Small town hospitality with Bed and Breakfast

This week I had a fun conversation with Mathew Hulshof and Chris Pereira, the two performers in Theatre Network’s production of Bed and Breakfast. This fast-paced, hilarious script is written by Canadian playwright Mark Crawford and tells the tale of a Toronto couple who inherit a B&B from their parents and have to return to their small town to run it. Mat and Chris talk about their own experiences with small towns, what it’s like to play 10 characters at once, overcoming the small town/big city divide, and what they had for breakfast.
