Catch this classic British farce onstage in New Westminster
A Bedfull of Foreigners
The Royal Canadian Theatre Company is wrapping up its season with a classic British farce.
The setting for the play is the dingy Hotel Heinz on the border between France and Germany, where the inept staff create pandemonium after they book two couples into the same room. “Mistresses, mistaken identities, misunderstandings and unexpected wives, along with food poisoning outbreaks, monks, nuns and a Bulgarian lady cyclist all add to the mayhem during the Festival of St. Wolfgang,” a press release says.
The release notes that Ellie King, the theatre company’s artistic director, holds the show close to her heart as a classic British farce, and she loves exploring how relationships are affected through crazy and zany situations.
The cast includes Gary Peterman, Nikolas Perry, Steve Weller, Sally Anderson, Cindy Hirschberg-Schon, Dan Weber and Crystal Weltzin. It’s directed by King. Two New Westminster residents have key production roles: stage manager Stephanie Bruce, and lighting designer Nigel Brooke.
