Bravo, Bravo Lindsay!! Good Job!!

Last night I went and saw my cousin, Lindsay in a play called Candida. Here is a description of the play that I found on the web.

The play is set in the northeast suburbs of London in October, and tells the story of Candida, the wife of a first-rate clergyman named James Mavor Morell. Morell is a popular Christian Socialist Reverend in the Church of England, yet Candida is responsible for much of his success. When he married Candida, she brought along Eugene Marchbanks, a young poet who wants to rescue her from what he presumes to be a dull family life. Marchbanks is in love with Candida and believes she deserves something more than just complacency from her husband. Both men love her for different reasons, and she is attracted to them both for the different lifestyles they provide. Morell, sensing he is fighting a loosing battle, demands Marchbanks to leave at once, yet Candida undercuts her husband and instead invites him to stay st the house. Leaving the two alone together, Reverend Morell observes Candida and the poet growing closer to one another. The men fight over her, and in the end, Candida chooses the man who needs her the most, her husband, and not where her heart is, Marchbanks.

Lindsay played the Clergyman's secretary. She was fabulous and funny. She had on a dark wig and was dressed in victorian dress. She looked so different with the dark hair and eyebrows. For those of you who don't know my cousin is a red head. Lindsay did the British accent great and made me laugh.

This was Lindsay's 5th production with Long Beach City College. I am very proud of her. It was hard to believe that was my "little" cousin up there. She has worked hard and it shows. She is very talented and I cannot wait to see where God takes this talent and how He will use her. Good job, little cuz, keep up the good work. I love you.

Blog more later,
