Experience…Theatre to the MAX!
WITH NORM FOSTER'S THE LONG WEEKEND
"Wicked wit and uproarious comedy by our favourite playwright! It was your love of Norm Foster that humoured me into a tradition of Foster romantic comedies. So here's my favourite – The Long Weekend: two couples come to a cottage where they discover fantastic truths and hilarious deceptions" says Reimer.
