A father and son reunion is at the center of Mending Fences, a human drama that is relevant to anyone who has ever been a son, daughter, or parent -- which includes us all. Written by Norm Foster, one of North America's most produced playwrights, and directed by longtime Little Fish Theatre Company Member Madeleine Drake, the fourth show of LFT's 2018 season will leave audiences with a uniquely cathartic theatrical experience. It's been thirteen years since Drew has seen or talked to his father, Harry. But marital upset in Drew's life drives him to make the 32 hour trek to visit and seek answers from the man who shaped his life. He meets Harry's girlfriend Gin, who tries to help them mend their strained relationship. Set in a farmhouse in rural Saskatchewan, flashback scenes delve into the past events that shaped their tenuous bond. As the play unfolds, Drew and Harry tentatively discover that they have more in common than even they realized.
