World Premiere by Norm Foster

Shaver Bennett has lived a rather solitary life as a logger in the woods of northern New Brunswick. One day he arrives at the doorstep of his estranged sister’s daughter, whom he hasn’t seen in 20 years. The niece, Bonnie Doyle and her wife Liv Arsenault welcome him into their lives in this sweetly moving tale. Set in Saint John, New Brunswick, Come Down From Up River explores family and forgiveness with a healthy dose of laughter sprinkled with tears. If you loved 2016’s Halfway There and last season’s Lunenburg, this latest Maritime saga from Norm Foster is guaranteed to delight!

  • I'm excited about the two brand new plays I am working on for the new 2018 season. They are as different as night and day and yet I believe they will both still touch the funny bone and the heart of our audience.
    - Norm Foster, Playwright
