CORNWALL — The Vagabond Theatre of Cornwall presents An Evening of Canada, eh? featuring the one- act comedy The Death of Me by Canadian playwright, Norm Foster, on October 13, 14, 20, 21 at 7:30 p.m. and on October 15 at 1:30 p.m. at the Seaway Senior Citizens’ Club, 506 Pitt St., Cornwall.

The play is directed by Cameron MacPhee and produced by Dan Youmelle.  Cast members are Mike Chatelain, Kyle Beaudette, Jenny Dagenais, and Paul Aubin.

MacPhee said Foster, who has written over 50 plays, is Canada’s most prolific playwright. He explained that this comedy, The Death of Me, follows John Adderly, a mild-mannered, too-nice-for-his own-good young fellow who gets a second chance at life after a fatal aneurysm.  MacPhee stated, “Norm Foster’s well paced, amusing comedy will delight local audiences.”

Youmelle said, “Vagabond Theatre will be entering The Death of Me in the 2017 Eastern Ontario Drama League One-Act Play Festival in Constance Bay on November 3-5.”  Youmelle indicated that since its inception in 1983, Vagabond Theatre has participated at various times in the Eastern Ontario Drama League Festivals and has won several awards.

In addition to the one-act play, Vagabond’s An Evening of Canada, eh? will also feature Canada: A History with songs, poems, and stories with music performances by Cameron MacPhee and Jill Underwood.

Tickets at $20 are available at Scotiabank, Brookdale Centre Cornwall and the Seaway Senior Citizens’ Club.
