WAM July 2-3 Makin Time With The Yanks
If you can remember 1981, you probably remember one of the most popular plays ever created by the Mummers Troupe, Makin’ Time With The Yanks.
And you probably remember the original cast: Rick Boland, Janis Spence, Brian Downey, Kay Anonsen, Jane Dingle, and Paul Steffler. The play is set in 1939 and tells the stories of both Newfoundlanders and Americans as two cultures clashed on the dancefloors of St. John’s.
Well, with a new cast, the show is back. Resource Centre for the Arts Theatre Company produces the re-mount at the LSPU Hall in downtown St. John’s.
And the show has the original director - Mary Walsh. Mary, of course, is well-known for her work with CODCO, This Hour has 22 Minutes, Hatching Matching and Dispatching … not to mention her many movie and theatre credits.
I spoke with Mary this week in the studio.
