In this new Canadian comedy from audience favourite Norm Foster, the year is 1938 and newly laid-off perfumier Mary Hayes is trying to break into the male-dominated world of newspaper journalism. Editor-in-chief Bosco Godfrey sets a competition between his egotistical star reporter Jeff Kincaid and plucky Mary, assigning them to cover a society wedding. If Jeff writes the better story, he gets to keep his job. If Mary wins, she will replace the ace newshound. A homage to those zany screwball comedies of that time period, this play is full of snappy period dialogue, outrageous characters, and humour that packs a punch. Performances at 8 p.m. on August 17 - 20 and 23 - 27. Performances at 2 p.m. on August 20 & 25.
