Lynn van Deursen plays four characters in 'I

Award winning one-woman play comes to Nelson

"I, Claudia" is a poignant look at life's struggles as seen through the eyes of four delightful characters.

A one-woman play starring Kaslo actor Lynn van Deursen will take the stage at L.V. Rogers high school this Friday, June 14.

The show called I, Claudia is a poignant look at life’s struggles as seen through the eyes of four delightful characters, especially those of 13-year-old Claudia.

Claudia, still reeling from her parent’s divorce, has a father getting re-married, a science fair project coming due, and is in the physical and emotional throes of puberty when she decides to take refuge in the basement of her school.

There she is visited by some important adults in her life, including her grandfather, her father’s new girlfriend and the school custodian, who all help shed light on her situation.

The four characters are brought to life with the help of four distinctive masks beautifully hand crafted by Robin Wiltse.

This charming one act play blends the humorous and the painful aspects of life’s struggles with authentic language expertly written by Kristen Thomson. The show was the 2001 winner of the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Best New Play.

I, Claudia is rated PG13. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 at the door.

There will also be a performance at Silverton Gallery on Saturday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m.
