Here On The Flight Path a bittersweet tale

When Beverly True was mulling over scripts in hopes of a summer production, she wanted something light and funny, but something with a message.

She feels she found that with Norm Fosters Here On The Flight Path.

Norm Foster hasnt written just a bunch of cheap jokes about people, True said recently during a rehearsal at the Tantramar Theatre. Its bittersweet, so it gives some dimension to it. Its not just ha ha ha. Its got this lovely human dimension.

Local actors Jennifer Robicheau, Barb Bowes, Valerie Fahey, and John Keirstead will star in the play being performed at the Tantramar Theatre tonight until Sunday and again Aug. 9 to 12.

The story is about a Toronto newspaper columnist whos always talking about writing a novel, but hes stuck in a rut and hes also afraid of commitment. Three ladies come into his life before moving on to bigger and better things, while he stays put.

John is living on the flight path. The others come and they go. They go to make something of themselves, True said. I dont think its a deep message, but I think people will understand.

The group has been working diligently for the past five weeks to pull the production together. True credited Tantramar Theatre Society artistic director Bette Douglas and stage designer Daren White as critical components of preparations as well.

With all the hard work put into the play, True urges everyone to come out to see the results.

It will be an evening of entertainment by four very talented actors. Its a light way to pass two evening hours in the summertime, she said.

Show time is 8 p.m. each night. For tickets, contact the box office at 667-7002.
