Come Down from Up River

A world premiere production from The Foster Festival

Shaver Bennett has lived a rather solitary life as a logger in the woods of northern New Brunswick.

One day he arrives at the doorstep of his estranged sister’s daughter, whom he hasn’t seen in 20 years.

The niece, Bonnie Doyle and her wife Liv Arsenault welcome him into their lives in this sweetly moving tale.

Set in Saint John, New Brunswick, Come Down From Up River explores family and forgiveness with a healthy dose of laughter sprinkled with tears.
