For those of you who are of hardy Canadian stock, let me paraphrase the wise words of Wig Wag Waters:
For any real hardcore Canadian fishing, you need to sit out on a frozen lake at thirty below and experience the sensation of your backside slowly freezing into an oblong popsicle while you wait for one frickin’ dopey fish to wander by and take your bait and when it does happen you’re so frickin’ cold you don’t know whether to haul it in or burst into frickin’ tears. Now that’s Canadian fishing.
But what happens when you can’t enter the annual Ice Fishing derby without a partner? And you find that your better half has teamed up with your partner’s spouse and are fishing in the ice shack right next to yours? And that idiot Mayor (who says he’s your brother) keeps coming by. And don’t even get me started about that new Derby Director and her West Coast ways. There is only one way to find out and that’s by coming out and enjoy an evening of Bad Fishing with the Kersley Players.
Bad Fishing is the latest contribution to the cornucopia of plays penned by local playwright, Roy Teed, and promises to be another farcical romp through the fictional town of Nester.
So come on out and meet the principal players (in order of appearance) Wig Wag Waters (Todd Dunphy); Bingo Floyd (Stuart Graham); Cassie Kaye Floyd (Jennifer Goodenough); Molly Waters (Sue Matheson); Melinda Jane Feathermore-Crouper (Deleenia Lovell) and The Mayor (Gary Minnett).
