Coffee Shop Confessions - A Play by Mary Aalgaard

Last Friday night, Matt and I went to the original play Coffee Shop Confessions, written by local playwright Mary Aalgaard.

Mary and I were introduced via the blog world and mutual friends, and we have since become friends. I missed out on the opportunity to go to the first two showings of Coffee Shop Confessions, so when they opened up ticket sales for 4 more encore performances, I jumped at the chance to buy Matt and I tickets.

The play, which took place at the Coco Moon coffee shop is about a group of people who work/frequent a local coffee shop and are all friends. The play explores their lives, and the triumphs and struggles they each go through. I laughed and laughed, and at points, I felt anger bubbling up inside me as well as tears for the struggles the characters were facing. It was like reading a book and watching a movie but even better, because it was happening 10 feet in front of me!

There are two more performances of Coffee Shop Confessions, this Thursday and Friday [April 19th/20th] at The Shante in Pillager. As of right now, there are still tickets left [$5/person] and the play starts at 6:30pm. It will fill up fast though, so go early to grab your seat.

I want to give a shout out to Mary for her first original full length play. I am so proud of you and the masterpiece you have created! It was so fun to watch you all, and to see your dream come to life. Keep on chasing your dreams, and I can't wait for the next play!

If you go see the play, I'd love to hear what you think!
