The Bush-Ladies: In Their Own Words is adapted from the writings of Susanna Moodie, Catherine Parr Traill, Anne Langton, and Anna Jameson. In the 1830s, these four well-born, highly-educated British women came to Canada?and the accounts of their lives have made them the First Ladies of Canadian literature. In this clever play, Molly Thom uses the Bush-Ladies' own words to illuminate the immigrant experience. It is a spirited and dramatic romp through a vivid era in our history.
