About the Play:

Winner of the 2002 Jessies, Sydney Risk Award for outstanding new play by an emerging playwright.

Cariboo Magi is full-length drama by Lucia Frangione. An unabashed celebration of the power of theatre to renew our lives and banish our cares.

A drunken Anglican minister who has failed to convert anyone in ten years, an avaricious saloon keeper with a murder in her past, a pregnant child star who has become too old for her roles and a man who claims to be the last of the Mohicans all need a new lease on life. They intercept a contract meant for a San Diego theatre company, form a bedraggled troupe of players and head north, through the wilds of the Cariboo gold rush to perform a Christmas Pageant for the Theatre Royal in Barkerville, BC. On their way, they rehearse a hilarious pastiche of Hamlet, The Last of the Mohicans, A Christmas Carol and The Gospel of Luke, gradually finding a way to legitimize their only true talents as "professional liars."

Cast: 2 women, 2 men
