Reasons for trip

Last week my aunt and I saw this hilarious play at the Victoria Playhouse in Petrolia, Ontario.

The premise of the play is the relationship between a mother and daughter when said daughter returns home as an adult after leaving her husband. The mother has been divorced over 20 years – her husband ran away with the neighour’s wife from the farm across the road. The mother is a bee keeper and has a male student studying her bees. The daughter is a turkey farmer and her job is to retrieve semen from the male turkeys because they are too fat to expel it themselves. The daughter and the student get together and the mother and the farmer across the road get together and hilarity ensues.

No seat in the theatre is a bad seat and they are new purchases due to a recent update in the theatre. From the outside the building is a typical Victorian design and stands out in this Victorian oil town in southern Ontario. I love seeing the flag on the clock tower as I’m driving into town on Tile Yard Line from the south.

Although this play is only on for a couple of more days, there is a full slate of shows on this season and some especially for Canada’s 150th anniversary this year including a Speaker Series featuring well-known Canadians such as Margaret Trudeau.

The Seniors discount is only $1 off the price of the tickets however there is free parking in a lot across the road from the theatre.
