Screwball Comedy 2017, World Premiere, Norm Foster Comedy Festival

(Eliza-Jane Scott, Kevin Hare, Cosette Derome and Darren Keay, Screwball Comedy, 2017)


We’re celebrating our third season of the finest of Norm Foster’s comedies including (count ‘em) 2 World Premieres!

First up is a Foster Greatest Hit Wrong For Each Other – like a fine wine, Wrong For Each Other is Vintage Foster at his absolute best! The show runs from June 27 – July 13, 2018.

If you loved 2016’s Halfway There and last season’s Lunenburg, Foster's latest Maritime saga, Come Down From Up River, is guaranteed to delight!

Our final show of the summer is Foster’s second World Premiere – Renovations For Six. All hell breaks loose at the dinner party in this fast-paced comedy as secrets are revealed and cultures clash. You’ll never look at a paint chip again without laughing…or cringing!
