Following last year’s Jewel by Joan MacLeod, and GTA tour of TheForest For the Trees with Arts in the Park, Shotgun Juliet returnswith Daniel MacIvor’s A Beautiful View June 11-22 at the alumnaeAlumnae Theatre as a Pride Toronto Community event.
A Beautiful View is the story of a serendipitous relationshipbetween two women. After a series of random meetings, they areswept into a lifelong friendship unlike either of them had before,or will have again. But no relationship is a fairy tale—or is it?Will they transcend society’s labels, or will they be ripped apartby their fears? Not quite. A Beautiful View is a masterpiece invaguery, hilariously commenting on the way we see ourselves becauseof other people, and bravely allowing regular people to be ourheroes.
