BUYING THE FARM
A co-production with Magnus Theatre
By Shelley Hoffman and Stephen Sparks
Directed by Thom Currie
January 31 – March 30, 2019



Synopsis
Magnus Bjornson is a sixty-something down-to-earth bachelor who has worked on his family farm all his life. His smart-as-a-whip niece, Esme Van Fossen, has been helping her great-uncle for the past four months, but when issues arise things go awry. Magnus’s health takes a turn, his finances are out of sorts and there’s a real estate developer ready to make an offer. Watch this delightfully comedic story unfold and embrace life’s inevitable changes amongst the cows and chickens.
