Edge of the Woods Theatre Presents Ralph + Lina

Fuelled By Public Energy Event

Partially set in Peterborough, Ralph + Lina is a rough and tumble romance following the struggles of two Italian lovers in the face of war, immigration and old age. Real life husband and wife Dan Watson and Christina Serra take the stage, directed by award winning artist Michele Smith (Smith & Gilmour), to tell the very Canadian story of Serra’s grandparents and their struggle to make a better life together in a new city and country: Peterborough, Canada. With 4 Dora Mavor Moore nominations (Outstanding Production, New Play, Ensemble and Female Performance) and a sold out tour of Ontario, this acrobatic comedy has proven an instant favourite with audiences everywhere.
