The continuing and hilarious saga of Walt Wingfield returns to the Fergus Grand Theatre on May 28 and 29.
Wingfield’s Inferno is the sixth play starring Rod Beattie as a host of memorable characters living on the 7th Line of Persephone Township.
The play is written by Dan Needles, a former Dufferin County Newspaper editor, who takes Wingfield from a prosperous Bay Street firm to the countryside. Wingfield’s trials and struggles to farm mingle with local politics and a host of odd situations.
The show is directed by Douglas Beatty, Rod’s brother. The Wingfield shows have played all over North America to huge acclaim.
In this show, a devastating fire at the Orange Hall in Larkspur leaves it a smouldering ruin, and Walt Wingfield leads the charge to get it rebuilt, but lighting a fire under his fellow committee members proves a daunting task. Is it courage they lack or is the devil in the details?
Tickets are $30; for seniors and there are group sales of 10 or more $27.
Tickets are available at the Fergus Grand Theatre box officer or from Ralph Basset Associates Inc. at 519-843-4852 or order online at www.ralphbasset.com.
