The strength and fragility of everyday people is the cornerstone of Joan MacLeod’s work and The Valley is her latest gem. In this timely and moving story, a dramatic police encounter binds four people together – a mother and her teenage son, a policeman and his wife. How they – and all of us – are connected is the stuff of great drama.
“Canadian plays speak to us in a way that plays from other countries don’t. There is a common language, and Victoria’s Joan MacLeod, winner of the Siminovitch Prize and the Governor General’s Award, speaks that language better than any writer I know. Her writing is subtle; it is calm on the surface with floods of emotion running underneath.” -Michael Shamata, Belfry Artistic Director
