× By Tomson Highway

A presentation of the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre production.

Back when life was simple – if life was ever simple – people wrote letters. In the small town of Lovely, Ontario, every letter passes through the hands of postmistress Marie-Louise Painchaud. Cheeky and cheerful, Marie-Louise delights in living vicariously through the stories shared in letters mailed from all over the world. Featuring piano and saxophone, the musical stylings evoke these faraway places – samba, bossa nova, tango, Dixieland and Berlin Cabaret rap. Uplifting, funny and poignant, this one-woman musical by Tomson Highway (Dry Lips Oughta Move to Kapuskasing, The Rez Sisters) reminds us that in life, you should never mail it in.

Run Time: 1 hour and 45 minutes (including a short pre-show welcome)
