Two comedies from Canada’s theatrical past!
Widows’ Scarlet by Hilda Mary Hooke, one of London Ontario’s first playwrights, and Brothers in Arms by Merrill Denison, one of the most produced plays in Ontario in the 1920s.
In WIDOWS’ SCARLET, Dr. Troyer has been accusing the women of Long Point of witchcraft but he meets his match in a clever young widow who will make him the butt an elaborate practical joke. In BROTHERS IN ARMS a businessman and his wife wait for a ride to the train after a weekend in the woods, but an encounter with a woodsman challenges their perspectives on money, valour and the Canadian identity.
