Filled with a collection of delightful characters, Pride’s Crossing is a story of perseverance, unavoidable traces of generations past and the potential magic in seizing the moment. Ninety-year-old Mabel Tidings Bigelow, a character inspired by the first woman to swim the English Channel, relives memories triggered by current events. Scenes from the past eighty years of her life create a portrait of a lady with unquenchable high spirits despite the social confines of the times.
The production runs March 14-16 and March 21-23. All performances are at 8:00 PM.
