Old Love, written by Norm Foster
directed by Gordon McInnis

 

The story spans three decades and half a dozen meetings between Bud, a salesman and Molly, his boss’s wife. He’s recently divorced. She’s newly widowed. At her husband’s funeral, an old acquaintance emerges to pay his respects, leading to a re-awakening of forgotten emotions.

This very funny play is written by Canada’s pre-imminent comic playwright, Norm Foster. His clever script will have audiences smiling, chuckling and laughing right out loud throughout the entire play.

This play is being done as a two-hander. A two-hander is a term for a play with only two main characters, in Old Love being played by Lynnia Clark and Christan Ostaffy. The two characters in question often display differences in social standing or experiences, differences that are explored and possibly overcome as the story unfolds.

2017-2018 Season - Ladysmith Little Theatre


Mrs Mannerly by Jeffery Hatcher directed by Charles Harman



Aug 10-27 


Jeffrey Hatcher conjures up the world of a ten-year-old studying manners. Mrs. Mannerly is a demanding teacher, and no student in her thirty-six years of etiquette classes has achieved a perfect score. But when he discovers her secret past, Young Jeffrey is determined to be the first to achieve this feat. 



It’s Only a Play by Terrence McNally directed by Mort Paul



Sept 21-Oct 8 


It’s the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway. The group awaiting the reviews includes the excitable playwright; the unstable director; the pill-popping leading lady; the playwright’s best friend, who passed up this production for a television series,and a drama critic who’s panned the playwright in the past. It’s a prime recipe for narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality—and for comedy



Quartet by Ronald Harwood directed by Mary Lou Reside



Nov 9-26


Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred reside in a home for retired opera singers. Each year there is a concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their equilibrium. Still a diva she refuses to sing. But the show must go on in this funny and poignant play by the author of Another Time, The Dresser and Interpreters..



The Kitchen Witches by Caroline Smith directed by Josee Duffhues



Feb 15-March 4


Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are two "mature" cable-accesses cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. Together on a TV show called The Kitchen Witches, the insults are flung harder than the food! Dolly's long-suffering TV-producer son Stephen tries to keep them on track, but the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer!



Once upon a Mattress music by Mary Rodgers and lyrics by Marshall Barer directed by Mort Paul

April-12- May 6


If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab. Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar. It wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night. Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, this rollicking musical spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides side-splitting shenanigans.
