Dear CBC: Time For Balconville


hudson-players-club

Dear CBC,

While many areas of the country take the first tentative steps in reopening during the novel coronavirus 2019 pandemic, the ‘Stay at Home’ edict is still deemed to be the best way to stem the spread of the virus.

People who would have traveled will be unable to do so. Those who prefer the ‘staycation’ kind of holiday will be limited in what that can do

As we begin to experience summer weather conditions the natural tendency is to start thinking about vacation. It certainly cannot be denied that we all, but particularly those providing  essential services, have earned a good rest. However, as with virtually all aspects of life with COVID-19, things will be different this summer.

People who would have traveled will be unable to do so. Those who prefer the ‘staycation’ kind of holiday will be limited in what that can do, given the cancellation of festivals and other annual events.

So, we are looking at spending time locally, with our neighbours. For those with access to balconies this is the year to spruce-up your perch and spend as much time on it as the weather permits. For those without that option, social-distancing in parks is probably your best bet.

It would appear that for many Canadians Balconville is…the best vacation option for this coming summer

It is with this in mind that I write to you, the national broadcaster, with a suggestion. I believe this would be an ideal time for someone with the wherewithal to produce a televion version of David Fennario’s classic play Balconville.

It would appear that for many Canadians Balconville is, whether they want it or not, the best vacation option for this coming summer.
