Our King's Wharf theatre outing is back!
Once again we can return to the King’s Wharf Theatre in Penetanguishene! Our Club has arranged a limited number of tickets for the July 27 "capacity reduced" matinee for Buying the Farm—A Rural Romantic Comedy. Country wit meets city bluster in this fast-paced romantic comedy about the charms and challenges of maintaining the family farm.
Aging bachelor farmer Magnus Bjornson finds himself with mounting debt, some health concerns, and suburban neighbourhoods encroaching from every direction. Just when he's thinking about retirement, Brad, a young real estate agent, arrives at the farm determined to succeed where others have failed. It might be a done deal, except that Magnus' great-niece Esme is unwavering in her resolve that this family farm is NOT FOR SALE.
A love note to farming, this multi-generational comedy is also an insightful look at the plight of rural Canada. Don’t miss this hilarious new comedy about high hopes, last stands, skunks, and love among the chickens.
