Elmira Theatre Company, 76 Howard Ave. Elmira ON

This production takes place in Port Petunia. Ed’s Garage does more than oil changes, it not only fixes cars, it fixes people. Ed is a retired farmer, turned garage owner but still considers himself a farmer for tax purposes. He has a natural gift for helping people with problems, and healing people. He meddles in common sense and freely shares advice that he picked up during his years as a farmer. (Ontario Farmer readers will find it easy to identify with Ed).

Things get a little complicated when Ed’s right hand man Nick discovers he has rented out the cottage adjacent to the garage to an accredited psychotherapist from the city named Cassandra and they have mistakenly taken on one of her clients. Peter arrived at the garage and Nick offered him a gold package – a treatment session with Ed combined with an oil change. Cassandra arrives looking for her 9:30 appointment and sees Peter tapping points on his body to get grounded and centred to regain balance and composure. Surprisingly she is not mad at Ed for stealing her client. She’s intrigued by Ed’s non- traditional techniques and wants to observe him in action.
