Cougar Annie Tales SUNDAY MARCH 15TH 7:45PM Cougar Annie Tales is the story of Ada Annie Jordan who settled in the Clayoquot coastal rainforest in 1915. She had 11 children, four husbands, was famous for trapping and killing cougars, ran a general store and post office from her home, and had a mail-order garden nursery. Katrina Kadoski lived in Clayoquot Sound for three years caretaking Cougar Annie’s garden and immersing herself in the folklore surrounding the legendary pioneer-settler. Drawing upon many sources, including Annie’s family, Cougar Annie Tales uses dramatic narrative, images, letters, and original songs to celebrate the unconventional life of one of B.C.’s most colourful characters. Advance tickets are $15 and can be purchased in person or over the phone at 778-351-0178. Doors at 7:15pm.
