Every year the Tracadie Players put on plays at dinner theatres to raise funds for community organizations in the community of Tracadie, Prince Edward Island. This year’s play, a farce is based on what goes on at the Motor Vehicle Office when people want to get, renew or transfer a driver’s license. It was written by Gary Gaudet, a member of the community.
The play was presented at the 2016 edition of the PEI Community Theatre Festival held the first Saturday in March. This is the third Theatre Thursday post about the festival.
The young man (below) was worried that, if he didn’t get his license in time, he wouldn’t be able to get home with the car because it would be night time and the N (for night) setting on his car didn’t seem to work. D of course stood for day. He said it didn’t work very well either when he put it in P for pause while he was driving.
The old fellow had brought his friends from the home along because they needed him to drive them to bingo and shopping. When he returned from his driver’s test, either he and the tester had been into the back seat, or, he drove so badly they had been both roughed up. I think it was the former.
