Sweet Ride

a play for five actors and two musicians

adapted for the stage by 

Reid Campbell and Laurel Darnell 

from the book Sweet Ride by Ann Barry

music by Reid Campbell

 Sweet Ride is a stage adaptation, with original songs, of the book 'Sweet Ride' by Ann Barry.  It is the true story of a wartime bicycle trip from Blockhouse Nova Scotia to Charlottetown PEI, taken during the summer of 1943, by four young women. It is a story that reveals the independence, confidence and grit of two sisters, their cousin and a friend.

These 11 songs are from the new play 'Sweet Ride' which received a 'Table Reading' sponsored by P.A.R.C, in the winter of 2023 followed by  a public reading!
