Old Academy Players proudly presents LOOKING: Delightful, Hilarious Comedy

by Patricia Bradford

The delightful, hilarious comedy Looking, written by Norm Foster, Canada’s most produced playwright, is the third show in Old Academy Players exciting 2014-15 season. It runs January 9 through 25, 2015.

Directed by Christopher Wunder and produced by Nancy Frick and Ben Marshal, Looking stars Old Academy super stars Norman Burnosky, Terri Bateman, Jim Golden and Bonnie Kapenstein. The story is hilarious, sexy, touching and very human with twist and turns that will enchant and amuse you. Four middle-aged people: Val, a nurse; Andy, the owner of an unsuccessful storage business; Nina, a policewoman; and Matt, a morning TV host make up the cast. Three are divorced; one, Nina never married.

Val answers an ad and agrees to go on a blind date with Andy. Matt and Nina go along as reluctant chaperones. Complications, misunderstandings and hilarity follow as the reluctant duo hook up while the dating couple does not. The play is a wonderful character study of four lonely, individually quirky people finding it is not too late for love. You will leave the theatre with a warm smile on your face and a very happy heart!
