HALF-CRACKED
By Mary-Colin Chisholm

This is one of my favourite comedies that I have seen onstage in the last decade and I knew I had to program it! I can’t wait for audiences to experience the magic, the fun and the stories of this play written by a Ship’s favourite – Mary-Colin Chisholm.” – Richie Wilcox, AD

A hilarious comedy of two spinster sisters,Yewina, a firm and reserved woman and Sugar Mary, who has a flair for twisting fact and fantasy. Their lives take a big shift when folklorist Scott randomly shows up at their door! Set in rural Nova Scotia, this unique and quirky story will have everyone laughing as Scott goes on his quest for truth and Sugar Mary reels him in!
