Described as one of the brightest new comedic playwrights in all of Canada, Where You Are follows sisters Glenda and Suzanne though retirement. “Besides enjoying sightings of Patrick, the handsome veterinarian who lives next door, they prepare for the visit of Suzanne’s daughter, Beth — a visit complicated by a secret the sisters can no longer contain. When Beth arrives with secrets of her own, they all face things that will change their lives forever. A sparkling new comedy by Kristen Da Silva, filled with laughs and lots of heart,” summarizes The Rose Theatre.
