Art Thing in association with Prairie Fire, Please and in celebration of National Poetry Month bring us a new production of Canadian poet and author Molly Peacock’s solo show in poems, The Shimmering Verge.
The Shimmering Verge combines verse and prose in an exploration of the fine line between metaphor and reality in life and in art. From love, sex and marriage to loss, death and spirituality, the play uncovers the poetry in everyday life.
