Based on the real-life experiences of the playwright's parents, this comedy, Harvest tells the story of Allan and Charlotte, farmers who trade their lives in the country for a condo in the city. When they rent their farmhouse to a young pilot intent on raising a different "crop," they begin a journey filled with an assortment of unforgettable characters all played by the same two talented actors.
