Wingfield Lost and Found finds humor to appeal to all
By Amanda Smith. From Gananoque Reporter
A drought, a cypress tree, a red-tailed hawk, an angry nest of yellow jacket ground bees, water witches, the butterfly effect and Walt Wingfield. These all come together to form the comical play Wingfield Lost and Found by Rod Beattie.
The seventh play in the Wingfield series, written by Dan Needles, Beattie continues to expand on the life of Wingfield, a retired stockbroker turned farmer.
In this play we follow Walt and 20 other characters through the trials of farming life in Persepone County as they experience a drought that lasts over 90 days.
