It's the birthday of Laura Grace, a therapist who finds herself way out on the far ledge of the Great Resignation. To combat burnout and keep secrets from her past buried, she begins a creative writing project using her clients confidential disclosures as material. Lines between reality, sanity, ethics, love, and lust blur as Laura traverses deeper and deeper into the dark neighborhood of her imagination.

The Big Blue River features Gini Adams, Jim Cunningham, Sulia Altenberg, Derek Long, and Matt Wall, some of the Twin Cities' best actors. The show opens March 4 at the hip North Garden Theater on West 7th Street in St. Paul, across from Keg and Case and the Schmidt Brewery. It runs Wednesday through Sunday, until March 27th, all shows at 7pm. There's one Industry Night "pay-what-you-can" performance on Monday, March 14th at 7pm. Thursday shows end with a Q and A talk-back. Full bar and snacks available at the theatre.

The Big Blue River by Patrick Coyle is the debut production of Mariah Theatre Company, devoted to world premieres of award-winning new plays.  'Big Blue' won a prestigious reading slot by The Script Readers of London, affiliated with the Theatre Royal Stratford East, who read a new play every month during the pandemic via Zoom.  It was described as "very funny," "smart, "moving," "ace!" and "a clever drama in six genres" by the London audience in attendance at the reading.  We can't wait to see you back in the theatre for a powerful, post-pandemic play by award-winning playwright and filmmaker, Patrick Coyle!
