Dear Uncle Wish


  • The Theatre Centre - Franco Boni Theatre 1115 Queen Street West Toronto, ON, M6J 3T4 Canada (map)

The play centers around Bride, a young woman who returns to her childhood home of Heart’s Desire after a year of studying nursing in St. John’s to find she must stay with her Uncle, the town charmer. When he enlists her to read him the letters he receives from people all over the world, this magically real coming of age story mixes humor and heartache to make a salve for modern anxiety.

This calming and uplifting show returns to a moment in time when everything changed for Newfoundland. The present sits own for tea with the past and asks: When everything is changing so quickly and there is no going back, where do I look if I wish to find something that will never change?
