"Buying the Moose" by London playwright Michael G. Wilmot is about a hilarious encounter
gone wrong, an ingenious snapshot into the lives of a sometimes dysfunctional couple
too proud, or too shocked, in the end, to say I'm sorry. There is always two sides
for every story, and guest director Matt Gorman managed to deliver both versions
in perfect harmony, making this comedy a most enjoyable, entertaining, overnight success.
Packed with outrageous one-liners that kept the audience busy laughing, and stellar
performances by Darryl Pring (Rob), who wasn't doing anything wrong, Caitlin Driscoll
(Betty), who is quick to jump to conclusions, Meredith Zwicker (Cheryl), a woman
that will listen, and pour the wine, and Marty Burt (Greg), the brother who came
to help, and drink beer. This show as an example, will prove beyond a shadow of doubt
that the weaker sex still has, and always will, have control in any relationship.
Joshua Quinlan did an outstanding job on producing a truly distinctive set design for
this production. Credit goes to Karen Crichton for the lighting design, Bradley Dunn
as stage manager, Grace Battan as assistant stage manager, and a special thanks goes
out to Port Stanley's Russell House as show sponsor.
"Buying the Moose" runs from July 5th to July 22nd, 2017, and it's the show that
you will want to remember the next time you find your partner in an awkward position!
