"A fun-filled romp … shifting coffins, secret passageways, and mysterious millions!"
For the final offering of the 2019 Summer Season, celebrating uniquely made-in-Canada
stories, the Port Stanley Festival Theatre presents "It's Your Funeral", a classic
farce by Jamie Williams, in their newly renovated Grace Auditorium. Running from
August 14th, "It's Your Funeral" will enjoy an extended four-week run with a closing
performance on September 7th.
Featuring Tim Machin ("Frankenstein", "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", "North
Mountain Vanya"), Caitlin Driscoll ("Where You Are", "Sunshine Express", "Buying
the Moose"), Tiana Leonty ("Mockingbird Close", "La Maleta"), William Vickers (23
years at the Shaw Festival, and three seasons with the Stratford Festival), and
Brian Young ("Who's Under Where?", "Boeing Boeing", "Outlaw", "Weekend Comedy")
"It's Your Funeral" is directed by PSFT Artistic Director Simon Joynes, and Stage
Managed by Suzanne McArthur, with Set Design by St Thomas's Eric Bunnell, Lighting
Design by Karen Crichton, and costumes by Alex Amini.
"Jamie Williams' sparkling new farce is a classic blend of high stakes fast paced
surprises complete with bookies, mobsters, Pomeranian triplets, and a first-across-the-line
finish that defies belief."
With a varied season, which will appeal to single ticket buyers, subscribers, and
tour groups alike, the Port Stanley Festival Theatre provides another season of
top quality entertainment in 2019.
