Local boy Day, a free spirit, lives next door to worldly Layla, a career-driven intellectual. The two have nothing in common. Or do they?
Over time these divergent souls come to understand each other in a way neither thought possible. A contemporary tale of romance and cultural divides so engaging it will change the way you see the girl (or boy) next door!
~ Paradise Garden by Lucia Frangione
Award-winning playwright and actress Lucia Frangione has emerged from Canada’s independent theatre scene to take her place as an important, young post-feminist voice on the lives of women in the post-modern world, boldly questioning the institutions of family, religion and sexual iconography.
Lucia is the recipient of the 2006 and 1998 Gordon Armstrong Playwright Awards and won the Sydney Risk playwright award for Cariboo Magi in 2001. Espresso was nominated for seven Jessie awards, toured Western Canada in 2004 and was translated into Polish and performed for a year at teatr Jeleniogorski in 2007. Her twenty plays have been produced by theatres such as The Belfry Theatre, Alberta Theatre Projects, Lambs Players San Diego, Ruby Slippers, Solo Collective, Chemainus Theatre and Prairie Theatre Exchange. She is currently world premiering two new plays in 2010: Paradise Garden at the Arts Club Theatre and Leave Of Absence at Pacific Theatre. Her play Sanctuary is in development with co-writer and composer, Aaron Krogman.
