ABOUT THE PLAY

The Fly Fisher’s Companion is the very funny and poignant story of two lifelong friends who take an important fly fishing trip to Cape Breton's Margaree River. A classic odd couple, cantankerous  Don is a hard nosed businessman and Wes is a chatty philosopher poet. They grew up together and raised their families on summer trips to the Margaree, but there are scars from their personal lives and the battlefields of World War II which have estranged them for years. Will this trip mark the bitter end or new beginning of a decades-old friendship?

The Fly Fisher’s Companion was first produced in 2005 by Ship’s Company Theatre in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia and is produced by permission of the Playwright and Marquis Literary (Colin Rivers) www.mqlit.ca
