Backyard Theatre returns to McCrae House. You’re invited to Mary’s Wedding!

GUELPH, ON, June 28, 2018: McCrae House Backyard Theatre returns for another year with Mary’s Wedding. The show opens Saturday, July 7 and runs Wednesdays through Saturdays until July 21 at 7 p.m. in the backyard of McCrae House. New this year, there will be Saturday matinees at 3 p.m. on July 14 and 21.

Set against the backdrop of the First World War, Mary’s Wedding is an epic story of love, hope and survival. The story of Mary and Charlie’s romance unfolds through a series of dreamlike memories, punctuated by the innocence of new love, the courage of youth and the cruelty of fate. Mary’s Wedding is a tender, poignant and unforgettable story by playwright Stephen Massicotte. Jessi Elgood and Tayves Fiddis will portray Mary and Charlie.

Director Jay Wilson returns to Backyard Theatre following last year’s original production, Guelph in Postcard’s – The McCrae Years.

“This is an actor’s play,” says Wilson. “It is all about the words, the story. All that is needed are two fine storytellers, a backyard that becomes a field, and an audience willing to fill in the details as we dream together. A unique opportunity for a very Canadian intimate outdoor theatre experience.”

Tickets are $20 +HST and are available at

McCrae House is located at 108 Water Street. For more information, visit
