The Savannah Sipping Society - January 10 2020 @ 7.30pm January 11 2020 @ 2pm & 7.30pm

A fundraiser for the Centre Wakefield La Pêche!

If you’re looking for a good time – and for many that means going south in January – The Savannah Sipping Society may be your ticket. The laugh-filled encounter of four strangers on a verandah in Savannah is more than a story of female bonding; it’s about the wonder of choosing to be joyful even when life turns tough.

The Savannah Sipping Society was written in 2016 by a famous American playwriting trio collectively known as Jones Wooten Hope (Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten). These award-winning playwrights have written over 20 successful comedies that have been produced around the world. Jamie Wooten in particular was a writer for such television classics as “The Golden Girls,” where he won the coveted Writers Guild of America award.

The play comes to Wakefield from a successful run in Ottawa, where a critic called it “hilariously funny and entertaining.” As Rajka Stefanovska writes, “The Savannah Sipping Society is a funny, witty, fast-paced comedy about rediscovery through the power of friendship.” Just perfect for a winter’s day in Wakefield!

Tickets are $20 online from or $25 at the door.
