TEN LOST YEARS
November 1-3 & 7-10, 2018, 8pm
November 4, 2pm
The Livery, Goderich

Ten Lost Years brings to the Livery stage the struggles that our parents, grandparents and great grandparents had to endure through the challenging years of the Great Canadian Depression (1929-1939). 

The scenes in this play will at times make you want to cry, others will make you laugh out loud, and some will astonish you with the creative resilience and ingenuity of people existing in a human tragedy not of their own making. 

This is an uplifting adventure about suffering, bravery and moral triumph during the hardest of times. Ten Lost Years is directed by Duncan McGregor.
