Long Weekend: Sunday Week 2
In Norm Foster’s hit comedy of bad manners, high-powered lawyer Max Trueman and his psychologist wife, Wynn, invite another married couple, Abby and Roger, to their summer home for a quiet weekend in the country. It proves to be anything but. Over the course of about an hour and fifty minutes, during which audiences are typically laughing almost continuously, the foursome tells one too many uncomfortable truths about one another. Soon all the gloves come off – along with other items of clothing, as the married couples go after each other’s spouses in a game of mixed doubles that has nothing to do with Max’s private tennis court.
Norm Foster, called the Neil Simon of Canada, is the most produced playwright in his country’s history, and his plays export well; the Los Angeles Times, reviewing a California production of The Long Weekend, concluded: “Norm Foster scores a bullseye with this tickling romp about mismatched spouses.”
This full production, with sets and costumes, is directed by Brian Munroe, a Canadian theater professional who just recently moved to San Miguel. His talented cast members are Gerri Baruch, Christopher Berns, Clara Dunham, and Eli Hans.
