Wartime play opening Nov. 11 at Gateway Theatre

Mary's Wedding, a play about the Great War, opens Remembrance Day at Gateway Theatre.

Written by Stephen Massicotte, events in the two-character play take place in a dream experienced by Mary (Nicola Elbro) the night before her wedding. It's there where she meets the handsome farmer Charlie (Giovanni Mocibob), and love quickly blooms. But the year is 1914 and Britain is at war.

Against Mary's wishes, Charlie joins the war effort fighting Germans overseas and promises to write. So vivid are his letters, Mary comes to know the battles almost first-hand before she is forced to come to terms with the events of the war that changed her life.

The show runs Nov. 10 to 19 in Studio B at Gateway Theatre. Tickets, $30 to $37—with some $18 tickets available for the dress rehearsal show Nov. 9. Visit gatewaytheatre.com or call the Gateway at 604-270-1812 for tickets.
