Flying On Her Own (Script)

Featuring the songs of Rita MacNeil

“Rita, we hardly knew you. Didn’t know how far you had to fall before you climbed right back to the top…. It is an inspiring story… endearing and engaging.” – Halifax Daily News

I was thrilled when Playwrights Canada Press decided to publish my play, Flying On Her Own, based on the life of Rita MacNeil. To date it is the only one of my plays that has been published as a stand alone script.

I have always been a fan of Alex Colville, who, like me, grew up in Amherst and graduated from Mount Allison University. I was very happy when the publisher suggested using his work for the cover. I think this painting is perfect and as soon as I saw it I hoped that people would judge my book by its cover. 🙂

You can read more about the play here.


After ten years Playwrights Canada Press discontinued the script so I have the only remaining copies. You can order directly from me at charlierhindress[at]hotmail[dot]com. For $20 I will mail the script anywhere in Canada. Payment can be by cheque or e-transfer. Please message me for more information.
