Leo Tolstoy’s oft-quoted line from Anna Karenina “Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way” applies with bracing verisimilitude to Marion Bridge.

When three estranged sisters (Agnes, Theresa and Louise) make the trip home to Cape Breton to care for their dying mother, their shared past resurfaces in all of its tangled intricacy. Eldest sister Agnes (Lynda Boyd), battling addiction and failed ambition, is forced to revisit her most agonizing decision. Middle sister Theresa (Nicola Cavendish), a longtime caregiver to their mother is questioning her Catholic faith, while Louise (Beatrice Zeilinger), the youngest of the trio, is struggling towards independence. In the kitchen of the family home, the women circle their respective pain and grief, confront the ghosts of the past, and struggle towards some hope for the future.

Under the direction of Roy Surette, and featuring the extraordinary Nicola Cavendish, Lynda Boyd and Beatrice Zeilinger, this new production brings MacIvor’s searing dialogue to life with delicacy and bone-deep honesty. Nominated for the Governor General’s Award and adapted for the screen, Marion Bridge is filled with hard-won humanism, flinty humour and a resounding belief in the power of connection.
