Rod Beattie - Wingfield Lost and Found

7th in a series of plays about stockbroker-turned-farmer, Walt Wingfield.

Written By Dan Needles
Performed By Rod Beattie
Directed By Douglas Beattie

In the midst of a record drought, wells on the Seventh Line are drying up. A search to locate a new well on Wingfield Farm ensues, but distractions abound: a high-tech cattle drive, a battle with yellow jackets, a feud with a red-tailed hawk, an eccentric line-up of water witches and a well-driller who is only too happy to perforate the ground at forty dollars a foot. Is it the end of farming for Walt and Maggie, or can the precious liquid be found?

More than an environmental comedy, Wingfield Lost and Found is a whimsical reminder that searching can turn up more than what is lost and teach us the value of more than what is found.
