The Vagabond Players
The O'Conner Girls
By Katie Forgette
Directed by Wayne Nolan
After Tom O’Conner passes away, his wife and children come together over Christmas to excavate his mountain of personal effects. As the family sifts through boxes of papers and bags of clothing, clues to the quiet patriarch’s life are discovered. In the midst of this emotional afternoon, a long-lost neighbour pays an unexpected visit which has special significance for the dutiful daughter who has always been the caregiver in the family. Set in Minnesota, The O’Conner Girls is a sweet and charming play that explores family relationships and lets us see that virtue can be, and sometimes is rewarded.
Directed by Wayne Nolan, The O’Conner Girls features Karen Golden as Sarah O’Conner, the matriarch who must come to terms with the loss of her husband, and Kathleen Kelly Driscoll as Aunt Margie, her meddlesome, but loveable sister-in-law. Mary Adams and Margaret Shearman play Liz and Martha O’Conner, the fraternal twins who have pursued such different paths in life, and Chuck Buckley takes the role of Dr. David Stevens, the neighbour who drops by and reactivates the rivalries between the two sisters. Nostalgia, family ties and a touch of romance—don’t miss this warm and witty play that will touch your heart and linger in your memory.
