Join us for entertaining and insightful readings by Barrie actor Joy Thompson from the journals of Mary O’Brien, the mother of Shanty-Bay artist Lucius O’Brien (1832-1899). Lucius O’Brien was a painter of the Canadian landscape, a passionate, early advocate of the Canadian arts scene and a significant figure in the region. Joy Thompson has graced the stages on Broadway, the “Old Vic” in England, The Kennedy Centre, Sony Centre and major theatres across Canada. She performed in three productions at the Royal Alexandra, two seasons at Stratford and The Charlottetown Festivals, two international tours, as well as Grand Bend, MTC, and the Citadel in Edmonton just to name a few.
