Cradle And All: (comedy) A mother's comedic journey to solve the mystery of the Mona Lisa. This show played to sold out houses at Neptune Theatre in Halifax, in February 2014.
With two small children, an accountant husband with OCD, an overbearing mother, and a performance artist brother who refuses to grow up, Carole, a former artist, wonders if she has made the right choices. She wants to paint again, but life keeps intervening. About to give up, she is visited by Leonardo da Vinci. He will help her paint again if she can resolve the mystery of the Mona Lisa.
