Messenger is a play by award winning Nova Scotia playwright Wendy Lill. Its world premiere production by HomeFirst Theatre and Eastern Front Theatre took place October 29-November 8, 2015 at Neptune’s Scotiabank Studio with support from the Open Spaces Program.
In 1990, Canada almost led the world on climate change. Messenger imagines how this goal got lost. Inspired by Ibsen’s Enemy of the People, the play follows two brothers: one the Prime Minister’s chief of staff, and the other a newly minted, idealistic cabinet minister. The stakes are heightened by strong family loyalties that are tested by the crisis that ensues when one brother refuses to back down from what he knows is right.
