Joan Finnigan was controversial, outspoken, sometimes outrageous, and always a keen listener and gifted writer. She wrote 28 books and won an Etrog (best Canadian film) in 1969 for The Best Damned Fiddler from Calabogie to Kaladar. Now Stone Fence Theatre is bringing her amazing life and works to the stage an a new musical: I Come from the Valley! Tales and Times of Joan Finnigan.

In fall, there will be performances in Westmeath, Almonte, Rankin (with supper), Shawville, Killaloe, Renfrew (with supper), Rankin (with supper),  Deep River and Ottawa, all places that Joan knew and loved.
