2016 - Halfway There

We are thrilled to be able to deliver world premiere plays by Canada’s most popular playwright, Norm Foster, every summer to our Niagara audiences.

 

The small town of Stewiacke, Nova Scotia is located exactly halfway between the equator and the North Pole. Into this town wanders Doctor Sean Merrit, newly dumped by his fiancée and looking to leave his troubles far behind. The first people he meets are four local women, each with issues of their own. What follows is a month of lessons learned for all, through hilarity, tears and the bonds of unshakeable friendship. Sugar and spice and everything nice…with a dash of Maritime salt! Halfway There is a feel good theatrical experience that will keep you smiling long after you leave the theatre.
