Locals Know - For the Pleasure of Seeing Her Again

I realize that we keep gushing about everything we have seen this season, but we can't help it. As Ross wrote on the Festivals facebook page " It just keeps getting better and better! It is the cherry on top of an already brilliant season and must not be missed."

This play is a beautiful slice of life that made us laugh and cry. I think everyone will be able to identify with Lucy Peacocks character. She portrays an exuberant woman that every audience member will connect with, and she will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride. Tom Rooney has also hit his stride this season and we tilt our hats to his performance. This was the play that I was most looking forward to this season and it surpassed every expectation. We don't want to give too much away but what we will say is "DON'T MISS THIS PERFORMANCE."


  1. Hey guys!
    It's great to read what you have to say about each of the shows. This was the show I was most looking forward to seeing this season as well, I'm a huge Michel Tremblay fan so was thrilled to see this on the playbill...and Hosanna for next year.
    Lucy Peacock and Tom Rooney are simply amazing in these roles.
    Thank you for sharing your love of the Festival!

  2. Hi Guys: I too loved this play. Last year I thought "The Trespassers" was the beautiful little gem of the season, and this year it is "For The Pleasure". One thing, you might warn any of your guests going to see this, to take lots of Kleenex. They will need it, and I speak from experience. I hope to see this play at least once more before it ends, two if I am lucky. Donna
