Alice

Lynne Karey-McKenna reflecting on her role as Kate's mother, Alice:

 

Alice
For Mother’s Day, when my son was about 15, he gave me a coffee mug which he had painted on: “let my love of mom be x, then  (2x2 -3x)/x -3-10, Let mom be y  then y > or equal to 0, y2-y-1=0, y=(1+Square root 5)/2 “ My dogs are named Telemachus Rhade and RevBem, named by my children. So I can certainly understand, appreciate and even rejoice in the relationships and time dilemmas’ of Alice and Kate, and all the little things that add up to make our little lives a little less little.  This is my second opportunity to do a Mighton play (I was Clara in Half-Life for Deep Cove Players) and I am so grateful to Sharon, the cast, crew, my family and John Mighton for allowing me to share this moment of time with you.

Meet Rina Varley as Kate:

Rina is thrilled to be playing Kate, a strong, independent role model with a brilliant mind and a real disease.  Rina herself manages a mental disorder.  "Playing Kate gives me a chance to show that the combination of environmental factors and genetics garner very different outcomes."  Read up on Rina's real-life journey at www.gadtobealive.com

What happens when you have a nonlinear mind, but you are trapped in a linear world?
