The Gingerbread Girl

Sharon Bajer
April 15 - May 3, 2020
A modern-day fairy tale for grown ups

All performances of this play have been cancelled.


Years of fruitless attempts to have a child have taken their toll on Marie and Joe’s marriage. They decide that they need a “reboot” – a year in a cabin in the woods, totally off the grid. No computers, no cell phones, no TV. When a witch shows up at their remote door and grants them their dearest wish, there’s a major catch – their longed-for baby is born…as a gingerbread cookie! Normal in (almost) every way -- apart from the occasional broken cookie limb or melted icing smile -- Ginger grows up too fast for her overprotective parents. Equal parts whimsical, funny and poignant, The Gingerbread Girl explores the very real challenges of family, expectations, love and loss.

This play was developed with the support of Manitoba Association of Playwrights.
