Cottage Radio & Other Plays
Cottage Radio, White Wedding & Post Alice
By Taylor Marie Graham

Cottage Radio & Other Plays is a collection of three plays by award-winning playwright and director Taylor Marie Graham. While each work is unique, they all feature the strong and hilarious rural women of Southwestern Ontario. The title play, Cottage Radio, is a three-act drama that zeroes in on the often sarcastic and always charismatic Marley clan as they band together in the aftermath of a storm. White Wedding is a large-cast comedy set at an old high school, in a hallway above a wedding reception, where friends and lovers sneak off to reconnect, recalibrate, and swim in the nostalgia of past lives. And in Post Alice, four Huron County women (reminiscent of four of Alice Munro’s protagonists) gather around a fire for an evening of stories, song, laughter, and releasing secrets into the air. A true Huron County mystery weaves its way in as the women wonder what really happened to Mistie Murray, a teenager who disappeared from the region in the mid-nineties.

Altogether, Cottage Radio & Other Plays animates a wild cast of Southwestern Ontario characters with complex histories and relationships to the land they call home.
