The performance features Thrush as a storyteller and reflections of her memories as she grows up from a child into an older, mischievous woman.

“I would describe this show as ‘tears, delirious laughter, & dancing toward reconciliation’,” says Neil Cadger, founder and artistic director of LTIFA.

Thrush’s acting portfolio includes regular appearances on CBC’s North of 60 and Arctic Air. She also has won a Canadian Screen Award for her appearance in the TV hit drama Blackstone.

To buy tickets for the performance, you can visit Rotary Centre for the Art’s website.
