Driftwood Theatre – August 2, 2013, 7:30pm
The great general of the Trojan war, Odysseus, has been missing at sea for twenty years. His wife, the Ithican Queen Penelope, struggles to maintain the safety of her kingdom, her son and herself in the face of an increasingly hostile hoard of suitors. When a stranger arrives offering the fantastical story of her missing husband, does she dare hope that he might still be alive?
This summer, Driftwood Theatre takes you on the greatest journey of love, adventure and the search for home ever told.

Greens Lake is a “stand-a-lone” or “land locked” lake, a large portion of which is surrounded by Crown Land, and, fewer than 70 cottages on the lake. Situated in the newly renamed Municipality of Trent Lakes, Peterborough County, 20 km south of Gooderham, 30 km to Buckhorn and 40 km to Bobcaygeon you are never far from a farmers market or an evening in town.
The scenic Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park is nearby. Numerous access points are close, it is an outdoor lovers paradise. Situated along the southern edge of the Canadian Shield, this relatively undeveloped area features a rugged rolling landscape of small lakes, wetlands, forests and rocky barrens.
7 Overlooked items to check before buying that house!
Buying a home this year? The place where you set down roots should be a respite from the world. It should be calm, relaxing, stress-free, and exciting. Here are some often forgotten features to look into before you sign on the dotted line:
1. Visit the would-be home at several times of day. Things appear differently with a new light shone on them. Suddenly, those oak cabinets are peach-coloured and replacing them is a potential expense you didn’t know you had.
2. Is the home tech-friendly?
How annoying would it be if you didn’t have cell or data reception in your own home? Some communities still don’t have access to fast home internet services. Older homes may have limited wiring. If you have gadgets, make sure you’ll be able to use them.
3. Turn on the shower, and flush the toilets.
Low water pressure could be a deal breaker, and loud pipes in bedroom walls could keep you up at night.
4. Explore the neighborhood.
Go for a drive or take the dog for a walk. If you feel uncomfortable – it’s not the place for you.
5. Do your research.
Are you in a flood zone? Protected lands? Check the property and area for anything that could end up costing more than anticipated.
6. Don’t let the little things deter you.
Perhaps you don’t like tray ceilings. Is the shade of wood in the kitchen looking dated? Is the paint colour questionable? Focus on the bones of the house and the location, everything else can be changed.
7. Look into community events.
If you live next door to a park that holds week long festivals every year, you’d better enjoy the music or the location could get stale sooner than your 10 year plan. In contrast, if your community doesn’t have access to activities you enjoy, it could bore you into moving before your time.
