ALICE MUNRO STORIES

Show Info

“…you, dear Alice Munro, have come close to solving the greatest mystery of them all – the human heart.” NOBEL PRIZE AWARD CEREMONY 

The master of the contemporary short story, Alice Munro won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013. In this world premiere, we’ll perform two of Alice’s short stories, word for word, in a unique theatrical event that celebrates her exceptional language and the audience’s imagination.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PLAY 

I was approached by Word for Word, a theatre company in San Francisco. For over 20 years they have been putting short stories onstage “word for word,” and they wanted to bring to the Belfry their Alice Munro show. While I couldn’t justify bringing an American company to Victoria to perform Alice Munro, I was taken with the idea of the show. With their blessing and guidance, we have chosen our own Munro stories, and we’ll all be able to revel in the sublime words and blessed humanity of Alice Munro’s writing. MS
