ALL OF YOU MINE

Wed 8 Jan - Sat 15 Feb, 1997

All of You Mine is both family drama and mystery set in a small northern village, convincingly human, humorous and sharply observed. For the Cade family there is a guilty secret and a buried truth about the devastating pit accident back in 1984. The old pit is now a flourishing garden centre, and there are flowers over the slurry. But the bitter rift amongst the Cades has never been healed, and as this Sunday's Memorial brings estranged daughter Verna back home to face her mother Cissy for the first time in twelve years, old antagonisms are brought to blazing life.

'Simon Usher's production is centred upon Anne Carroll's strong, wonderfully controlled performance as materfamilias Cissy Cade, orchestrating events with a hardened but fundamentally warm heart from her backyard throne. Marion Bailey and Roy North provide sterling support, and Andrew Dunn has a single moment of ragged glory in a tortured speech about Earl's own grief and guilt.'
