Many Hats Theatre presents Rope’s End

Tickets are now on sale for the Many Hats Theatre Company production of award-winning Canadian playwright Douglas Bowie’s Rope’s End which opens on March 31.

The central notion of Rope’s End is that somewhere long gone on the road not taken, lingering in some idealized, unreliable corner of memory, is the perfect person for each of us. A hopeless romantic fantasy perhaps, but a pretty universal one.

The story begins with Toby Boone alone in a drab room, talking to himself. He’s reached the end of his rope – figuratively – and perhaps literally, because he’s trying to tie an ominous-looking loop in a length of rope. The possibility of suicide looms in the air. But he happens across a photo – the love of his life.

Maybe she can somehow rescue him, change everything, if he can just get up his nerve to contact her.

There’s only one small problem. He’s let 31 years go by. He last saw her, fleetingly, at summer camp when they were 13. And in 31 years, things change. What if she doesn’t remember him? Even worse, what if she does?

Rope’s End is the second show in Many Hat’s fourth season and opening night audience members are invited to meet the cast and crew at an informal reception immediately following the show.

Rope’s End opens on the Cannery Stage in the Cannery Trade Centre 1475 Fairview Road, Penticton on March 31 and runs until April 23. Shows are Thursday, Friday, Saturday evenings at 8:00PM with Sunday matinees at 2:00PM.

Tickets for Rope’s End are $19 ($17 Students and Seniors—HST included) and are available at the Wine Country Visitor’s Centre at Railway and Eckhardt in Penticton or may be ordered by phone at 250-493-4055.

Make it an evening to remember with dinner at Penticton’s newest fine dining spot The Opus Bistro, right next door to the theatre before the show! For reservations and more information call 778-476-5856
