From press release:
Love. Friendship. Secrets. Fruitful Productions is proud to present BLUE MOON GIRLS, a story of childhood friends and the choices they face when love comes between them. Written by Jessica Lea Fleming, BLUE MOON GIRLS plays July 5-13, 2013 at the Helen Gardiner Phelan Playhouse as part of the Toronto Fringe Festival. Tickets are available beginning June 17 via www.fringetoronto.com, by telephone at 416-966-1062 (ext.1), or at the door.
Julie and Sonya meet as teenagers in the small Métis -French town of Blue Moon, Ontario. Complications arise when they both fall in love with Christian, and sacrifices are made by all. Heartfelt and funny, BLUE MOON GIRLS asks: What is real love? …and perhaps more importantly: What does it cost?
“[Playwright Jessica Lea Fleming] is part of the next wave of Aboriginal artists representing a fresh voice in our diverse communities”.
~ Award-winning filmmaker and artist Keesic Douglas
