A Comedy: Halfway There By Norm Foster

Performances May 23-June 8 at GPLT
Director: Wayne Ayling

“Dr. Sean Merrit wanders into the small town of Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, exactly halfway between the equator and the North Pole. Recently dumped by his fiancée, he’s looking for a new start and soon meets four local women, each with their own interesting life stories. Laughter, tears and the power of true friendship teach them a lot about themselves and each other. A feelgood theatre experience filled with incomparable Maritime wit and wisdom! 2 acts. 1m 4f….2016 “A warm-hearted play that is sure to delight longtime Foster fans, and for those new to Foster, this would be a great place to start.” — Stage Door”
