Maggie's Getting Married, is an ex­ample of the sparkling wit and human insight of Canada's most prolific writer of comedies-that-matter, Norm Foster is Canada's funniest and most produced playwright and this comedic gem will have you doubled over with laughter from beginning to end.

Join the Duncan family who has gath­ered together for a party the night before the wedding of their youngest daughter, Maggie.

Maggie's older sister Wanda has just returned home for the wedding with her actor boyfriend in tow to meet the groom for the first time. When the groom, a real estate salesman, finally arrives, Wanda discovers that she knows him a little bet­ter than Maggie would like her to and chaos ensues.


Director Dorothy Gardner, has cast a zany cocktail of actors in this snappy, sexy piece in a perfect mix of just-over-the-top. Linda Webster as the lovingly controlling mom, Tara Scisson as the sex-pot sister, and Tim Finnigan as the gyno-phobic actor, and the more grounded in reality, Richard Groen as the seemingly wholesome groom-to-be, lan Stauffer the introspective, middle-aged dad and Sherry Thurig  as the sweet, sincere Maggie.
