Before the Leaves Turn, by Jamie Bradley, is set in a small town inspired by Sackville, New Brunswick during the span of the First World War. Presented by three actors, this reading will introduce the audience to two families who are experiencing the highs and lows of these difficult years. Touching, poignant and funny, the charming script tells the story of those “left at home,” and the characters will inspire audiences with their courage and humanity in the face of terrible uncertainty.

Before the Leaves Turn was originally produced in New Brunswick and completed a successful tour through Nova Scotia in 2016. It has been a hit with people of all ages, from children to seniors and veterans. This Remembrance Day, in partnership with Kick at the Dark Theatre, commemorate the day by taking in this special reading at the Museum.
