Playgoers of Lethbridge welcomes a new director directing a fresh new Canadian comedy “Hurry Hard,” by Kristen Da Silva .


“ I directed  high school plays for 44 years so I’ve directed 95 plays, but I’ve never directed adults before. So I’m looking forward to that challenge,” said director Greg Wolcott.

 Auditions for “Hurry Hard” are Monday, Nov. 20 at 8 p.m and Tuesday, Nov. 21 in the casa community room.


“ It’s a slice of Canadian life. These characters are very common and simple people. Curling is a big part of their lives,” Wolcott summarized, adding you don’t have to know anything about curling to understand the play.


“I haven’t seen it. The rights just came available. It deals with relationships around a small town curling club. It’s about a couple who are forced to reconcile over curling,” he continued.

 One of the members of the rink is forced to drop out during health issues which means the couple are forced to work together to compete in a big regional bonspiel when one of  the rink members has to drop out because of health issues.

The play is a heartwarming comedy which takes place inside a curling club and revolves around Sandy and Bill, a formally married couple, whose curling team split up seven years ago. They then split into a men’s team and a women’s team. The two teams are about to compete in a big regional bonspiel, when a medical emergency leaves the men’s team short of a player. The two teams will need to reconcile if they have any hope of winning the trophy. 


“ It’s basically a comedy with a few dramatic moments,” Wolcott said.


 The cast includes three men and two womenwho can play characters aged 30-40.

“ The the actors can be anywhere from 25 to the 40s,” he said.

Hurry Hard by will be held on Monday, Nov. 20 at 8 pm and Tuesday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Casa community room.

“ We’d like to begin rehearsals on Thursday because the play is in February. But there will be a break over Christmas,” he said , adding rehearsals will be scheduled around the cast’s schedules.

The play runs at the Sterndale Bennett Theatre Feb. 7-10, 2024.
