THE FULL STORY:

Many Hats Theatre Company is pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for Fortune’s Fools the third show in their sixth season! Fortune’s Fools opens on the Cannery Stage July 4.

This hilarious comedy by Frederick Stroppel is a concise history of love gone right and love gone wrong. It’s the story of two couples, Chuck and Gail who are about to be married and Jay and Bonnie the best man and maid of honor.

Chuck is so smitten with Gail that he makes up stupid rhymes like “perfect life and perfect wife.” Jay on the other hand is less smitten with feminist, vegetarian, Bonnie. After their first meeting he remarks that he has experienced “…an overwhelming rush of instant contempt.”

Things don’t always work out the way we expect and the twists and turns in these two relationships are definitely a unique look at the institution of marriage!

Fortune’s Fools is directed by Jamie Eberle and produced by Eleanor Walker. It stars Many Hats favorie Colleen Fox as Bonnie. Making their debut on the Many Hats stage will be Tyler Evans, Michelle Younie, and Thomas Hunter

The New York post praised the show’s playwright, Frederick Stroppel, as one who “knows how to create immensely likable characters…a fun play indeed! Filled with lively often hilarious dialogue, Fortune’s Fools was called “a rather tasty slice of wedding cake” by the Newark Star Ledger and “an old-fashioned love story (that is) funny, fast paced, entertaining and delightful” by Stages Magazine.

Fortune’s Fools opens on the Cannery Stage in the Cannery Trade Centre 1475 Fairview Road Penticton on July 4 and runs until July 27. Showtimes are: Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:00PM and Sunday at 2:00PM.

There will be a reception opening night in the adjoining Opus Bistro which will give everyone a chance to meet and chat with the cast and crew.
