Cape Breton University’s Boardmore Playhouse is presenting a special performance of No Great Mischief on Tuesday, September 29, at 7 p.m. This one-time performance is being held in support of The Liz and Harry Boardmore Award – helping students to pursue their education and ease financial burden.
Based on the Alistair MacLeod novel, No Great Mischief tells the story of the long history of the Clan MacDonald, beginning in 1779 as Calum Ruadh leaves Scotland to begin a new life on Cape Breton Island. Haunted by the stories of their ancestry, two brothers seek to reconcile their past with their present. Filled with Gaelic song and humor, the cast of eight actors and musicians playing multiple characters deliver a lovely, heartbreaking, funny and shocking story. No Great Mischief has played to rave reviews in theatres across the country.
“After a very successful summer performing No Great Mischief around Cape Breton, the cast and crew are very happy to be back together to perform the play as a fundraiser for the Liz and Harry Boardmore Award at CBU. Liz and Harry Boardmore were mentors to all of us involved in this production and we’re honoured to support their legacy with this stage adaptation of one of Canada’s most well- known novels, written by a Cape Bretoner. Harry and Liz would have loved this play,” says Todd Hiscock, Boardmore Theatre Director.
Tickets are $20 and are available at the Boardmore Theatre Box office: Mon-Fri 1-5pm and one hour prior to show time. Visit www.cbu.ca/boardmore for more information.
