I am Marguerite will be on stage at the Alumnae Theatre, 70 Berkeley St., Toronto
April 10 – 25, 2015
In 1542 Marguerite de Roberval contrived to join the great expedition of Jaques Cartier and the Sieur de Roberval to found a colony in the New World. On board ship, Marguerite chose love over duty and her brother abandoned her on the Isle of Demons off the north coast of Newfoundland. After two and a half years on the desolate island and driven half mad by loneliness, hardship and memories, she now has a chance of rescue. Will she take it?
Based on a true story in Canadian history.
Directed by Molly Thom, the talented cast includes:
Daniela Pagliarello as Marguerite
with Christopher Oszwald as her lover, Eugene, Chris Coculuzzi as her brother, Hili Kivilaht as her nurse, and Sara Price as her mentor, the Queen of Navarre
On April 8th I will be giving a talk at the Alumnae about the play and its history
