From Robert Latimer - The Artistic Director Of First Stages
I am writing to ask for your support for the performance on May 13th. FOR THE PLEASURE OF SEEING HER AGAIN is Michel Tremblay's tribute to his mother who was his inspiration and the driving force behind his career as a writer. Sadly, she died of cancer before he had achieved his international success. I hope it will be well received as it is presented on Mother's Day.
I am very encouraged by the responses I am still receiving from audience members. Every time I am in Port Hope I am stopped on the street or in shops and told how much the performances are enjoyed and how very important and vital these presentations are to the community. It is most gratifying to hear this. VIA DOLOROSA is very much still in some people's minds. I got an email within an hour of the performance of FAITH HEALER calling it one of the most stunning pieces of theatre they had seen. Some said WRONG TURN AT LUNGFISH was one of the most satisfying evenings ever spent in the theatre. I am very grateful to be able to give back to this community after they have been so generous and supportive of this entire venture.
I plan to expand the 2007/2008 Season to 6 performances and will
announce the plays once the rights are secured. At a time when the Arts in
