From one of Canada’s favourite playwright’s, Norm Foster, comes On a First Name Basis. This insightful play explores the relationship between a very successful, but cantankerous novelist who discovers he knows nothing about his maid of 28 years. She, on the other hand, knows absolutely everything about him! With revelations that are surprising, funny and extremely moving, this is a love story, a social commentary and a mystery wrapped in witty dialogue and vivid imagery.
Playwright Norm Foster (recently honoured as an Order of Canada recipient) is often compared to American playwright Neil Simon and British playwright Alan Ayckbourn. From his sharp and witty dialogue emerge real characters that often feel familiar.
Directed by Claude A. Giroux, starring Louise Porter (Always…Patsy Cline) and Ryan Crocker (Here on the Flight Path, Storm Warning).
