Congratulations to Windmill Theatre Players for their wonderful production of FOUR IN THE CRIB at the Foothills One Act Festival in High River, AB!

Synopsis.

Four in the Crib interweaves the lives of four eighty-somethings in an assisted living facility, shared over a series of weekly cribbage games.

Inspiration.

Playwright Linda Wood Edwards comes by her understanding of the subject matter honestly. While helping her mother Ethel Wood settle into such a facility here in Edmonton, Wood Edwards started to observe the struggles and routines of life there. We are accustomed to thinking of life in such places as either dreary or dull, but Wood Edwards found the residents – joyful or depressed, passive or fiercely fighting for every scrap of independence – made for compelling stories.

The Buzz.

“Four in the Crib is time well spent” — Global TV

“With the witty and original dialogue provided by Linda Wood Edwards script, the play is ultimately light-hearted and definitely laugh out loud” – Vue Weekly

“If there’s a comic nugget to be mined at an assisted living facility expect writer Linda Wood Edwards to find it here” — Edmonton Journal
