A relaxing weekend trip full of fishing, football, and beer is on the agenda for the Melville brothers. Unfortunately, so is confronting eldest brother Lee's terminal illness. But weekend plans are suddenly thrown for a loop when the boys meet two attractive sisters, who inadvertently change more than just their agenda. In this modern Canadian classic, Norm Foster offers a lighthearted comedy full of vigour about brotherhood and the unexpected.

A favourite among Norm Foster's classics, The Melville Boys is "...a wonderfully witty script" (Kamloops News).


"The Melville Boys succeeds—as a play, as a statement and, most assuredly, as entertainment. "
