Award winning one-act play on stage

I, Claudia is a charming one act play that blends the humorous and the painful aspects of life’s struggles with authentic language.

I, Claudia by Kristen Thomson
Claudia is an official pre-teen, still reeling from her parents’ divorce.

Her father is getting re-married, she has a science fair project coming due and she is in the physical and emotional throes of puberty is the theme of a one act play to be held Saturday, June 8 (7:30-8:40 p.m.) in the Miners’ Union Hall.

Finding refuge in the basement of her school, Claudia discovers the pain at the centre of her brimming child’s heart.

Some important adults in Claudia’s life; her grandfather, her father’s new girlfriend, and the school custodian, help shed light on her situation.

Portrayed by a single actor (Lynn van Deursen) the four characters are brought to life with the help of four distinctive masks beautifully hand crafted by Robin Wiltse.

This charming one act play blends the humorous and the painful aspects of life’s struggles with authentic language expertly written by Ms. Thomson and delightfully portrayed by Ms. van Deursen.

I, Claudia was the winner of the 2001 Dora Mavor Moore Award for best new play.

Tickets are $12 for the PG-13 play in advance or at the door. Contact Lynn van Deursen by email at vanfam@telus.net or phone 353-2522 for tickets.
