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 a renowned writer and his son, who has followed in his father's footsteps, perhaps less successfully. As they sit together and examine their relationship, secrets are revealed and old wounds are reopened. Full of compassion and Foster's trademark Humour with Heart, The Writer explores the parent child connection with touching clarity as the paternal care-giver becomes the cared for.
