The Cooney Papers
November 3 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm$40
Charles and Betsy Cooney settled at Tranquille in 1868 with their two year old daughter Katherine. Together they forged an empire on the shores of Kamloops Lake. Over their lives they built Canada’s largest horse herd, developed one of the finest ranches in BC, introduced BC apples to the Ontario market, and were the life of the community. Countless parties were held at the Cooney Ranch over the years.
The Cooney Papers chronicles the lives of Charles and Betsy from each of their births to the death of Charles in 1917. This innovative production combines video and live acting in front of a 36 foot curved screen set in front of the loading docks in the old Tranquille Laundry. This is a family friendly show.
