MCC play explores couple's journey of 'rediscovery, redemptive power of love'

'The Wonder of It All offers cleverness, warmth and timeless wisdom about love and marriage, leaving a strong impression on audiences,' MCC executive director says

Promising a night of laughter and heartwarming moments, the Midland Culture Centre features a special two-night engagement of The Wonder of It All later this month.

The play features Broadway sensation Monique Lund, known for her role in Mamma Mia, joining forces with her real-life husband, playwright Mark Weatherley on the MCC stage May 29 and 30.

In this intimate comedic production, Lund and Weatherley portray Charmaine and Kingsley, a couple whose seemingly  perfect marriage is thrown into disarray when a surprise from their past threatens their future.

As they navigate the twists and turns of love and fidelity after 25 years together, “audiences will be captivated by the couple's journey of rediscovery and the redemptive power of love,” a release notes.

Written by Weatherley, whose well-known for his work in Stratford, The Wonder of It All features an abundance of wit, charm and keen insights into the complexities of relationships, according to a release.

Now, area residents will get a chance to see this “beloved comedy firsthand, brought to life by two extraordinary talents.”

"We're delighted to have Monique Lund and Mark Weatherley grace our stage for what is bound to be an evening to  remember," MCC executive director Dan Broome says.

The Wonder of It All offers cleverness, warmth and timeless wisdom about love and marriage, leaving a strong impression on audiences."
