Norm Foster Finds a Home @ St. Jacobs Country Playhouse with Drayton Entertainment’s Production of Jonas and Barry in the Home

Many of our readers are familiar with the work of famous Canadian Playwright Norm Foster. We have been to several of the Drayton Entertainment plays written by him including last year’s productions of THE MEN’S FOURSOME, THE LADIES FOURSOME, and one of our favourites LOOKING.

This week we were invited to attend to attend Drayton Entertainment’s production of Jonas and Barry in that Home that was not only written by Norm Foster but also starred Norm Foster in the role of Jonas.


The show is set on the outdoor patio of a seniors’ retirement residence and while it mentions the others living in the establishment it is acted through 3 characters, Barry, his daughter Rosemary who works there, and new resident Jonas. Thorough these 3 people we see their views points on love and marriage, divorce and new relationships, sickness and health, life and death and how everyone deals with thoughts of aging. Together this trio inspire each other to make the most of their current situations while encouraging each other to learn from their past mistakes.  Through their stories you may laugh, and maybe shed a tear as you relate to each of these situations.

Jonas and Barry are as different as night and day. When the two men both move into Gateway Gardens assisted living home, they unwittingly become fast friends and look for ways to liven up the joint, while teaching each other some important life lessons along the way.
