Monique Lund and Mark Weatherley star in 
The Wonder of it All

As part of its Harbour Highlights series, Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside presents The Wonder Of It All, a comic misadventure for modern lovers by Mark Weatherley, September 15–17.

If marriage is the right to annoy one special person for the rest of your life, then Charmaine and Kingsley have the perfect marriage. That is until a surprise from their past meddles with the certainty of their future. But after 25 years is it too late for them to rediscover the redemptive power of love?

Full of humour and heart, The Wonder Of It All is a witty and touching comedy. Written in a similar vein to the comedies of playwrights Neil Simon and Norm Foster, Canadian playwright Mark Weatherley originally wrote The Wonder Of It All for Stratford Festival Ontario. 

Directed by Canadian actress Seana McKenna, The Wonder Of It All stars real-life married couple, Mark Weatherley and Monique Lund, both of whom have a varied career on stage and screen, including 12 seasons at The Charlottetown Festival.

She also played Lilli Vanessi/Kate in Kiss Me, Kate, directed by Tony award winner John Doyle at The Stratford Festival. In 2017, Monique won the Brian MacDonald Award for emerging directors at The Stratford Festival Guthrie Awards.
