Mariposa Arts Theatre's November production of

Waiting for the Parade


Set in Calgary during World War II, John Murrell’s much-loved play reminds us that the wounded are not always at the front.  Five women gather to work for the war effort while the men they love are away.  In a series of episodic, snapshot vignettes, the play focuses on the women who shared a common purpose: to serve the war effort and perhaps more importantly, to survive the war.
