How close can people get to the food they're eating, while eating and taking in a dinner theatre production.
Thanks to members of the Fraser Common Farm Cooperative on 256th Street in Aldergrove, the answer to that question is "insanely close."
Working in conjunction with FarmFolk CityFolk and Theatre on Earth Collective, the local cooperative is bringing a dinner theatre to town for three days this weekend.
The audience will spend a summer evening on the farm, following the storyline through planted fields and fruit orchards, as the character of Georgia - an organic farmer - and her scientist daughter Freidi struggle to save their family farm from an over-the-fence GMO attack and find love in unexpected places.
The evening finishes with guests, farmers, and actors sitting down to an open air organic meal grown on the very land we've just explored.
This "extremely local dinner theatre event" runs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, at Fraser Common Farm in Aldergrove, from 5 to 8: 30 p.m. It includes an organic dinner prepared by Aldergrove's Seasonal 56.
Seating is limited, and reservations are required. Tickets are $50 from Tallulah Winkelman at email@example.com or by calling 604-730-0450.
