Vern Thiessen: Two Plays (print)

Andy is in trouble. Downsized from his job, his marriage in crisis, he meets a mysterious young woman who he looks to for salvation. But when his wife becomes seriously ill, Andy must make a choice: care for an estranged wife, or run away with a woman he knows little about. A haunting tale of sex, secrets, and second chances.

Winner of the Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Award for Outstanding New Play (2002) and winner of the Alberta Play Competition (2001).

“A belief in the power, or at least the grace, of silence is one of the pluses of Apple, a tightly knotted, carefully crafted play where the concept of love gets dissected and scrutinized like a renegade cell under a microscope...” —Edmonton Journal

“...we all have to eat... we all have to die....” What do food, funerals, the Edmonton tornado, and Mila Mulroney have in common? Join the elegant and debonair caterer Lumiere as he serves up a whole new eating experience.

“The dramatic fabric Thiessen has woven is a tight accumulation of emotional and narrative threads... a life picture that entertains... that frequently moves, that engages, that disturbs.” —The Ottawa Citizen

“Let’s just say that it’s black. It’s creepy. It’s deliciously morbid and delectably dark.” —Vue Weekly
