The Motor Trade by Norm Foster


Saturday November 25, 2017
7:30 pm
The Stage House



It’s winter in Ontario, the time of year when nights are the longest and the snow piles up in drifts. Dan and Phil are long-time business partners in “the motor trade” – buying and selling used cars. A blizzard is raging outside on this January Saturday, and the two old friends (played by Laurel Brewer and Greg Dueck) don’t have much to do at the office but talk. Things start out pretty light-hearted, but as the morning wears on – and they are visited by a CRA auditor who has been hot on Phil’s trail for some time (Val Laughlin) and Phil’s recently estranged wife (Katie Roach) – things become, by turns, hilarious, tense, shocking and touching.

This is a play for adults, with some profanity, sexual peccadillos (well, at least some talk about them), agonizing choices, cheating and betrayal. It is richly rewarding in its use of ordinary people to explore some of life’s deepest dilemmas.https://www.kamloopsplayers.com/the-motor-trade

The Kamloops Players have been located at the Stage House for the past three years.  We are still in the process of upgrading our space, it is a work in progress, but we have appreciated having this space in which to rehearse and perform.  We also appreciate our close association with Hatsuki Sushi, with whom we share the building.

The Stage House is available for use by different groups for a variety of events at a reasonable cost.

Our space has two entrances from outside, one leads into the main hallway leading to the theatre proper and one leads into our lobby area.  The street entrance into the main hallway provides wheelchair access to the theatre and lobby areas.

Our theatre area is versatile.  We have 24 tables and 90 chairs which can be set up bistro style or alternatively the chairs can be set up in rows.  We can provide basic

tablecloths for the tables.

The theatre area contains both a mens’ and womens’ washroom and a small green room leading to the stage.
