Ralph + Lina is a rough and tumble romance following the struggles of two Italian lovers in the face of war, immigration and old age. Real life husband and wife Dan Watson and Christina Serra take the stage, directed by award-winning artist Michele Smith, to tell the very Canadian story of Serra’s grandparents and their struggle to make a better life together in a new country.
With 4 Dora Mavor Moore Nominations (including Outstanding Production, New Play, Ensemble and Female Performance) and sold-out performances across Canada, this acrobatic comedy has proven an instant favorite with audiences everywhere.
After sold out performances in Whitehorse, Toronto, Haliburton, Peterborough, Kingston, Burlington, St Catharines, North Bay, Milton and Huntsville Ralph + Lina will make a 3 city Ontario tour of Parry Sound, London and Kitchener/Waterloo in Spring 2016!
