Half-Cracked: The Legend of Sissy Mary

by Mary-Colin Chisholm

July 6-August 6, 2023

What do you get when you pair a failing middle aged scholar with two spinster sisters living in the backwoods of Cape Breton Island who have a knack for weaving fact and fantasy into an impossible blend of truth, fiction and gossip? A quirky and hilarious comedy written by Nova Scotia playwright Mary-Colin Chisholm. When Scott’s car breaks down at the foot of Sissy Mary’s driveway, she believes it is destiny, much to the dismay of her fiercely protective sister Yewina. The sisters’ secluded lives are about to be shaken and Scott’s dead end existence upended in this very Cape Breton story about truth and lies, the bonds of sisterhood, some chickens and a cougar.
