The four solid months of preparation and rehearsal definitely did not go unnoticed. It was another fantastic production put on by the Rural Arts Project. The Canadian play “Mary’s Wedding” written by Stephen Massicote is a show that begins at the end and ends at the beginning. It’s a story of love, laughter and heartbreak that will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time.
The attention to details was phenomenal. The props and set design was simple yet incredibly elegant. With very minimal costume changes and set changes, the use of the technical aspects guided you along the journey back and forth between Canada and Europe with ease and grace. However, if you want to stay dry, don't opt for the front row.
Director Mark Bye was inspired to do this play just by reading the script. He felt it was a story that needed to be told in the Chateauguay Valley as it takes place in a small rural village, in which it would take two days to travel to the St Lawrence River. The idea of having it in a barn was a very easy choice to him. He looked and travelled to many barns around the area and then came across the centuries old barn located in Rockburn and his inspiration came to life. Bye adapted the barn to an extraordinary production making it one of the most inventive ideas that have ever taken place in an old restored barn. There are more showings that are not to be missed, so grab your loved one, or get a group together and enjoy the brilliant work of the Rural Arts production. You will not be disappointed.
