THIS MONTH'S FEATURED PLAYWRIGHT: Mara Teare
A woman and her mother gather together on every major holiday to watch The Princess Bride together. This tradition is one they have clung to steadfastly, but when the mother begins to deteriorate from dementia, the woman must come to terms with facing a world without her mother. A story of grief, loss, and the importance of ritual in our lives.
Mara Teare is a Saskatoon raised actor, singer, writer, and creator. She is a recent graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada’s acting program. Through her art and work, Mara strives to create and be a part of spaces with a strong presence of marginalized voices. Just as theatre has given her a voice, she wishes to inspire and uplift others like her through the power of theatre. She is excited to begin her journey as an emerging playwright with sad girls watch The Princess Bride. Mara firmly believes in theatre being a safe meeting space for all, and she hopes to bring the community around her closer together in joy and love through her writing. She is so excited to be a part of SUM Theatre’s First Monday collective. She hopes you enjoy the reading and you receive whatever you might need from the piece.
