Coming this September: The Year of Magical Thinking

by Joan Didion

In The Year of Magical Thinking Joan Didion talks about something nobody wants to talk about: the prospect of losing someone you love. With dry wit and deep empathy Didion explores her own experiences and articulates what she has found.

Joan McBride returns to Mount Tabor Playhouse this September to share this powerful one-woman show. Actor and Director for this production, she is ably supported by Assistant Director Melissa Paulson.

Tickets will go on sale at Books & Company in September, and can be purchased online now using the button below.

County Roads Theatre Company is a small group of mostly Prince Edward County Residents with a passion for telling important stories through small, independent, professional theatre productions.

In 2017 we presented The Belle of Amherst, a one-woman show by William Luce about the life of poet Emily Dickinson. The show, featuring Joan McBride as Emily and directed by Fred Robinson, ran for two weeks at the lovely Mount Tabor Playhouse.

Audiences loved the play, which prompted us to offer On A First Name Basis by Norm Foster in 2019. Joan McBride played the role of Lucy Hopperstaad, housekeeper to the very successful, but cantankerous, novelist David Kilbride, played by John Koensgen. This play was directed by Fred Robinson and entertained mostly full houses for the two week run.

In 2022 we presented Collected Stories by Donald Margulies. Directed by Fred Robinson, Joan McBride played the role of Ruth Steiner, a feisty professor and published author, and Melissa Paulson played the role of Lisa Morrison, a graduate student and aspiring author. Audiences loved this complex and clever play, and raved about the performances of the actors.
