The Glace Bay Miner's Museum , a play by Wendy Lill, based on a novel by Sheldon Currie, opens March 7 and runs to the 16th. at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium at the Dalhousie Arts Centre, Halifax, NS.

This production is a co-operative effort by Neptune Theatre and the Manitoba Arts Centre, and in association with The Eastern Front Theatre Company.

The story, by Antigonish author Sheldon Currie, was originally adapted as a radia drama by Wendy Lill, starring Mary-Collin Chisholm. The film version, called Magaret's Museum, has won awards around the world.

The story is set in Cape Breton of the 40's, and is a tragic romance about Margaret MacNeil a poor runny-nosed girl who falls in love with a rebellious, bagpipe-playing giant of a man called Neil Currie.

"...as real as the coal, gritty, yet a warmly illuminating picture of a mining family," The Chronicle-Herald wrote. Box office: (800) 565-7345 or (902) 420-7070.
