Buying The Farm

A Rural Romantic Comedy

By Shelley Hoffman and Stephen Sparks

Directed by Kelli Fox


July 8 to July 25 Calendar Icon

Drayton Festival Theatre

Country wit meets city bluster in this fast-paced romantic comedy about the charms and challenges of maintaining the family farm.

Aging bachelor farmer Magnus Bjornson finds himself with mounting debt, some health concerns, and suburban neighbourhoods encroaching from every direction. Just when he's thinking about retirement, Brad, a young real estate agent, arrives at the farm determined to succeed where others have failed. It might be a done deal, except that Magnus' great-niece Esme is unwavering in her resolve that this family farm is NOT FOR SALE.

A love note to farming, this multi-generational comedy is also a sobering look at the plight of rural Canada. Don't miss this hilarious new comedy about high hopes, last stands, skunks, and love among the chickens.
