Theatre Newfoundland Labrador’s “Tempting Providence” on Provincial Tour
by Keith and Heather Nicol
This is a big year for Theatre Newfoundland Labrador’s “Tempting Providence” as it celebrates 10 years of performances around the world. “Tempting Providence” tells the story of Myra Bennett, a dedicated nurse who practiced on the Northern Peninsula. I recently got a chance to speak to Gaylene Buckle, Theatre Newfoundland Labrador’s general manager. “When we developed this play we purposely created it so that it could be performed in a variety of “stages” around the province, from church basements to school gyms. Now 10 years later we are doing just that with a provincial tour that will see the play performed in over 70 locations.” Gaylene told us.
