There’s no such thing as a secret in Stewiacke, Nova Scotia. Not when good friends meet for coffee every day at 4:30 p.m. at the local diner. Vi, Rita, Mary Ellen, and Janine are all as close as can be, and they know everybody’s business. But when Sean, a heartbroken doctor from Toronto, moves in to take a temporary job at the clinic, he tips the Maritime town that’s famous for being halfway between the North Pole and the equator, off its axis.
Norm Foster is at his best here as Halfway There is just that kind of lovely play: old-fashioned and truthful, warm and wise, funny and touching. You will root for everyone, longing for them to find happiness.
A new Canadian Classic!
