Opening night set for Many Hats Theatre

Penticton theatre company ready for the opening night of Real Estate

Many Hats Theatre Company is set to open their latest production, Real Estate, a romantic comedy by Canadian playwright Allana Harkin.

The play follows Joel, a mystery novelist experiencing writer’s block. He retreats to the small-town family home that his father built, but the house needs to be sold and fast.

Enter Emma-an incredibly determined realtor-who decides that Joel is as much of a “fixer-upper” as the house he lives in. With the addition of Joel’s soon-to-be-ex looking to get divorce papers signed and her boyfriend in tow, Emma focuses all her considerable energy into developing the curb appeal of the house-as well as its inhabitant.
