About the Play:

In a Blue Moon is full-length drama by Lucia Frangione. After her dad dies, six-year-old Frankie and her mom move to a cottage where they meet Uncle Will. Over time, a tender and unlikely love story emerges as the three discover a new understanding of family.

In a Blue Moon is a visually beautiful tale about creating a new life in a new landscape. When Frankie's dad dies, her mom, Ava, can't afford to live in the city anymore. But the only asset they're left with is a farmhouse situated on 20 acres of land far outside of town. Ava decides to move there and start an Ayurveda clinic on the property, and at the same time give her precocious and grieving daughter a new start. One problem presents itself, though: a squatter who won't leave. Will – a professional photographer, long-estranged brother-in-law to Ava, and uncle to Frankie – lives rent-free on the farm and isn't eager to give up his space. What starts as a tense relationship develops in unexpected ways as Frankie finds a role model in her uncle and Ava grows attached to the companionship of this other man. In a Blue Moon combines memory, dance, photography, and heartfelt emotion to examine three characters who each grieve in quite different ways. Along the way they discover love, compassion, and companionship as each member of the trio finds peace in their new reality, in their own way.

Blue Moon premiered with The Arts Club Theatre in Vancouver in 2015 and toured to Western Canada Theatre Company in Kamloops in the spring of 2016 and then on to Thousand Islands Playhouse in Gananoque Ontario, in August 2016.

Cast: 1 woman, 1 man, 1 girl
