Wingfield Lost and Found tackles well drilling with insightful humour
The much beloved Wingfield series returns to the Fredericton Playhouse with the latest instalment, Wingfield Lost and Found, with two showings on Saturday, November 21 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, November 22 at 2 p.m.
This insightful and hilarious show is set in the midst of a record drought. The search is on to locate a new well on Wingfield Farm, but along the way distractions abound, from a high-tech cattle drive, to a battle with yellowjackets, to a well driller who is all too happy to perforate the ground at forty dollars a foot.
Canadian actor Rod Beattie continues in his signature role as Walt, a performance that has brought him acting awards, rave reviews and sold-out shows across the country. Written by playwright Dan Needles and directed by Douglas Beattie, Wingfield Lost and Found tackles the prescient issue of well drilling with humour, warmth and understanding.
More than an environmental comedy, this show is a whimsical reminder that searching can turn up more than what is lost, and teach us the value of more than what is found.
Tickets for Wingfield Lost and Found are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office by calling 458-8344 or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
