Walt's back! Join us for Wingfield Lost and Found, by Dan Needles, starring Rod Beattie, the 7th and final installment of the hilarious and insightful Wingfield series.
Walt Wingfield is a Fall Festival favourite. The first six Wingfield plays have all been featured here over the last couple of decades.
In Wingfield Lost and Found we find Persephone Township in the midst of a scorching drought. Wells on the Seventh Line are drying up. A search to locate a new well on Wingfield Farm ensues, but distractions abound: a high-tech cattle drive, a battle with yellow jackets, a feud with a red-tailed hawk, an eccentric line-up of water witches and a well-driller who is only too happy to perforate the ground at forty dollars a foot. Is it the end of farming for Walt and Maggie, or can the precious liquid be found?
More than an environmental comedy, Wingfield Lost and Found is a whimsical reminder that searching can turn up more than what is lost and teach us the value of more than what is found.
