Dear Nellie,
My husband and I have been fighting for a long time and are staying t ogether for the kids.
I want to leave him but am worried that this is not the right time of year to go. What do
you th ink?
- Unhappy
Dear Unhappy,
No time will be the right time for the kids t o see their parents separate however you have
to do what is best for you and in the long run the ch ildren as well. Staying together for
the children is not an acceptable reason. Children, n o matter how young, can feel the
tension between arguin g parents and th is can cause a lot of emotional stress on the children and in fact can affect their own relationships later in life. If you have decided that
you are going to leave and end the marriage, I would wait until after Christmas to do so IF
AND ONLY IF there is absolutely no ph ysical, mental or verbal abuse. The children do n ot
need to associate the holidays with the end of their parents’marriage. Take the time to
explain thin gs to them and make it as less stressful as possible for them. Make sure they
know it is n ot their fault and that they are very important t o both you and you r husband.
You will need support from frien ds and family during this difficult time. Don’t be afraid t o
ask for it. Stay strong.
Dear Nellie,
I want t o buy a new 47 inch TV for our bedroom but my husband thinks that is t oo much
money to s pend on one gift. Please help!
- Concerned Shopper
Dear Concerned Shopper,
In my opinion, a 47 inch TV is far too big for any normal sized bedroom. Wh y
not compromise? Get a 32 inch TV and the money you save can go t oward something
else. He said it was too much money for “one” gift. Get two gifts instead! Enjoy your

'Play'ful Thoughts by Kim Braun
Last weekend Theatre Antigonish featured the deep, mov ing piece 'Anna K', based on the Tolstoy
book Anna Karenin. For those lucky enough to attend, it was certainly another reason to f or all of
us to f eel fortunate that we hav e such a strong artistic community and a top notch theatre to attend
in Antigonish.
Bef ore attending the play I was told that the set was a simple one and was not sure what to expect.
Being a f an of Ian Py gott's set design, I was curious to see the set and how it related to the story.
Walking into the theatre I saw a set that was a blank canv as, stark and dark, not unlike the way
Russian landscapes are portrayed in literature and film. Two simple dark chairs against the back
walls of the stage as props, blended into the dark paint let us know that they were extraneous.
When the cast walked on stage to set the scene for the play, they became both the narrators and
the f ormation of a train f oreshadowing the end of the story. I was very pleased to discov er that the
actors themselves would be the set. After all, rooms and settings are certainly not important to both
the story of Anna K or Tolstoy 's work. The simple set provided no distractions, letting us f ocus
solely on the complex relationships and text, something I appreciated.
We were presented with a tight and well-cast group of young actors along with the additional talented performances of Carol-Anne MacKenzie and Phillip Cooper as Alexei Karenin, Anna's husband. Knowing that Christina Appleby was so successf ul last season in a comedic role, it was a
pleasant, but not a surprising sight to see her fully embrace the role of such a complicated, tortured
character as Anna. Visitor to the area, Gharrett Paon certainly filled his role of the dashing Count
Vronsky and I f elt both the dev otion and pain he suffered in his lov e f or Anna. The play called for a
handsome, charismatic y oung man capable of turning Anna away from her husband and he f illed
this role well. His f inal heart wrenching cry resonated through the audience.
Emily Peskett played duo roles
successfully. I hadn't read the cast
list beforehand and was theref ore
able to enjoy the performance of
each character separately and unknowingly.
There were many f amiliar f aces
from last y ear's Theatre Antigonish
season. Eric Scarffe and Tia Andrini were believ able as the y oung
innocent lov ers. Their dramatic (yet
more traditional) relationship runs
parallel to the tortured relationships
of both Anna K and her brothers
marriage of lov e and inf idelity. All
the couples play ed their parts well
and it was interesting to see the
three different relationships that
Tolstoy featured side by side in this
Hav ing worked in stage management with Ed Thomason, it is not
surprising that he chose a piece
that was as deep as this one, or as affecting. The cast would have been f ully versed on the themes
of the nov el and will certainly have come onto the stage with a greater knowledge of Tolstoy and
his work. The 'choreography' needed with such a large cast must hav e been daunting, but it certainly did not appear that way. It flowed beautifully with the actors mov ing seamlessly around the
stage and simple set.
The f inal dramatic end for Anna had the cast coming full circle as a group, f orming the train. It was
terrifying and yet satisfying to reach an end that seemed so inevitable. In the f inal scene, Ed Thomason presented us with a v ery mov ing picture, the hopeful y oung couple with their baby, ready to
f ace a f uture together and looking so much like that young couple portrayed so hopef ully in a manger this coming season.
