Festival entry staged by Asparagus theatre group

The comedy follows a number of odd occurences in a sleepy town.

Asparagus Community Theatre will host its spring Production and Okanagan Zone Festival Entry, Sadie Flynn Comes to Big Oak, a comedy written by renowned Canadian playwright Norm Foster, this month.

The play will run from May 1 to 4 and May 8 to 11, all performances at 7:30 p.m.

Foster’s comedy begins when his play’s lead character, Sadie Flynn (played by Jeunesse Pearson), is released from prison after serving time for murdering her husband and arrives in the sleepy town of Big Oak.

The play takes place in Millie’s Cabin, a small café and the hub of the rural community of Big Oak.

Hilarity and intrigue (and gossip) ensue as the café owner Tom Shaw (Andrew Nadrofsky) his friend/business partner Orson Hubble (Mark Trussell) and locals Bev Dupuis (Sheila Williams) and Rachel Blessington (Lois Archer-Duell) get to know Sadie and try to make sense of the increasing number of odd occurrences since her arrival.

Foster’s play captures the atmosphere of life in a small Canadian town.

The show is not quite a sequel, but a continuation of events in the sleepy town of Big Oak involving Tom and Orson, two beloved characters that ACT patrons might well remember from a previous production, Ned Durango Comes to Big Oak.

Tickets are on sale now at The Guy Next Door in Armstrong.
