WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Set in the fictional Northern Ontario town of Lovely, The (Post) Mistress is a fun and quirky one-woman-show, peppered with original music. Marie-Louise is the town’s postal worker. She is charismatic, effervescent, and seems to know everything about everyone in Lovely—and is eager to share all the gossip with the audience. But just as we begin to think we know Marie-Louise, her own story is revealed in a surprising turn.
WHY YOU’LL WANT TO SEE IT
Patricia Cano’s Marie-Louise sings of the beauty that is all around her in Lovely with warmth and humour (see note below). With songs in English, French and Cree, the music is supported by a simple band comprised of a piano and saxophone – the perfect addition to a perfectly lovely show.
WHAT YOU’LL TAKE AWAY
With a script and music by revered playwright Tomson Highway, this uniquely Canadian musical is full of character and charm. You’ll fall in love with the town of Lovely!
