“5 Stars (out of 5)…infinitely rich play…superbly realized…” Adrian Chamberlain, Times Colonist

“4 Stars (out of 4)…Magical play unfolds like a beautiful dance… everything theatre should be” Susan Walker, The Globe & Mail

“a strong start to a promising season…an affirmation of the random joys of life…” John Threlfall, CultureVultureVictoria.com

A love letter to life. Mr. Mann, like many of us, is quietly passing through life. A random office draw wins him tickets to the theatre, to see Chekhov’s The Three Sisters and in those few precious hours his life begins to make sense. His quiet yearning for happiness seems to take on meaning. And Slowly Beauty… is a fresh, gentle revelation of the beauty of life and the transformative power of art.
