Listen to this story
Love, loss, family history and Scottish ancestry are at the heart of a play that opens Friday night in the Springer Theatre at the Thousand Islands Playhouse in Gananoque, Ontario. No Great Mischief is based on the novel by Alistair MacLeod. It's the story of two brothers, Calum and Alexander, who seek to reconcile their past.

Todd Moe spoke with Canadian actor R.H. Thomson, who plays Alexander MacDonald, in the show. He says it's a memory play that takes viewers from a squalid rooming house in Toronto to Cape Breton to the deep mines of Elliot Lake.
