Do yourself a favour and get tickets to this brand new Norm Foster play. I loved it - and so did the others we went with.....But seriously, don't miss this play. Each of the 5 actors is superbly cast and they play off each other perfectly. A 10 out of 10 hit!
Norm Foster & team have successfully pulled off another excellent play. Hilda’s Yard was so very funny. Thanks for a very entertaining afternoon
Very funny play; loved the show. Great theatre; not a bad seat in the house. I predict the Foster Festival will join The Shaw Festival & The Stratford Festival as a major attraction in Ontario.
"Come Down From the River" has to be my favorite Norm Foster play to date. It is like peeling an onion as it addresses layers of topics such as homosexuality, homophobia, racism, misogany, orphanism, missed opportunities, teen pregnancy, abandonment, family breakups, unfaithfullness, death and yet all interjected with so much mirth. This is a very human play with a very realistic plot and a beautiful message exposed once the onion is all peeled.
If you haven't been to The Foster Festival yet, now is the time to go! Last night's world premiere of Halfway There was incredible!
Wonderful show , great actors in a small but intimate environment. we will be back to enjoy another evening with you. Staff were very helpful also.
If there is one thing that really disappoints me about going to the Norm Foster Festival is the simple fact that more people don't take advantage of such a great event.
We saw Screwball Comedy tonight and loved it! So much talent on stage and behind the scenes. We'll definitely be getting tickets for the remaining shows of the season. Highly recommend!
An excellent show, stage set, lighting, and sound were all beautiful. It was amazing to see Norm Foster and Patricia Vanstone in this play again. Well worth the drive from Toronto.
This is the second year that we have visited the First Ontario Performing Arts Centre to see a play at the Foster Festival. Norm Foster's plays are funny and sweet, and you always come away feeling good.
