Real Estate
Jamie Williams & Karen Parker

One of the funniest plays I've seen in years, high school sex education was never like Karen Parker portrays it as "Emma", the zany real estate agent in Allan Harkin's play Real Estate now playing at the Port Stanley Festival Theatre.

The set design by Noel Wright is brilliant and a perfect back drop for this well-written play. Allana Harkin rivals Norm Foster in writing audacious, skillful and thought-provoking dialogue. Directed by Simon Joynes, it was brilliantly delivered by highly professional and skillful actors, making it very hard to stop laughing from the beginning to the end of the play.

All about mid-life crises, Jamie Williams was perfectly cast as the writer suffering from writer's block who just doesn't understand women - or himself, for that matter. But Second City veteran Karen Parker, as the novice Real Estate agent, takes him on a merry ride of presentation which includes his house, himself, defence against predators while lamenting her own mid-life crises reproductive woes. I can't tell you more on this or it will spoil the fun, but it's hilarious.

Rachel Jones does an excellent job of playing the straight laced estranged wife "Stella" to Jamie Williams. Hailing from the Shaw Festival, Bruce Davies as her new boyfriend "Ted" is just too perfect as an effeminate but straight rich white male - a lawyer selling a line of beauty products who is oh so willing to help his girl friend's ex-husband with his aches, pains and wrinkles.

Earning a spontaneous standing ovation and playing until September 19th, 2015, this production is a "must see" and the best one of the 2015 Season. As soon as I can stop laughing I will give it a two thumbs up!
