July 3rd – July 28th
BED & BREAKFAST
By Mark Crawford
When Brett inherits the family home, he and Drew move out of fast-paced Toronto to set up a B&B in a picturesque tourist town. But will these big city boys face friction in their new community? With dozens of hilarious characters, all portrayed by two actors, Bed and Breakfast is a heartwarming comedy about “being out” in a small town, family skeletons in the closet, and finding a place to call home.
“…a doozy worthy of Faulty Towers.”
– Toronto Star
“…A gut-splittingly funny show.”
– Ottawa Star
Tuesday through Saturday at 8pm
Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2pm
(July 3rd and July 4th are Pay What You Can)
2hrs & 15 minutes with a 15-minute intermission
Why I chose this show:
The 2019 season is dedicated to examining the rural experience. Filled with humour, this play relies on the magic of theatre to tell its story as two actors portray over twenty characters, I am thrilled to bring former Ship’s Artistic Producer Pamela Halstead home for the summer.
Jack Paterson, Artistic Producer

Bed and Breakfast premiered at Thousand Islands Playhouse (Gananoque, ON) in August, 2015.
