Play reading at Red Deer Legion explores war memories

The play-reading series will be held twice this month, Nov. 10 and 17

An original play about soldiers who make it home — and those who don’t — begins a new season of Breaking Cover this month.

The Red Deer Players script reading series starts with a special Remembrance Day presentation of Where Heroes Lie on Sunday.

This play, by St. Albert playwright David Haas, was first heard last year, but the war-themed story will be reprised as a special Remembrance Day event, sponsored by the Red Deer Legion.

A young girl writes an essay about her grandfather, who died in the Second World War, and wins a trip to a Canadian war cemetery in France.

She invites her grandmother to accompany her, and while searching for her grandfather’s grave, they meet a Canadian veteran who’s visiting the cemetery for his own reasons.

The script reading is at 1:30 on Sunday at the Legion at 2810 Bremner Ave. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. Dessert and refreshments will be available.

Tickets are $10 from the Legion, or at the door. For more information, call 403-342-0035.
