Why the title Marion Bridge? Marion Bridge, Scottish Gaelic name Drochaid Mhira, is a place – a small village in the Cape Breton area of Nova Scotia. As the play proceeds, it becomes obvious why the playwright, Daniel MacIvor, chose to give the play this name. This is the story of 3 sisters who are together again in their family home. You will laugh, even weep as you are carried along with the disruption in their lives which brings them home to deal with their Mother’s terminal illness and eventual passing. But in amongst death can be life, and for them all, another door opens which gives them a hope and a reason to pull together.
