Fritters in Kandahar

World Premiere

By Peter Boychuk
Directed by Valmai Goggin

A double double dose of crullers and comedy.

When Lisa decides to serve her country she means it - by serving coffee and crullers at the Tim Hortons on the air base in Kandahar. Faced with an overbearing boss, doughnut shortages, rocket attacks, and the advances of a handsome, fast-talking recruiter, life overseas is not all she dreamt it would be!

A funny and heartfelt look at our national obsession with coffee and the valour and bravery of civilians who volunteer to bring comfort to those overseas.
