The Lodge by Mary Hamilton

Key City Theatre

Marla is trying to make a success of a hunting lodge that her father left to he when he died. Her first booking is a private school group from Calgary for a “weekend in the wilderness.” An old boyfriend shows up with some clients of his own: a big game trophy hunter and his entourage. Double booked, Marla despairs, but due to a dangerous, road-blocking snow storm, has no choice but to go along with it. The weekend unfolds with visits from the RCMP, a crime gang, a bear, and a mountain mystic who talks to the dead. The Lodge is a comedy with lots of fun for ages 10 and up.
