The opening scene of the Canadian play “Bare Bear Bones” by Canadian playwright Michael Grant will bring back memories to those who have arrived at campgrounds in the later hours, finding leaking coolers that have soaked their sleeping bags and malfunctions in their trailer.
In this hilarious comedy, empty-nesters Norman played by Doug Turvey and his wife Ruth played by Wendy Marshall attempt to reignite the spark in their marriage with a return to the Bear Bones Campground, a place where they remember being in love.
What a surprise in the morning when they find the beloved family getaway they remember is now an “alternative lifestyle” campground.
Campground owner is played by Ron Marshall and his two daughters are played by Meagan Hargreaves and Erica Marchand.
Paul and Joanne Baker play the roles of a married couple who console Norman and Ruth about everything under the sun including marriage.
Travis Brekelmans plays the role of a free-spirited young man.
All the actors have enjoyed playing many different roles on different stages and their bios will be printed in the program.
The play is directed by Mark Mooney, stage manager is Lynda Pillon and the producer is Sara Stephenson and assisted by Linda Murray.
