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.
