The Fly Fisher’s Companion

By Michael Melski
Director:  Joan Burrows
Producer: Wayne Milliner

Performance Dates: Sep 15 to 30, 2023

Optimistic poet Wes and testy businessman Don have returned to the fishing lodge they built together 50 years ago for one last trip to cast their lines into Cape Breton’s Margaree River and to reconnect after years of estrangement.  Their bonding, however, takes a deep trip through decades of both their friendship and their betrayals.  A poignant yet often funny play that explores love, loss and the hope of forgiveness, especially knowing that their time is running out.

Cast of 2 men for the following roles

Casting: Wes (70’s) the poet; thin, active gregarious man who talks initially in a light but urgent pattern because he’s on a mission this weekend knowing he has a terminal illness.

Don (70’s) a heavy, blunt and gruff business man, who is out of shape and who does not suffer fools gladly especially the enthusiasm of Wes.

(Both actors will be given lessons on fly fishing and attaching lures etc. during the rehearsal process. Maybe even an actual flyfishing experience??)

Rehearsals:  The schedule will be set after casting due to summer holiday plans but will generally be two evenings a week and Sunday afternoons or evenings.  Mandatory tech rehearsals for all cast and crew for rehearsals during the weeks of Sep 3 and Sep 10.

Audition Info: Scripts are available from Wayne Milliner ( or Joan Burrows (

There is a $20 deposit which is returnable if the script is in good condition. 
Please contact Wayne to specify the rehearsal evening you would prefer.
