Revived off- Broadway to rave reviews, this definitive spoof of the horror genre is a hilarious laugh from start to finish. Victorian melodrama, farce, satire and a dash of Alfred Hitchock are lampooned in high camp style. A sympathetic werewolf, a vampire, insomnia, a mystery, a murder or two, even an Egyptian mummy brought to life make this a comedy which is breathtaking, athletic, insane, unforgettable!
“A really good laugh... The story has to be seen to be believed. - The New York Post • "Lunatic fun that keeps you in stitches." - The New York Daily News • "A true vaudeville tour de farce.... It's wonderful." - Time

In the midst of an economic downturn, who wouldn’t jump at the chance to make some extra cash? A ‘regular’, middle-aged couple suddenly lose their jobs. Panicked, they stumble upon the idea of producing an ‘adult movie’ to make ends meet. Like fish out of water and deer in headlights, these lovable characters will keep you in stitches. Will morality be swayed by financial necessity?
Don’t let the title fool you. This is a good-natured, beautifully crafted play, with characters who are highly likeable; and when all is said and done, it's actually a love story with a gentle heart. It’s a naughty but affectionate comedy about "reel" people trying to make ends meet!

Wingfield Lost & Found
by Dan Needles (Canadian)
Starring Rod Beattie, Directed by Douglas Beattie
In the midst of a record drought, wells on the Seventh Line are drying up. A search to locate a new well on Wingfield Farm ensues, but distractions abound: a high-tech cattle drive, a battle with yellow jackets, a feud with a red-tailed hawk, an eccentric line-up of water witches and a well-driller who is only too happy to perforate the ground at forty dollars a foot.
Is it the end of farming for Walt and Maggie, or can the precious liquid be found? This comedy is a whimsical reminder that searching can turn up more than what is lost and teach us the value of more than what is found. The seventh (and most recent) in the series.
“... skillfully drawn observations on human foibles... keeps up the level of craftsmanship Beattie and Needles have perennially maintained.”-- Adrian Chamberlain, Victoria Times Colonist • “... the jokes are still insightful, and they can still shake the rafters with laughter... addresses serious problems with warmth and understanding... Lost and Found feels rich and full. It's a truly exceptional work.”-- Kathleen Bell, See Magazine
