A 30th HIGH SCHOOL REUNION - WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

The latest, and funniest, offering by one of Canada's premier playwrights. Can you go home again?  What if you're the one who never left?  Join Nurk, Dookie, Heff, Boots and Bitsy as they gather in Cape Breton on the eve of their 30th high school reunion, remembering the good times and bad, and the drinking game called BINGO.  A story of friendship, growing up, and the nice guy finally getting the girl. 

"MacIvor's script offers laughs, meat to chew on, and a relatable reflection on how our past shapes our present. The real winner in this round of Bingo! is the audience." -- Joff Schmidt, CBC Manitoba Scene         >> Read more
