Written by Canadian author Warren Graves, and set in Alberta, Canada. The Last Real Summer is a fascinating and emotional story, centered around 2 young lives at the start of World War II. Narrated by Elizabeth Wharton (played by Cindy Peterson), who returns to her childhood home town after the loss of her husband, and finds herself face to face with many touching and funny memories. As she tells the story, the memories come to life on the stage as we join in her reverie.
The Last Real Summer is a story about love, war, and growing up.
This show is suitable for ages 10 and up.
The Last Real Summer has been entered into the Fraser Valley Zone Festival (Theatre BC), running at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre between May 21 and 26 (our performance is on May 26). Tickets available at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.
