YPDG play examines family

“Alterations,” the fall show for Yellow Point Drama Group, follows one family as they adapt to the inevitable stages of life. A dramatic comedy, the play follows three generations of women, all living in the same home. Erica, a costume designer, is in the middle of it all, caught between the needs of her aging mother and her teenage daughter. Add in her husband, from whom she is recently separated and who still hopes for reconciliation, and you have the makings of a rich and complex play, generously laced with comedy.

“Alterations,” written by Leigh Curran, opens on October 6, with shows October 7, 13, 14, 20, 21 at 7:30 pm and a matinee on October 21 at 2:00 p.m., at Cedar Community Hall. The five-member cast includes YPDG veterans, Joanne Rowland, Maureen Molyneaux-Watt and Alan Watt, and newcomers, Katrina Basnett and Heather Haseltine. Tickets: $20 each night, at the door (cash or cheque). For reservations, call 250-245-7342. Online tickets at
