“This is one of my favourite comedies that I have seen onstage in the last decade and I knew I had to program it! I can’t wait for audiences to experience the magic, the fun and the stories of this play written by a Ship’s favourite – Mary-Colin Chisholm.” – Richie Wilcox, AD
A hilarious comedy of two spinster sisters, Yewina, a firm and reserved woman and Sissy Mary, who has a flair for twisting fact and fantasy. Their lives take a big shift when folklorist Scott randomly shows up at their door! Set in rural Nova Scotia, this unique and quirky story will have everyone laughing as Scott goes on his quest for truth and Sissy Mary reels him in!
Genevieve Steele as Sissy Mary
Geneviève is delighted to get another crack at playing Sissy Mary and to step inside Mary-Colin Chisholm’s wonderful world with the terrific cast and crew. She hasn’t been acting much recently, what with the global pandemic and all, but she squeezed in a few performances of Calendar Girls at Neptune Theatre before things shut down, and just shot an episode of Diggstown for CBC. In previous summers Geneviève has been part of the acting company across the bay at Two Planks in Ross Creek as well as Festival Antigonish and Shakespeare by the Sea. In 2005 Geneviève appeared in Brighter Than the Light of the Sun at Ship’s Company and is so happy to be returning to this beautiful part of the province. Enjoy the show and thank you for coming!
