"On a First Name Basis", written by Canada's most produced playwright Norm Foster,
and directed by Port Stanley Festival Theatre's Artistic Director Simon Joynes,
delivers an emotional performance of how too much success really does go to your
head, and for a love in the shadows not told for eighteen years.
An unfolding love story of two opposites in a working relationship where first names
were not on a first name basis. Terry Barna as David Kilbride, is a writer of 12
successful spy novels currently with writers block and single after three failed
marriages. Susan Johnston-Collins as Lucy the housekeeper who has been watching
and working for David for 28 years. The chemistry, the quick delivery of witty dialogue,
and the comfortable ambience of the surrounding set delivers a performance that
keeps the audience glued to their seats waiting for more. A instantaneous standing
ovation was the reward for this delightful production of love finally realized by
Eric Bunnell did an outstanding job on the set design for this production. Credit
goes to Tony Sclafani for the lighting design, Lani Martel as stage manager, Jory
Mclean as assistant stage manager, and Port Stanley's Kettle Creek Inn as show sponsor.
"On a First Name Basis" runs from June 7th to July 1st, 2017, and it's the show
that you will want to remember the next time you find love!
