The Judgment of Paris is new and old, heroic and tragic, historical and fictional.

8.Wingfield-1024x681Wingfield Lost and Found

Sponsored by: Valley Graphics. The much beloved Wingfield series returns to the Fredericton Playhouse with the latest instalment, the insightful and hilarious Wingfield Lost and Found. Set in the midst of a record drought, the search is on to locate a new well on Wingfield Farm. Along the way, distractions abound: a high-tech cattle drive, a battle with yellow jackets, a feud with a red-tailed hawk and a well driller who is all 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? More than an environmental comedy, Wingfield Lost and Found 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.
