As I knew nothing about almost anything at the time, I didn't even understand it was all true.
Now I know a few more things and now Terry Fox is and will always be my true hero.
Written by the wonderful Ian Tamblyn and brought to life by the equally wonderful Theatre Wakefield, A Summer... A Fair is a short play that will stay in your memory forever.
Part historical drama, part musical comedy and 100 percent heart, the play takes place in 1944 at the famed Cantley Picnic.
There is fresh and there is local... and then there is something that elevates the concept one step beyond. Audrey Lapointe (above) is all of these things and more.

We have a smooth, fast highway for a country road. Now, at the end of June, when most roads are still pockmarked after the long winter and the rainy spring, we are a ribbon of road that invites stupidity.

They are in an excessive hurry, they pass on double lines and on blind corners, they are on their phones, they've had a few drinks, they are high, they are possibly not even licensed drivers.

What more could the under-5 set ask for?
