The Harbourfront Players in:
by Neil Simon

Directed by Marlane O’Brien


At a large, tastefully-appointed Sneden’s Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just “accidentally” shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of FARCE. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer Ken and Ken’s wife, Chris, must get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and mis-communications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

While this play is a farce, there are mature themes and occasional off-colour language. Not recommended for small children. “PG13” – parents use discretion.
