Drayton Entertainment Reaps Their Harvest of Talent

The harvest season arrives early in Drayton Ontario this year with Drayton Entertainment’s production of HARVEST.  This comedic play set in farm country is also a testament to Drayton Entertainment’s commitment to cultivating great talent, which you quickly notice as they only have two actors take the stage to play a plethora of characters during this show.  Each character is distinguished by either hats, scarves or eye wear which means the actors had to really dive into the characters by changing vocal stylings and physical stature.  Without any real costume changes this show keeps your watching to see who is portraying who on the stage.

There Is a Healthy Helping of Comedic Timing In Harvest

The story is based on a farming couple approaching their Autumn Years and deciding how to best move away from their rural area.  Instead of selling the house on the family farm they decide to sell the farm but keep the house as a rental property.  When a nomad airline pilot convinces them that their farm is his top choice to plant some roots, they quickly accept him as a tenant.  This is how the comedy of errors begins. 

When we attended the Media Debut of Harvest, the couple that the play was based on was also in attendance, making it an extra special show!
