WAM July 16-17 Petrina Bromley
This Marvellous, Terrible Place, a book many of us know from our or our parent’s coffee tables, has been adapted for Rising Tide Theatre’s Trinity stage by actor, writer, musician Petrina Bromley.
The collection of photographs and reminiscences created and archived by Yva Momatiuk and John Eastcott captured a way of life in Newfoundland and Labrador on the way out. Petrina has created a series of songs, monologues and dialogues to accompany onstage projections of the photographs.
I asked Petrina to tell me a little about the book.
