The Swan Theatre Company presents

'A Fine Bright Day Today'

Monday 20th to Saturday 25th January 2014

Since the death of her trawler-man husband 30 years ago, Margaret Harvey has lived with her daughter Rebecca in a small cottage in a coastal town. Rebecca is moving out to live with her boyfriend. So when Margaret meets a stranger, Milton Farnsworth, a mysterious American who is visiting the area to paint the landscape, she invites him to lodge with Margaret during his stay.  She has become increasingly set in her ways over the years, dependent on ritual and superstition. With patience, humour, scrambled eggs and cheap wine, however, Milton gradually encourages her to relinquish control.  'A Fine Bright Day Today'  is a poignant, compelling play that leaves you with the optimistic belief that everyone deserves a second chance at happiness.

Doors open 7:15pm, show starts 7:45pm.
