Then Old Man went to the Legion to play crib and I went with friends to see a Shakespearean spoof called "A Midsummer
Night's Midterm". It was about a group of students who were struggling to understand the original story. I learned some things from their studies and explanations to each other while seated in front of the left wing, in a small area made to look like a corner of one of their living rooms. The original play was being acted out on the rest of the stage and would freeze as the students discussed their impressions such as, "That woman needs therapy." or "Can't she see he is just not into her." I especially enjoyed the antics of a woman playing Puck. In real life she takes in foster children.
This is my friend Andrea who with her partner Nadine organize the Arts for the area under their umbrella organization called Winding Rivers Arts and Performance or WRAP. I was amazed at the quality of talent in this small area of Canada. Actors came from several local villages to put this on in the Ashcroft Community Hall. What a delightful birthday present this was. I laughed and laughed and enjoyed my evening so much. Thanks everybody.
