The Fredericton Playhouse presents Wingfield Lost and Found with two showings on Saturday, November 21st at 7:30 pm and Sunday, November 22nd at 2 pm. Tickets are Regular $36, Member $32, and Under 19 $18.
Walt Wingfield, city stockbroker turned farmer, returns to the Playhouse stage with more hilarious tales in the latest Wingfield Farm play.
In the midst of a record drought wells on the Seventh Line are drying up. The farm needs a new well, but of course it’s not as simple as drilling a hole. A search to locate a new well on Wingfield Farm ensues, but distractions abound: a high-tech cattle drive, a battle with yellow jackets, a feud with a red-tailed hawk, an eccentric line-up of water witches, and a well driller who is only too happy to perforate the ground at forty dollars a foot. Is it the end of farming for Walt and Maggie, or can the precious liquid be found?
More than an environmental comedy Wingfield Lost and Found is a whimsical reminder that searching can turn up more than what is lost and teach us the value of more than what is found. Rod Beattie has delighted us for years as Walt (among other characters) and Lost and Found promises even more laughs.
