Granite Theatre , 1 Granite St. , Westerly, RI
“Old Love” by Norm Foster - From the author of THE LOVE LIST, the story spans three decades and half a dozen meetings between Bud, a salesman, and Molly, his boss’ wife. One of them is smitten from the very first meeting - the other, let’s just say - less so. The story is straightforward, easy and funny. Canada’s pre-eminent comic playwright Norm Foster has written a clever and witty dialogue celebrating the pursuit of love, the kind of love that makes you breathe just a little bit faster. Charmingly written, Foster’s use of one-liners serve the script well and has the audience smiling, chuckling and laughing throughout the entire play.april 11 through May 4, $20, $17 seniors, $12 children; (401) 596-2341
