Bridging the border communities of
Vermont and Quebec through
Arts and Entertainment.
A veteran cast of actors anchor a heartfelt, humorous drama as Borderline Players present The Tin Woman by Sean Grennan, on stage at the Haskell Opera House October 21, 22, 23 and 28, 29, 30.
Reeling in the wake of an unexpected heart transplant, Joy finds herself drawn to contact the donor’s family. A tempestuous meeting ensues resulting in a roller coaster of tears, laughter, and healing. An intimate and poignant play, The Tin Woman explores the power of human connection.
The Tin Woman premiered in 2014 at Peninsula Players Theatre in Wisconsin and has been described as "a mature, deftly crafted and accomplished work" (Florida Onstage) and "full of laughter and light, even at the darkest moments" (Green Bay Press Gazette).
