Going to St. Ives

Going to St. Ives

by Lee Blessing 

April 5 - 14, 2018 

A thrilling confrontation 

In the pleasant living room of a beautiful country home in the quiet village of St. Ives, England, two brilliant women exchange pleasantries over cups of tea and scones. However, we soon realize that this is no ordinary meeting. The action of this exquisite play takes us to the heart of modern Africa, and vividly explores themes of motherhood, personal sacrifice for the greater good, and the West's responsibility to their former colonies in the developing world. A sold out hit at the 2012 Edmonton Fringe, the dialogue crackles with intensity and wit, and features two of Edmonton's finest actors.

Starring Patricia Darbasie and Belinda Cornish
Directed by Julien Arnold
