series of staged readings of new Canadian plays by local and regional playwrights directed by Nicolle Nattrass. The series allows emerging writers to have their plays workshopped by professional artists in a day long workshop and performed in a staged reading before an audience, providing valuable feedback in the creative process.
Is That All There Is? by Cheryl Mullen (Vancouver BC) Tuesday, January 14, 2020
The ‘Mother and Daughter Challenge’, a complex human relationship where the bond is so close, it may hurt. Catherine doesn’t intend to change anything about her fiercely independent life but her aging and health issues make change impossible to deny. Her only child Brenda and son-in-law Larry are forced into the mix. Don’t under-estimate the influence of a little green parrot named Jo-Bird, Catherine’s live-in companion and the play’s muse. Add the altered reality of Catherine’s tv schedule, ‘Is That All There Is’ poses tough questions we all must face as we consider our own mortality.
