Munro and Sons

Setting: Rural Southwestern Ontario

A young woman leaves the city to stay with her aunts on the farm. Why did she leave? How long will she stay? This gentle play looks at how family patterns repeat themselves — for better or worse.

As a new playwright, there’s a lot of trepidation about sharing your work with the larger world. This reading was a chance for me to take my first timid steps out towards a larger audience. It was really helpful to have Lisa’s support and encouragement in navigating these early stages in the play’s development.
