From the theatre company that brought us Once: Africville Stories (2015 Fringe Festival Best Drama, Best Script Awards) and Speaking In Tongues (2016 Fringe Festival Top 5 Hit Award), comes The Return a contemporary drama exploring modern ambition, personality dissolution and the corruption of family relationships. Vicki Flemming, a beautiful, wealthy socialite suddenly returns to her family homestead in the fictional, rural Black community of Coleville, NS after a decade of absence. Initially her visit appears to be for personal renewal and an attempt to heal the broken relationship with her sister Allee- a born-again Christian and traditionalist, who remained in the family house to raise a family. However Vicki’s presence soon unearths family secrets and unleashes a series of incidents that destroy the façade of both sisters’ lives. The play ends with ‘a reversal of roles’ as the now unhinged Vicki ‘appropriates’ Allee’s life (including her husband and child) and becomes the head of the house in Coleville, while Allee leaves her traditional lifestyle to become a socialite.
