Ernest and Ernestine live in a perfectly ordered world until cracks appear in the veneer. Repressed anger rears its ugly head and the couple's efforts to maintain order and affection range from comic to tragic.
Robert Morgan has written more than twenty professionally produced plays, many of which have toured nationally and internationally and he has acted in and directed more than forty productions. He has won the prestigious Chalmers Award for outstanding play six times and four of his plays have won the Dora Mavor Moore Award for best production. His work has received a total of ten Dora nominations and has been performed around the world. In 2001, Robert was the founding artistic director of the Children's Peace Theatre. In its first two seasons, the Peace Theatre involved more than one hundred children and young people in an active program of training, workshops, and performances. In his role as artistic director, Robert delivered two official presentations to the United Nations in New York at the 2002 Special Session on the Children of the World. Prior to his work with the Peace Theatre, Robert formed Roseneath Productions in 1986 with David S. Craig in order to produce and tour his solo show Morgan's Journey. The play, which has become the longest running touring play in Canadian history, has been called a children's classic and the company, which incorporated as Roseneath Theatre in 1993 has established an international reputation for producing plays of the highest quality for audiences of all ages. He lives in Toronto with his wife, Susan Lee Marcus, and their two children Diana and Clare.
