“Cottage Radio” opens tonight in FireWorks 2015

Last week, the Studio at Alumnae Theatre was a high school classroom. This week the set designer for FireWorks series, Marysia Bucholc, has transformed it into the Goderich, Ontario living room of the fictional Marley family. Chris Marley (played by Amanda Pereira) broadcasts her radio show from here. Oh, and there’s a tornado raging outside. That’s Taylor Marie Graham’s play Cottage Radio, directed by Julia Haist, which opens tonight and runs to Nov 15.
