After years away, Agnes, an underemployed and alcoholic actress, comes home to Nova Scotia to be with her dying mother along with her two sisters, Theresa, a nun, and Louise, a social misfit. While there, they must face the failed relationships between them, the broken nature of their parents’ union, and the impact of their own unfortunate choices. But there’s also humour and hope here as the three sisters find reunion and regeneration at the site of what was once to be their childhood Wonderland — Marion Bridge.

Iris Trimble is trying to hold it all together. She may very well fly off the face of the earth if she doesn’t hang on to the kitchen counter. At least that’s how she feels after her mother, Bernice, a lively, recently widowed fifty-nine-year-old breaks the news that she has Alzheimer’s. In an effort to cope with the stress, Iris makes her mother’s famous Everything That Is Bad For You Casserole, a childhood favourite. Her siblings, on the other hand, are on opposite sides of the spectrum: Sarah, the eldest, irately demands a second opinion, while Peter, the youngest, seems completely unfazed. As for Bernice, she’s still as vivacious as ever, always up for a good laugh, and, most of all, ready to finally put herself first.

The Gravitational Pull of Bernice Trimble is about the tricky nature of family dynamics and the effects of mental illness seen through the eyes of a young woman who’s searching for her own feelings amidst the whirlwind emotions of her family.

“Exceptionally well written. The storytelling is intense, poignant, and exceptionally nuanced.” —Winna Tse, Charlebois Post

“Honest, revealing and darkly funny.” —BroadwayWorld
