High Times at the Heart Institute new musical to fund-raise for local healthcare
HIGH TIMES AT THE HEART INSTITUTE
By Ish Theilheimer, Directed by Chantal Elie-Sernoskie
Aging Boomers come to terms with mortality and come to appreciate the wonders of Canada's health system in a musical comedy involving heart patients Bobby and Wendy - two aging rock and rollers and exes - Arthur, a left-wing cynic and Maggie, a Tea Party American whose HMO leaves her high and dry, as well as Toni, a stressed-out and overworked nurse. Wendy uses a secret from her old hippie days to save the day.
Inspired by Ish’s own personal experience as a patient at the Heart Institute, this comedy musical will be presented as a series of fundraisers for local hospitals and foundations.
The cast of Stone Fence regulars includes John Haslam, Fran Pinkerton, Peter Brown (also on keys), Lesley Sneddon and Shirley Hill. Derek Tollhurst plays bass and Evan Burgess plays guitar in the show.
