Hilda’s Yard, February, 2015
This comedy written by Norm Foster is directed by Jeremy Dutton
A nostalgic, heart-warming and hilarious look back in time
One ordinary family. One extraordinary day. Set in 1956, Sam and Hilda Fluck are finally on their own after their children Gary and Janey leave the nest. Thinking that he and his wife Hilda are empty nesters now and can start to live their OWN lives, Sam buys their first television set. Then, on a September morning, their world changes when Gary loses his job and Janey leaves her husband. It is a poignant and funny look at how family dynamics don’t really change much over the years.
Beloved New Brunswick playwright Norm Foster gives us a comedic peek over the picket fence into Hilda’s Yard for a heart-warming and hilarious look back in time.
