I could not recommend this more highly! It was truly one of the best theatre productions I have ever seen. The acting and singing were outstanding and seamless, with the actors going from one character to another. It made us proud to be Canadian!

When all air traffic is grounded for several days in North America on September 11, 2001, the community of Gander, Newfoundland plays host to several thousand new visitors. The various cast members do a great service to the accents, colloquialisms, & cultural idiosyncrasies of locals...More

I think a discussion should take place prior to the show. Then the performance will be extremely meaningful.
