Off The Page

February 11 @ 1:00 pm

Off the Page presents a play reading of And Just So Long.
By Lower Mainland Playwright, Mahara Sinclaire.

Featuring: Melissah Charboneau, Pamela Girone, & Bobbi McLeod.

Admission: $10 minimum donation at the door.

In And Just So Long, Elenor’s daughter, the free spirited Louisa May, returns to the nest as does Elenor’s estranged childhood friend, turned Anglican Minister,Margot McKinnon. On top of all that it seems Elenor’s dead husband Walter, now ashes in his urn, is reaching out from beyond the grave.

Mahara Sinclaire is an artist, actor, director, playwright, and the artistic director for Peninsula Productions studio theatre in White Rock, B.C. Mahara’s productions and readings include Plan B, a One Act first produced for Opening Nite Theatre’s Writer’s Festival in June, 2014, explored the issues of aging, care homes, and assisted dying. Hang the Moon, a full-length dramedy, had its first staged reading produced for Siloam Festival, a festival of new work in Langley, B.C. in June 2022. Currently in the works are #6, a one act that shines light on the continuing
battle for women’s dominion over their own bodies, and a six-part coming-of-age docuseries, La Crise, set during the October Crisis in Montreal, 1970.

Mahara would like to thank team And Just So Long, whose support and encouragement buoyed her spirits from the outset of this project, and whose guidance and generosity she was blessed to receive: Liesl Lafferty (Dramaturgy), Amanda McEwan, Anna Marie Anderson, Julie Foldesi, Norman Reynolds, Sandy Abley, Susan MacRae, Yvonne Ella Weerdenburg, Helen Embury, Sue Sparlin, Val Deardon, the folx at Peninsula Productions and, Off the Page, for organizing a reading of my play.

Please note: Due to an increase in production costs, we are asking for a suggested donation of $10 minimum. We are working hard to keep Off the Page available for all those wanting to see live theatre play readings.
