Character Bio

Older Anne Shirley photo
Anne explains in an early scene, “I longed to write once; now I just do it to work everything else out”. Despite having become a well published author and aspiring play-wright, professional success seems to have brought her little true happiness. She has lost Gilbert, the love of her life during the war and she is haunted even more by the worry that her only son has yet to return from overseas. In the shadow of a past where her she has romanticized the lives of her own parents, Anne struggles to maintain the adolescent ideals and values instilled in her during her formative years growing up through the kindness of Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert.

Anne’s lack of solid roots and the memory of those troubled early years where she was abandoned by her father after the death of her mother, affect her even more as an adult than as a child. Anne grapples with a grown-up family, grandchildren and the fear that her adopted son may have disappeared in the aftermath of the war.

Trying to occupy herself with a distraction, she agrees to write a play for her friend, theatre impresario Gene Armstrong. In the process of ‘working everything out’ she delves into memories that provide the basis for a writing a profound and moving play; one that also allows her to view her life from a different perspective.
