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.
Many Hats Theatre Company takes the stage on Sept. 7, with shows running until Sept. 30. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m.
There will be two gala opening nights. The first on Sept. 7 with the traditional wine (from Play Estate Winery) and cheese reception following the performance. Then on Friday, Sept. 8 there will be a reception after the performance featuring craft brews from The Cannery Brewing Company.
Tickets can be bought at The Nest and Nectar or reserved by phoning 250-493-7275. For more information visit www.manyhatstheatre.com.
