We deeply regret the decision to cancel BROWN WASP due to uncertainties around Hurricane Lee. We apologize for the inconvenience!
BROWN WASP is a one-woman play by Meah Martin
Starring Megan McArton, Directed by Kathy France
Presented by Caravan Theatre
Brown Wasp pulls you into the funny, self-deprecating world of Sarah St. John, a Canadian woman in the throes of an edgy inner journey through illness, healing and redemption.  Sarah, with husband in tow, travels to Manitou Springs, Saskatchewan, hoping for a cure in the spa’s restorative waters. Sarah’s reflections on the horrors of disease and her ravaged physical body are both wickedly funny and beautifully evocative.
Brown Wasp was the winner of the Canadian National Playwriting Competition award for a one-act play in 2000. Recently the play has been updated for a 2023 audience and is now touring Canada, to critical acclaim: “wonderful humour and deep wisdom” (Winnipeg Fringe Review), “heartwarming humanity and perfectly timed moments of hilarity”, (Chelsey Prince, Ottawa Review), Megan McArton is “seamless, stirring, a joy to behold”Rory Runnells, Winnipeg Free Press
