St. Catharines, ON

Originally presented as a livestream on July 2 by the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre.

The FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre is proud to welcome back our core summer resident and partner, The Foster Festival!

Established in the fall of 2015, The Foster Festival is the only Canadian theatre festival to celebrate the work of a living playwright. Norm Foster is the most produced playwright in Canadian history with over 60 plays receiving an average of 150 productions each year across Canada and internationally.

Our #Niagara community is very fortunate that Norm Foster and his hilarious heartwarming plays have found a permanent home in our local world-class venue.

A live reading of the Foster favourite "Here on the Flight Path" performed by Melanie Janzen and Jamie Williams. Love, life and loss are all discussed with big laughs and a few tears in what many describe as Norm Foster’s funniest play ever.

The performance is followed by a Q&A session with the actors and Norm Foster!
