A new play called Pry It From My Cold Dead Hands, from Windsor-based writer Edele Winnie, will have its world premiere in February at The Shadowbox Theatre.

Producers call it a zany comedy, a mystery, and a story of personal empowerment wrapped in one unique package.

Starring Rebecca S. Mickle, Stephanie Cragg, Cindy Pastorius, Colin Zorzit, Greg Girty, and Luke Boughner, its the story of an introverted young woman who finds herself in possession of a life-changing hatbox.

Winnies play, directed by Michael OReilly and Fay Lynn, was the winner of the 2019 Windsor-Essex Playwriting Contest.

The script was instantaneously engaging, said OReilly. It made me think of a professional improv troupe, where everyone is saying yes to every suggestion, which propels the story forward. Every wacky opportunity is taken.

The production runs Feb. 7, 8, 13, 14, and 15 at The Shadowbox Theatre on Howard Avenue. All shows start at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25. Theyre available in advance at postproductionswindsor.ca. If youre paying cash, you can also buy them at the door while they last.
