The Dewdney Players made their comeback to the Rotary Performing Arts Centre stage on Oct. 22 for the opening night of I Take This Man.

The comedy written by Jack Sharkey is set in the '80s and tells the story of lovesick Gideon (played by Anne-Marie Cotton) who finds the unconscious Bret (Logan Coutts) at the Boston Marathon and on impulse asks a nearby police officer (Eric Baxter) to help bring him to her apartment claiming him to be her husband.

The resultant comedy is stoked by roommate Charlene (Claire Hoyer) and her fiancee Dex (Blaine Schlechter) as they contend with Gideon's judgment.
