Montreal playwright pens DCP production

WINCHESTER – Life can throw you curves, but it is how you deal with these that keeps your feet on the road or throws you off kilter. 

Alexandria Haber’s play On This Day portrays fumbling relationships, sustainable living, youth recklessness, and birthday dinners in an intelligent, funny and moving production of reality. 

This play was first produced in Montreal at the Centaur Theatre in 2016, and the Dundas County Players (DCP) secured the rights to bring it to Winchester’s Old Town Hall this month.

An eye for pie
Village firefighter Terry Wagner had the envious job of being so very close to the desserts during the Winchester station’s ninth annual pie auction Wed., April 12. The pre-Easter event helped reel in more than $5,000 for the detachment, which this year is looking to upgrade its communication equipment.
