About the Show

Halfway There, Past Seasons, Foster Festival

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.

  • Director Patricia Vanstone has drawn superb ensemble acting from her diverse cast in Halfway There. The Foster Festival has now given high calibre productions of all three plays in its first season. If you have not already discovered the joys of Norm Foster, now is a good time to start.
