“Lunenburg” is a philosophical comedy about healing and coming to understand oneself. There are lots of laughs, but not through humor that shocks. Rather, it is subtle comedy that envelops you in its warmth.
American widow Iris Oulette has inherited a home in Nova Scotia from her recently-deceased husband. Surprisingly, it is a home Iris knew nothing about. So, she and her best friend Natalie travel up to Lunenburg to see the home and to find out as much as she can about her husband’s mysterious dealings in the lovely coastal village. What follows is a series of twists and turns, love and laughter ... and a winsome neighbor named Charlie.
Because of renovations at LLT, the auditions will be held at the Hotel Perico on the Chapala-Ajijic Libramiento. Registration will be at 9:30 a.m. Auditions commence at 10 a.m.
