Notes:

“White Wedding was such an uncommonly cool theatrical experience. Playing in the upstairs hallway of the Artscape Youngplace, this Toronto Fringe show is a site specific piece that used its space to its advantage. The show explores unrequited love, the ways in which nostalgia can affect our choices and memories, and whether or not love actually conquers all . . . If you’re looking for a unique, lively evening, please come check out this show — its sure to get a wonderful reception.” – Jackie Mahoney, Mooney on Theatre (From the Playwrights Website)
