A dreamy and innovative theatrical experience from Oscar-nominated writer Evelyne de la Chenelière, this English language premiere is a must for fans of Virginia Woolf. Directed by Vanessa Porteous and translated by John Murrell, Alberta Theatre Projects presents To The Light.

Inspired by the novel To The Lighthouse, it tells the story of a young painter who returns to the seaside home of her dearly departed friend. Reliving memories from their friendship, Lily Briscoe tries to make sense of post-war life and her place in it, guided by her absent friend, Mrs. Ramsay.

To The Light runs October 17 to November 4, 2017 at the Martha Cohen Theatre, Arts Commons (215 8th Ave. SE). Suggested for ages 12 and up.
