That Darn Plot
One of Canada's greatest playwrights is at the end of his rope. In order to fulfill his contract to his artistic director and old friend, he has to create a play in one night or lose everything. Hilarious and heartfelt, That Darn Plot is a comedy about playwriting, rehearsals, rewriting and rehabilitating reality as well as a sympathetic look at a creative writer who is unable to connect with the people around him, including his only child.
Written by: David Belke
Directed by: Paige Bourne
