 In this new work, a young man goes on a fishing trip and comes home with a woman who becomes his wife. A whole new life opens for both of them — a sad story with a happy ending. Or is it? The Fisherman’s Wife explores the stories we tell each other to make meaning of our lives, to rejoice together in our joys, and to survive the devastating pain we suffer.

Nancy & Jack
"Our hearty applause to each of the wonderful cast, and to Marcela and the production crew for an OUTSTANDING virtual presentation of The Fisherman’s Wife! A unique and memorable tale, very well written - a real TTT treat! We watched it from our easy chairs, but were remembering and pretending to be in chairs at Open Book! We are grateful to have been able to enjoy this fine performance."

"I LOVED IT. The acting was so good and the story compelling enough that I soon forgot we were remote. I was immersed in the story. You always work that magic in your live performances but this time you did it with even less—no props, remote. Amazing!!"
