The Light in the Piazza

The Light In the Piazza is a romantic boy-meets-girl tale that is running throughout May at the Theatre Calgary. Set in Italy in 1953, Clara happens to meet a handsome stranger and their chance meeting grows into true love. Things get complicated when Clara's mother, needs to decide whether or not to share a secret with her that could influence the outcome of the young couple's romantic relationship. We suggest you bring mom along to this show for Mother's Day because, at the heart of the play, is a mother who does everything she can for her daughter.
