Product Description
It's 1854 at the start of Now We Are Brody. The mill is boarded up as the townsfolk attempt to bury a dark shame from their past, but the arrival of a young woman with the deed to the mill threatens to unearth its secret. In The Huron Bride it is 1834 and Hazel Sheehan has braved the perilous journey across the Atlantic to work as a hired hand at her cousin's sawmill. When her cousin James asks her to marry him, Hazel is overjoyed, but will the ghost of James's ex-wife spoil their wedding plans? The mill does not yet exist in The Woods, and the land is the site of a First Nations burial ground. The interactions between the First Nations people and the first settlers put the wheel in motion for the terror that will haunt this area for hundreds of years to come. In part four, Ash, the mill stands: battered and surrounded by ash. Inside, five young people cling to life. Can hope take root on such poisoned ground?

Farther West could go a little further - The Globe and Mail

Long before Calgary playwright John Murrell started writing operas, his work was already headed in the direction of the operatic. Farther West , which first premiered at Theatre Calgary in 1982, aims to lift the bare-bones biography of a little-known pioneer prostitute named May Buchanan up into the larger-than-life. May first appears delivering one of the best opening monologues in Canadian drama. We discover her listing off lovers, while in bed with a much older john in Rat Portage (now the much less lyrical Kenora), from “a German boy from Berlin, Ontario” to “a drill master from the military academy in Hull”. When her father first found her in bed with a man, he didn’t gnash his teeth or tear his hair or cry “like they do in storybooks”. Neither did May play the part: “[I] don’t whimper nor run howling down the hall. Instead, May’s old man tells her: “You better move on, girl, best start moving, farther west. ” If young men who break the rules are told to go west, young women who break them must go even farther. When we meet her, May is in the midst of following this advice, and she keeps packing up her valise and moving along, until she finds herself, at the end of the play, pushed out into the Pacific Ocean in a rowboat to continue her western journey... In the premiere production, Martha Henry played May Buchanan – and the snoozing john was played by William Webster. In Diana Leblanc’s revival for Soulpepper, Tara Nicodemo takes on the role of May – and, in a nice nod to continuity, it’s still Webster in bed next to her. Farther West follows an episodic epic structure that recalls Brecht with occasional outbursts of violent plot. Most of it takes place in Calgary, where at the end of the 19th century, May turns from prostitute to madam and takes care of prostitutes from sick Lily (Akosua Amo-Adem), aging Violet (Kyra Harper) and simple Nettie (Christine Horne). On the ranching frontiers, the North-West Mounted Police tolerated prostitution due to men vastly outnumbering women in the territories – so May has no lack of customers, many of whom fall in love with her. Second is Thomas Shepherd (played by Matthew MacFadzean with the burning passion the whole production needs) a settler who wants to take her down to his farm as his wife.
