Making Spirits Bright

About the Show

A Coyote's Solstice Tale by Thomas King and A Voice For Christmas by W.O. Mitchell

Two short stories adapted for the stage in the tradition of live radio plays, Globe Theatre’s, Making Spirits Bright, will remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas. In the spirit of old-fashioned radio plays, we present the world premieres by this country’s beloved writers.

The show begins with a rendition of Thomas King’s popular story, A Coyote Solstice Tale. This sweet, heartfelt, and comedic journey follows Coyote as he learns that finding peace and goodwill during the holiday season always begins with family and friends.

As the reading transitions to A Voice for Christmas by beloved Canadian author, W.O. Mitchell, it continues the underlying message of the importance of family during the holiday season. Set in the 1940’s, a young boy has one Christmas wish – to talk to his father for the first time since he was sent off to war. This timeless Saskatchewan tale of family, love, and perseverance will remind us to never take connection for granted.

Making Spirits Bright ran from December 15th - December 23rd, 2021
Location: The Artesian
