ENRICH YOUR THEATRE EXPERIENCE

A bright new dramedy

from a fresh Italian-Canadian voice

From the playwright/performer behind the hit comedy 8 Ways My Mother Was Conceived, and Wildside Festival favourite In Search of Mrs. Pirandello, comes a new family saga about two second generation Italian-Canadian brothers: an uptight, upwardly mobile lawyer running for office and his kid brother, who’d rather party than work. After the sudden death of their parents, they must decide whether to hold on to the family home, a rundown relic stuffed to the gills with memories, secrets and a lifetime of worthless junk. To move forward, they need to let go but at what cost to their relationship?

Michaela Di Cesare:
A Fresh Italian Canadian Voice

Centaur Stage: Were you always interested in writing for theatre?

Michaela Di Cesare: I wrote and performed a lot as a child and teenager, which I attribute to what I call my "Only Child Syndrome". I wrote a short story in grade 3 about my grandmother's passing and was accused of getting my parents' help. My mom had to come to the school to set the teacher straight and that year, I won the English Proficiency Award from the Ministry. I went on to write and perform poetry, published a few poetry anthologies and even wrote a novel when I was sent to the library for solo study during all of Grade 9 English; it was an adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream. I also wrote a screenplay between high school and Cegep, so I dabbled in other genres.
