Bear & Co. is thrilled to premiere this rollicking modern farce by Ottawa-based playwright Kate Jaimet.
Eleanor Crowder directs Angelina Wehbe, Anurag Choudhury, Beverley Wolfe, Brendon Ly, David Frisch, Rachel Eugster, and William Beddoe, with stage management by Kat Wong and lighting by David Magladry.
Stuck in an unpaid internship at a tumble-down community tennis club, 22-year-old Chandra must prove her mettle by raising enough money to fix the roof before the City Inspector shuts the club down. But when her boyfriend Vin unwittingly causes a rift between a baby-boomer donor and her philandering husband, the young couple embarks on a mad cross-dressing scheme to win back the donor’s good graces and save the club — and Chandra’s job prospects — from ruin. With cameo appearances by Ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes and commedia dell’arte diva Isabella Andreini, does anyone play by the rules in this hilarious 21st-century farce?
