   In print for the first time, Donald Jack’s comedy The Canvas Barricade was the first Canadian play performed on the main stage of the Stratford Festival (1961). The original cast included Peter Donat, Kate Reid, Jack Creley, Amelia Hall, Zoe Caldwell, and Bruno Gerussi.

But as summer draws to an end, reality rears its ugly head, and Misty must choose between starving in his tent and moving to the city with his fiancée. Meanwhile, his in-laws-to-be smell a cash cow when a mysterious art buyer begins snapping up Misty’s work – and naturally they keep the money. Out of kind consideration for Misty’s artistic ideals, of course…
