Mrs CharlesIn Spring 2014, we bring you Mrs. Charles, a world premiere historical romance from Ruth Virkus*, directed by Jimmy LeDuc.

In 1878, Charles and Walter are in love, but the harsh reality of Philadelphia society keeps them from ever truly making a life together. When Walter is offered the chance to open a milling concern in Minneapolis, they hatch an audacious plan: arrive there as Walter and Charlotte Kenzie.

An unlikely marriage set against the backdrop of early Minneapolis society, Mrs. Charles is about what we’re willing to give up, what we’re willing to fight for, and what is really worth it in the end.

As a companion piece, Freshwater Theatre will present Archival Revival, bringing together performers of all kinds to create works based on archived articles from the Minneapolis newspapers of the 1800′s, as we look back on our city’s beginnings.

Both shows run at Nimbus Theatre May 3-17, 2014!
