Artichoke (1980)
The third show of ACT’s 16th season (our 105th mainstage production) is Artichoke by Joanna McClelland Glass. The play is set in the Canadian plains, the playwright’s home for the first twenty years of her life, and IS a charming story of hope, love for the rural‘ life, and homespun wisdom as urban and rural lifestyles collide.
