A Canadian homecoming play set in rural Ontario, Perfect Pie traces the lifelong connection of two women, friends since childhood; one who has chosen to stay on her farm and the other who, driven by small town torment as a child, chose to escape. They meet, and though they have not seen each other for years, still the bond between them remains as strong as ever. While the adult women recall their past, the story of the girls at ages eight, ten and fifteen drives inexorably forward to the traumatic event which scarred and shaped their lives as adult women. When the past meets the present, a true catharsis enables them to find healing and a renewed sense of wholeness. Theatrically riveting and emotionally charged, Perfect Pie will be Shuswap Theatre’s entry in the 2018 Okanagan Zone Drama Festival in Vernon following its run in Salmon Arm.
