  Lost, but not forgottenPDF files may take a moment to load

One day in 1995, Cathy Ostlere didn't get a phone call. She didn't hear any traumatic news, nor did she suffer or witness any sort of accident. To a stranger, her day would have seemed perfectly happy and quite insignificant -- but the simple lack of a phone call was Cathy's first indication that her brother had disappeared.

Theatre Calgary's upcoming production of Lost: A Memoir is a one-woman performance featuring the talent of actress Jan Alexandra Smith, adapted from Cathy's true to life novel of the same name.
