ON A FIRST NAME BASIS by Norm Foster, a staged reading
September 24 @ 8:00 pm
On a First Name Basis is a charming, witty and a conversational two actor play that revolves around David Kilbride, a very successful, well-to-do author – and a rather less successful human being, who has received some devastating news he’s kept to himself.
Enter Lucy Hopperstaad, Kilbride’s housekeeper of two decades, has known and been with this man for more than 20 years of employment., Yet, in the course of an evening, it becomes very clear that David knows absolutely nothing about the woman who has, for all intents and purposes, been closer to him than any other human being. Lucy has her own secret that she’s afraid to admit. As Lucy is getting ready to end her shift, David invites her to stay and have a drink, curious about the woman who’s been tending to his house all these years. But as the night sets in and the drinks start to flow, secrets reveal themselves, for better or worse.
