Welcome to the small city of Tartan pass, Nova Scotia, the place skeletons rattle in closets and previous histories are so intertwined that the lives of 4 fortysomething, eccentric characters became so complex that whatever must swap. within the comedy, strange geese, award-winning playwright Bryden MacDonald positions his 4 characters on the breaking point of existential angst and the motion unfolds from there.
At the centre of the drama is Ambrose, an irredeemable reprobate and the kind of man who rants philosophically on the bar whereas mooching beer from his neighbors. He's a narcissist who thinks he's God's present to ladies. And he's having an affair with Mandy Menzies, a captivating and gorgeous brunette who was once the highschool good looks queen yet is now caught in a wedding of comfort and a lifetime of boredom. Her housekeeper, Estelle Carmichael, has obvious all of it, yet her prickly external belies a loving middle. The dryly humorous Freddy Durdle is the appropriate counter-balance to over-the-top Ambrose.
All 4 oddballs look caught of their lives, yet searing sarcasm relieves the boredom and loopy, daily dramas reduction their fight to maneuver on and hold issues gentle.
