This year’s one-act play festival will involve some special guests – members of Galiano Players, here to perform Norm Foster’s delightful comedy My Narrator, directed by former Gabriolan Sonia Baker.

For Gabriola Players, Jean Wyenberg is directing Whisking Eggs by Jackie Lines. This farcical play answers that age-old question: What would happen if a runaway vicar’s wife moved in with a dominatrix?

Unfortunately our guests from Galiano won’t be able to stay the entire weekend, so the bill for the Sunday matinee will be Whisking Eggs and and encore performance of Lesley Hazeldine’s Living in Paradise.

SCHEDULE:

Friday, March 15th, 7pm – Whisking Eggs & My Narrator
Saturday, March 16th, 2pm & 7pm – Whisking Eggs & My Narrator
Sunday, March 17th, 2pm – Whisking Eggs & Living in Paradise

My Narratorby Norm Foster
Imagine what would happen if that little voice inside your head—the one that tells you how to behave and what choices to make—suddenly took on a life of its own? For Lacy and Miles, love is what happens, and with hilarious results.

Whisking Eggsby Jackie Lines
Miss Behave, a menopausal dominatrix, unexpectedly finds that her new lodger is the Vicar’s wife who does not believe in God. Linda is having imaginary conversations and the eccentric and outrageous Lady CS is threatening to reveal all. A hilarious fast paced comedy with mild adult references.

Living in Paradiseby Lesley Hazeldine *Sunday performance ONLY
Living in Paradise was written by and stars Gabriola’s own Lesley Hazeldine as Maggie, with Charlie Cheffins as her husband Stew. It is a very funny look at a recently-retired couple living on Gabriola Island. It covers their arrival and initial enchantment with Gabriola’s charms, and then jumps forward ten years to reveal how they are coping with Island life. Nothing is sacred as the play touches on a variety of Island concerns. Gabriolans will recognize themselves in many, if not all, of the situations that the couple confronts.
