by Norm Foster - World Premiere!
The first of two world premieres in our 2019 season and Norm Foster's 60th play, The Writer tells the story of Donald Wellner a renowned playwright and his son Blake - a travel writer with commitment issues. Full of Foster's trademark Humour with Heart, The Writer explores this delightfully complex bond between Father and Son with touching clarity and a surprise ending that will leave you breathless!

I'm excited about the two brand new plays I am working on for the new 2019 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.
