Can he mobilize the neighbourhood to save the rustic splendour of Larkspur? Does Larkspur want to be saved? Wingfield's Progress is the story of Walt's passionate response to a threat only he perceives. Larkspur and its residents are back at their hilarious best in this sequel to Letter From Wingfield Farm.
A riveting and immaculately constructed little play, performed to perfection... Beattie electrifies the stage.

John McDermott - Looking Back - 20th Anniversary Tour / October 17
Tickets are $47.50. John McDermott can recall the precise moment when he realized that giving up his day job and making singing his full-time career had been the right decision. That moment came at 8 pm on October 5th, 1993 at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax as he walked on stage to a full house and a thunderous East Coast welcome. It was his first concert with his own band, and he was received with such wild encore-inducing enthusiasm the concert turned into a 4 hour marathon. John was hooked!
Now, 20 years and more than 25 albums later, John McDermott is an international recording star and household name. Besides his stellar musical career - platinum, double-platinum, triple-platinum albums - he is also known for his commitment to veterans’ causes - the U. S. Congressional Medal of Honour Society's Bob Hope Award, the Ted Williams Globe & Anchor Award from the USMC, and here at home, a commendation from the Minister of Veteran’s Affairs for this ongoing work, which includes his foundation McDermott House Canada.
