A World Premiere Farce

A small-town waterfront resort is threatened by overdue bank loans and a condo developer looking to build on the site. Just then, an eccentric Hollywood writer storms into town with a list of demands and the cash that might just save the business.

A new comedy inspired by the 1000 Islands!
