“Want to laugh until your sides ache? Want to see Canada’s most prolific playwright at the very top of his game? ‘Halfway There’ is Norm Foster at his most beguiling…” Gary Smith, Hamilton Spectator
“Halfway There is a truly special show with genuine laughter and love” Sam Tweedle, Kawartha NOW
“Halfway There was a hilarious experience that also tugged at your heartstings when it needed to.” Todd Vaughan, Lacombe Express
There’s no such thing as a secret in Stewiacke. Not when the gossips meet for coffee every day at the local diner. Vi, Rita, Mary Ellen, and Janine are all as close as can be, and they know everybody’s business. But when Sean, a heartbroken doctor, moves in to take a temporary job at the clinic, he tips the Maritime town off its axis.
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!
Written by Canada’s own Norm Foster, “Halfway There” is a feel-good theatrical experience that will keep you smiling long after you leave the theatre.
