Overview

In Marion Bridge, three women in their thirties come "home" to Cape Breton to be with their dying mother. Each in her own way tries to deal with the painful loneliness the lives they have chosen for themselves have left them with�each is trying to reconcile what they have become with what they thought they wanted out of life and with what they thought their parents wanted for them. Nothing, of course, has turned out exactly the way anyone imagined it would.

Ironically, for a play which demonstrates so clearly that no one is ever really understood, Marion Bridge is ultimately about understanding. But "understanding" as process�the ongoing and generous ability and willingness to see things differently, and to "take someone else's word for it." It is a play about "never being able to go home," but always being able to "start over from there."

1999 nominee for the Governor General's Award for Drama
