Take a peek at what goes on behind the bedroom door in Innisfail Town Theatre’s next production.

Take a peek at what goes on behind the bedroom door in Innisfail Town Theatre’s next production.

Norm Foster’s Bedtime Stories weaves together six tales that all take place around a bed: a shock radio jock pays a couple to make love on the air; a woman visits a dying man she hurt long ago; an aging rocker is confronted by a groupie; two thieves discover a shocking secret; an accident-prone stripper meets with her boss; and a woman leaving her husband lectures movers on how to treat a lady.

As the play unfolds, the audience sees a cross-section of humanity — from the hysterical to the poignant.

“Foster never makes the audience work too hard to find meaning or humour in a situation. He’s reliable without being predictable,” states the production’s director, Janis Bell.

Bedtime Stories, which celebrated the theatre group’s 35th anniversary, runs for nine performances including some dinner theatre productions, at the Ol’ Moose Theatre in Innisfail, starting on Thursday, Nov. 20, and running through Dec. 6. Tickets are $45 for dinner theatre shows or $25 for play-only stagings. Call The Legman at 403-227-5966.
