Elliott to Sink or Swim in Wells

Sunsets are the colourful sinking of the sun, so the Sunset Theatre is a perfect place to contemplate sinking or swimming.

The picturesque theatre house in Wells is home this weekend to the live award-winning play Sink or Swim by one of British Columbia's favourite character actors Beverley Elliott. She has had prominent roles in movies like Unforgiven and The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants and television shows like Once Upon A Time and Harper's Island.

Elliott is also a noted stage performer based in Vancouver and her self-written one-hander play Sink or Swim won the Best Musical trophy at the United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City.

"Sink or Swim is Little House on the Prairie meets Lord of the Flies," said Elliott.

Julia Mackey, the director of presentations at the Sunset Theatre, gave the show a space to perform it in this region for the first time.

"Set in rural Ontario, Elliott has enchanted audiences with this beautiful piece for the past three years," said Mackey.

"In this poignant, playful, and achingly relatable show, Elliott navigates the uncharted waters, big adventures, betrayals and epiphanies that shape us all into the adults we become."

Elliott performs the music as well as the dialogue. Her collaborator in the music component was pianist Bill Costin who accompanies her on stage for this production.

Sink or Swim is on stage in Wells on Friday and Saturday, both shows start at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $15. For reservations call 250-994-3400.
