The Foursome

September 20-23 (4 performances)
By Norm Foster
From The Foster Festival
Directed by Jamie Williams
Location: Cranberry Golf Course.
Performed on an actual golf course!

Rick, Ted, Donnie, and Cameron are home for their fifteen-year college reunion; a great time to go out for a game of golf and catch up on each other’s lives. Unlike their college days, the conversation doesn’t include talk of beer and final exams, but of colonoscopies, home-security systems, alcoholism, Buddhism, and more.
