Daughter Mary-Rose has moved away to Toronto. Mom doesn’t want to waste money on expensive long distance calls so she’s recording all the news on tape to send to her. Dad can’t keep up, zany Gramma, with her Gaelic outbursts, is dealing with the out of control cat and they can’t seem to avoid all the other colourful residents of their tiny Nova Scotian community. This sweet, funny and whimsical play by Atlantic Canadian favourite, Mary-Colin Chisholm, is a celebration of story, family ties and a longing for home.

The 2018 Kaqa'nata Multicultural & Diversity Summit is a great opportunity for individuals, businesses, organizations and their staff to learn, share, grow and implement new strategies on cultural understanding and diverse populations in Nova Scotia and across Canada.
Hosted by the Wagmatcook Culture & Heritage Centre this event has been years in the making. From our experience in hosting local to international visitors the opportunity to learn about many different cultures is at an all time high.
Their eagerness to understand Indigenous and other multicultural ways of life in Canada began to open up new discussions. Soon we approached local groups about partnering on an event where this sharing and learning can broaden into the local cultures found in grassroots communities across Nova Scotia.
Fast forward a few years and here we are, planning the event we always spoke about and now delivering on this idea!
From our keynote presentations, cultural performances in music and dance to the traditional protocols and tasty foods that will be offered, this event is sure to bring a fresh new perspective to your shared experience.
We look forward to hosting you on our opening nights on Tuesday, June 26th starting at 6:00pm!

Alma is a career shoplifter at the local Co-op, with a knack for getting the "five-finger discount." When she's caught in the act by Dom, an overzealous security guard, there's more revealed than the steak she has stuffed up her skirt. Along for the ride is Phyllis, Alma's hapless accomplice who doesn’t share Alma’s cool demeanour or knack for snappy comebacks. Dom is ready to lock them up and throw away the key, but his affable senior partner, Otto, intervenes with a more sympathetic view of the crime. As these four oddball characters share their wildly different takes on the situation, complex views on morality and ethics begin to emerge in this biting comedy by one of Canada's finest playwrights.
