I Never Sang for My Father hits the Saanich stage

‘This heartwarming play is deeply moving, remarkably timely and strikes a universal chord’

St. Luke’s Players Community Theatre is busy preparing for the 1960s drama I Never Sang for My Father.

“After a year of widowhood, 40-year-old Gene, a college professor, is ready to move from New York City and marry a California divorcee. However, he is torn apart by his desire to start a new life and his guilt over leaving his frail parents. He is determined to resolve a lifelong conflict between himself and a domineering father,” according to a release from St. Luke’s Players.

This play is said to be deeply moving, remarkably timely, and touches those experiencing family, aging, and loss. The theme of father-son alienation is well developed in the creative set design, lighting, sound, props, and set decor.
