Wrong Turn at Lungfish

Written by Garry Marshall and Lowell Ganz

2017-10-26 to 2017-11-25


The story of a blind and bitter college professor and his encounter with a saucy, streetwise young woman who volunteers to read to him in the hospital. The clash of intellect and wit takes the two from animosity and fear to friendship and understanding. Both come to their relationship with questions. Both leave with hopeful answers. Dramatic Comedy, Adult content.

The Cast of Wrong Turn at Lungfish
"Peter Ravenswaal" - John Nolan

John was never any good at acting. Just because he was best actor at TBC Mainstage twice for Clarence Darrow, (1986) and R.P. Murphy ( One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest) means nothing in the grand scheme of theatre. The Tommy Douglas one man show he toured across Canada (2004-2009) could have been done by any actor. Tommy was loved by almost everybody. Apart from a few minor plays he’s written, he hasn’t accomplished much,...had a three year world holiday masquerading as as photographer on the Love Boat. Oh yeah, some critics used words like...well they were pretty effusive. (We wonder how much he got paid.) Among his other skills, John’s not bad at training actors. Many of his students work in performing arts in the UK, U.S. and Canada.
