The Mississauga Players are gearing up for their 63rd season with the Canadian Comedy “Renovations” by Elizabeth Ellwood (produced with permission of Elihu Entertainment). .
“This show is a clever comedy, with little British twists of humour throughout. It’s been both a challenge and a pleasure to work on these last couple of months,” says Deanna Moreira, director. This is Deanna’s second foray into the directing world. In 2011 she directed Last of the Red Hot Lovers by Neil Simon, and received very positive reviews from patrons, members and subscribers.
Penelope Tudge has just lost her father, and has taken on the challenge of caring for her mother. Her father was quite rich, and she finds herself no longer having to worry about money. However, as her mother’s house is cleared out and boxed up, the truth about her father’s escapades comes to light, threatening to divide the family and the estate in more ways than one! Her sister Marjorie is there to pipe up with her views on the situation, reminding us of her nickname; “bossybuns”, then there’s “Matron”, Stephanie, who always has her own opinion to contribute, all to the chagrin of Johnathon Tudge, Penelope’s slightly off kilter husband. Will the renovations get completed on time, and will they survive the gossip and mayhem? Or will Penelope take things into her own hands and make the problems simply disappear, without a trace? Come out and see this comedic show and join us in our Revival Series!
