With its second show of September, Handsome Alice Theatre is back and this time Glitterverse Productions is helping out with the award-winning play The Good Bride.

After its debut last season in Edmonton, Rosemary Rowe won a 2016 Sterling Award for Outstanding New Play for this nuanced exploration of religious fundamentalism and the Calgary production is in good hands with Trevor Schmidt once again directing.

In it we meet 15-year-old Quiverfull Christian Maranatha, who wears her wedding dress every night as she awaits the day her 28-year-old groom comes to claim her. But as her pre-wedding wait wears on, she finds herself confronted with questions her faith may not be able to answer.

The Good Bride runs September 22 to October 1, 2016 at the Motel Theatre, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE). Tickets are available at or by calling 403.294.9494.
