The Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre’s 2018-2019 season will mark their 50th Regional Tour, and 41st consecutive tour, with Shelley Hoffman and Stephen Sparks’ new Canadian play Buying the Farm, a romantic comedy that explores through a multi-generational lens the challenges of maintaining the family farm against the encroaching pressures of development.

When Brad Deacon, a young real estate agent trying to prove himself to his father, arrives at the Bjornson farm, he’s determined to succeed where others have failed. And that just may happen since the old, bachelor farmer, Magnus Bjornson, is now finding himself backed into a corner with mounting debt and suburban neighborhoods advancing from every direction. But chores, skunks and ants get in the way, not to mention Magnus’ high-spirited and secretive great niece Esme, who is unwavering in her resolve that this farm is NOT FOR SALE. How much is a fourth generation farm worth? Is it possible to hide from one’s self? And can anyone hold back “progress”? To answer these questions, Magnus, Esme and Brad must break through the divisions between urban and rural like to build a better future for them all…

Tickets are available at the door.
