Full of humour and heart, The Wonder of It All is a witty, touching and accutely observed new comedy by Canadian playwright Mark Weatherley, which has been entertaining audiences across the country for the last few years,including a highly successful run at PEI’s Victoria Playhouse last summer.
If marriage is the right to annoy one special person for the rest of your life, then Charmaine and Kingsley have the perfect marriage. That is until a surprise from their past meddles with the certainty of their future. But after 25 years is it too late for them to rediscover the redemptive power of love?
4-stars “a very appealing comedy”
— Stage Door
“Weatherley’s play is in the vein of Canadian playwright Norm Foster, a master of this sort of comic misadventure for modern lovers. So, if you are looking for an entertaining piece of theatre that doesn’t deliver too much subtext “The Wonder of it All” will have you cheering for two likeable lovers, who need a gentle reminder of why they fell in love with each other in the first place.”
