A Laugh-A-Minute Comedy

July 3 to July 21, 2024

There’s no such thing as a secret in Stewiacke, Nova Scotia – especially when four female best friends meet for coffee every day at the local diner to share gossip, romance, bawdy tales, and the true meaning of life.

When Sean, a heartbroken doctor from Toronto, takes a temporary job at the clinic and becomes interested in local waitress Janine, the Maritime town that’s best known for being the halfway point between the Equator and North Pole is tipped off its axis. What follows is a month of lessons learned for all, through hilarity, tears, and the unshakeable bonds of friendship.

Norm Foster, Canada’s favourite playwright, has another hit on his hands with his raucously funny comedy about the messiness of love.  

Recommended for ages 13 and up.
