Primordial Soup Theatre

The Downs

Life before washing machines and phones. Before television and internet. In a lot of ways, life was much simpler. Although, the time spent with Millie Johnson will leave you wondering if simpler is the best term to use. Millie spins tales of laughter that come from using wringer washers and milking cows by hand; when working hard had a whole different meaning and homemade bread was served at every meal.

          Careful, Millie may talk your ear off. Millie Johnson takes us back to 1940s farm life in northern New Brunswick with all the thrills and chills that came along with washin’ laundry by hand. When workin’ hard had a whole different meanin’ and homemade bread and a cup of tea warmed your heart.

                                                        A mother dies, mystery corrupts and truths fester. A mother’s death, a father’s sin, a clown who somehow figures in. A sister’s guilt, a brother’s pain, will they ever speak again? Forgotten memories, warped by time, truths unspoken, not to find. Deceptions tear, and lies divide. Family secrets cannot hide.
