A Family Matters Farce From Drayton Entertainment’s It Runs In The Family

A Family Matters Farce From Drayton Entertainment’s It Runs In The Family



This summer, Drayton Entertainment’s It Runs In The Family will have you running to the Drayton Festival Theatre to see this British Farce.  It is a relief from the heat by being set at Christmastime, a time when the hospital has a lot of hustle bustle going on.  Not only are the characters in this show dealing with patients, a seminar and the hospital’s annual Christmas panto, one doctor is dealing with the news that he fathered a child 18 years ago.  After receiving the news that his affair with a nurse has made him an instant Dad to an emotionally unstable son, he also learns that the boy is searching the hospital halls for him.  In order to keep his past indiscretions under wraps while preparing for the biggest speech of his career, he enlists the help of a longtime friend and fellow doctor help to cover up what is going on.  As the play unfolds, the stories they tell the hospital staff, family members and even the police sergeant get stretched, and the plot thickens as each character gets involved. 

Parents’ Nigh Out

We think this comedy would make a great Parents’ Night Out.  You will be beside yourself with the facetious wit, sarcastic remarks, comedic prat falls and slapstick humour that happens throughout the show.  Just like Drayton Entertainment’s farce Run For Your Wife, this year’s It Runs In The Family will help you see the funny side of family matters.

It Runs in the Family is on stage at the Drayton Festival Theatre through August 6. Tickets are $44 for Adults and $26 for Youth under 20 years of age. Tickets for groups of 20 or more are $36. HST is applicable to all ticket prices.

Tickets may be purchased online at, in person at any Drayton Entertainment Box Office, or by calling toll free 1-855-DRAYTON (372-9866).
