“…delightful, warm and incredibly entertaining.” – Lisa O’Connell
A rollicking tale of times past, Lara Bradley’s Blind Nickel Pig brings to life a heart-warming and hilarious cast of characters living in Sudbury at the turn of the last century; The sisters Flyberry: Annie and Frannie, Fast Willie Dorland, barfly Pickles and songstress Miss Mabel-Lynn – to name just a few. An original, local, and (maybe) true story by one of Sudbury’s most talented writers.

Lara Bradley – Playwright
Lara Bradley writes plays, thanks to the support of Pat the Dog and the wicked dramaturgy of Lisa O’Connell and Matthew Heiti. She has also collaborated with the talented Cait Hepner, Cora Eckert, and Rick Duthie (with Matt pulling it all together) on the recently produced #TheWatertower at the Sudbury Theatre Centre. A former Sudbury Star reporter, Lara’s day job is now in communications. She lives with her family – Peter, Sebastian and Quinn– in a little log cabin in Sudbury and is grateful for their encouragement and support. Blind Nickel Pig is about storytelling and inspired by sisters: her own sister Kari, her grandmother and great auntie, Loretta and Aileen, and two teenage sisters who broke out of the Sudbury Jail in the early 1900s (who may have been called Annie and Frannie).
